ITVV ECO Policy

ITVV ECO Policy


We like to keep all our valued customers updated on our ITVV ECO Policy

We have been very proactive over the years in trying to minimise our environmental impact and as far as is humanly possible be a friendly ECO player.

LATEST INITIATIVE – DVD SHRINK WRAP
Our latest step (February 2020) in this ongoing effort is, with immediate effect, to stop the shrink wrapping of our DVD products. We feel that there is no need to increase Single Use Plastics (SUPs) and that is exactly what shrink wrap is. You will still receive a brand new DVD product but without the SUP shrink wrap.

DVD CASES
Over the last three or four years we have only used Amaray Ecolite DVD cases. These cases typically use some 7g less material which means that there is a 14% weight saving.

They are manufactured from 100% PolyPropylene. Even the clear inlay film is PP (PolyPropylene). This results in a product that recycles easily up to 20+ times and can be reused for multiple products. The colour pigment is also PP based clean food grade. Therefore if / when the product reaches end of life the Amaray case can be fully recycled.

Amaray create zero scrap – all machine rejects / start up waste is fed back in through the process and reused.

MAIL LITE PACKAGING
We also use Sealed Air Mail Lite bags for our DVD shipping worldwide.

This packaging is designed for recycling with two separate components both being recyclable. Using FSC certified paper from responsible forestry, ensuring that the co-extruded inner bubble is made with at least 60% recycled content, make the mailers environmentally friendly.

The AirCap® bubble liner is now welded around the top, sides and bottom of the bags as opposed to a full lamination which prevents the bags from being recycled. The AirCap bubble contains a minimum of 60% recycled content.

ITVV WEBSITE SERVERS
Since 2017 our main website ( itvv.com ) has been hosted by a datacentre which is powered by 100% renewable energy. No vague carbon offsets, just a direct relationship between the datacentre and Ecotricity to power our web servers with energy generated by 100% renewable sources.
