The swap to Biodegradable PVC and rPET (recycled plastic bottles) material.
Village Hotel Club is leading the way in the industry by making the decision to move all of their keycards, membership cards and lanyards to a more sustainable material.
All of their cards are now made from Biodegradable PVC, and all lanyards have now been swapped to rPET material, made from recycled plastic bottles.
Biodegradable PVC breaks down and degrades faster than normal PVC or recyclable PVC due to the additive included during manufacturing. This additive literally ‘eats away’ at the card when it enters the right conditions, e.g. active landfill.
This means of ‘breaking down’ also results in less greenhouse gas emissions and a reduction in carbon dioxide levels.
Recycled PET uses a more eco-friendly manufacturing process than regular PVC and can be indefinitely recycled. It’s the material found in plastic bottles, so most RPET products once lived life as a drinking bottle.
