Developing innovative and exciting new products from recycled materials is key to strengthening sustainable local markets for recycled materials in the UK and Northwest.

There are also real business benefits to be realised by using recycled materials over virgin materials. Cutting raw material costs, reducing energy requirements and making carbon savings are some of the many advantages which companies can benefit from by utilising recycled materials in product manufacture. It will also help meet the growing customer demand for sustainable products.

Envirolink Northwest’s event aims to explore opportunities for developing new and existing recycled products, stimulate new design ideas and collaborations between Northwest product designers, manufacturers, and recycled material suppliers as well as address some of the issues and perceived barriers to using recycled materials.
