How To Recycle Secura’s Direct Mail

At Secura, we use direct mail as part of our marketing efforts as it is a very effective way for us to reach potential new customers for our services.

We are conscious however, of the potential impact that direct mail can have on the environment, if not conducted in a sustainable way.

With this in mind, we have sourced fully recyclable and biodegradable materials for our direct mail campaigns. Below is the step-by-step process for recycling each of the elements of our direct mail, to act as a guide if needed.

  • Open the mailer and remove all of its contents
  • Remove the name badge from the lanyard clip
  • Group the card recyclables. The invitation, name badge, box and mail envelope can all be recycled in the Mixed Card and Paper recycling. Don’t worry about the foil on the box and the invitation, it is also fully recyclable.
  • Cut the plastic and metal clips off each end of the lanyard (you may have either metal, plastic or both). The plastic clip(s) can be put in Plastic recycling and the metal clip can be put in Metal recycling at your local recycling centre.
  • The lanyard itself is made of bamboo meaning it’s 100% biodegradable! It will break down naturally over time, simple pop it your bin. The inks on the lanyard are water-based and non-toxic.
