With the Kerala High Court banning use of flex and other non-biodegradable materials, Bengaluru based Universal Products has launched an eco-friendly alternative for flex under the brand name of EcoSigns.
Dipen Mehta, Managing Director, Universal Products told reporters here that the fully recyclable PE EcoSigns and EcoSigns Biodegradable can be used for campaign in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
“It is the first time an alternative for flex is launched in India. Our products are 100 per cent PVC-free, 100 per cent recyclable, and biodegradable as per the IS/ISO 15985 report. The products do not emit any hazardous gases when it comes in contact with chemicals like solvent ink and it is scientifically proven, Mehta said.
According to Mehta, the acceptance of EcoSigns, which does not have any hazardous effects, has been growing as many corporate firms, advertising and printing agencies started using the product.
