To offer a diverse range of creative embellishments to our cards we have partnered with the inspirational and environmentally conscious team at FoilCo. Again, like all our partners what drew us to FoilCo was their unique approach to reducing their impact on the environment through their Zero2landfill scheme. 

One common question we get asked is ‘Is the foil recyclable?’ The answer is yes - foil is so thin that it dissipates within the re-pulping process on our paperboard.

Foilco are leaders their industry and are changing misconceptions about foil as well as trying to change the way that companies handle their foil waste. Together we can now support our customers through the Zero2Landfill initiative by collecting their foil waste and placing it through our own specialist waste management systems.
