BADGETEC is the launch of an innovative product line of meeting badges that are 100% recyclable as paper. By eliminating the plastic holders from the tens of millions of name badges discarded each year, BADGETEC will reduce the production of polyvinyl chloride plastics (PVC) by million of tons. This will directly contribute to the reduction of acid rain (from the hydrochloric acid) which is produced when PVC is burned and discarded. After several years of sustained product development effort, we are proud to have developed these new types of eco-friendly name badges and meeting products.
