Enriching People’s Lives by Upcycling Print Materials to Reduce Waste
In the personal care industry, trade shows and events occur throughout the year and across the globe. In the recent past, once a trade show had ended, after a typical two to three days, booths were deconstructed and many materials were consigned to the bin.
However, event organizers are now often mandated to ensure that all of their exhibitors comply with stringent sustainability practices. This means that companies often need to ensure that they use recycled and recyclable materials to construct their booths.
DKSH upcycles artwork from its booths to create new office supplies and giveaways. For example, DKSH France gave the materials from their Cosmet’Agora 2023 booth a new life by repurposing them to create 100 cardholders and 100 document holders, whilst materials with specific DKSH brand elements were used to make gift bags.
This innovative, sustainability-focused initiative allowed DKSH France to repurpose material that would have otherwise been discarded. This initiative is a testament to our efforts to becoming a more responsible and sustainable company.
At DKSH, our purpose is to enrich people’s lives. We do so by providing reliable access to high-quality and responsible products and services, creating sustainable value for our partners, and contributing to raising the quality of life in the communities we operate in by generating jobs, perspectives, and opportunities for people’s development and growth.
