We all share responsibilities when it comes to taking care of the environment. It is up to us to make sure that sustainability is a part of our day-to-day lives. That is why we make sure to take every measure possible when it comes to recycling and reusing material used in the record production at RPM Records. In order to reduce plastic waste we offer environmentally friendly alternatives for record production, packaging and transportation.
ECO FRIENDLY SOLUTIONS IN VINYL PRODUCTION
The innovative design of the automatic vinyl record press Warm Tone from Viral Technologies allows a significant PVC waste cut, reduced energy consumption and quicker record pressing cycles compared to older presses – down to 35 percent less waste and 25 seconds to press a single record. RPM Records is also using a closed loop water cooling system that allows full recycling of water.
Usually, the vinyl production leads to 20% excess plastic waste that we break, grind and blend it with virgin PVC. Recycling every miss-pressed record and the majority of other plastic waste is a daily practice at RPM Records.
We can also press your records 100 percent recycled on request. While recycled plastic is more tricky to work with, our team will evaluate possibilities on a project-to-project basis and will offer the most reasonable solutions.
A variety of biodegradable, recycled and wood-free paper alternatives and plant based inks for all print works or packaging is available to order at RPM Records. Every order contains Tullis Russel center labels – the most environmentally friendly paper solution on the market.
We discourage our clients from ordering shrink wrap. Instead, offering plastic sleeve alternatives – a life-time protection from water damage, dirt or usual wear & tear.
Our team acknowledges the need to seal a brand-new record. For the mare sealing purposes, we developed a biodegradable sticker solution to keep records safe and mint in the original packaging.
We always choose most eco-friendly courier services in Denmark for delivering your orders. If you are a local client, we will deliver your test pressings with a carbon neutral bike messenger the same day.
