Leach, the graphic display specialist,  has revealed the latest “eco” additions to its portfolio.

The Yorkshire-headquartered company has invested more than 100 man-hours into its latest product suite over the past year – designed to further bolster its long-held “green conscience”. Now available to customers, the 16 environmentally-friendly materials are PVC-free, recycled or recyclable.

Gaining customer insight, Leach has also recently polled the opinions of 164 decision-makers from some of the world’s leading brands – including Vauxhall, Arcadia Group, Estée Lauder and Beaverbrooks – in order to establish what really matters when it comes to visual installations.

More than half of the respondents said that being green was a strategic priority for their board, with 49 per cent stating their company’s investment into environmentally conscious products would increase in 2020. Interestingly, 64 per cent of people said purchasing decisions were made with the eco impact in mind.

James Lavin, managing director at Leach, said: “It’s no secret that the environmental issues in society have pushed companies to adopt a greater ‘eco stance’ – in the quest to ensure business remains strong while striving to protect the planet.

“Leach has always been of this mindset, but we’ve taken things a step further with the launch of our complete eco range. We’ve already received some fantastic feedback and, importantly, these greener solutions have no detrimental impact on the high-quality results provided – the ‘wow factor’ is still extremely apparent!”

The newly-launched Eco Screen is made from 100 per cent recycled yarn. This state-of-the-art textile can be used across a range of fabric graphic communications, with minimal impact upon the environment. 

The Leach Box meanwhile, is the latest iteration of the firm’s lightbox. With power consumption having been reduced by 30 per cent and having slashed manufacturing time in half, the new design centres around a reduction in carbon footprint.
