Designstar offers the next step in organic marketing


Within te context of the theme Green Fits All, Plantarium participant Designstar presents sustainable labels, pot covers and complete Euro- or CC-trolleys decorations, made of PLM BIO. PLM BIO is an fully biodegradable material and is specially developed for the floriculture sector. This product combines unique properties with an attractive price. The next step towards a more sustainable market is easy to take with PLM BIO and the floriculture sector gets greener: Green Fits All.

PLM BIO is a truly Dutch product that is FSC certified and also meets the NEN 13432 standard. The special composition of this material makes it moisture-resistant and suitable for many applications.

Responsible business
At this moment, when there is a lot of discussion about the climate agreement, people quickly focus on the green sector. Farmers and horticulturists are seen as major polluters and some political parties would rather see us go than come. But compared to other sectors, the agriculture and horticulture are not doing so badly. The CO2 reduction is already huge and it looks like the climate targets for our sector can be achieved with ease.

"This encourages us to look at even more and better solutions, both in environmental and social terms. For example, PLM BIO is a very good alternative to the known plastics such as polypropylene. Designstar produces all its products in the Netherlands, in order to limit logistical movements and to remain flexible. Subsequently, the labels, pot covers and POS materials are mostly processed at social work companies. By working for a real company, the employees there experience what it is like to participate in society and how valuable they are. We couldn't do it without them," said Leo van Antwerpen, director at Designstar.

Johan de Jong, purchasing and R&D manager at Designstar: "Due to the changing market, we, as a supplier, have to be on top of innovations in our sector. Investing in new digital production systems was therefore a must. This allows us to switch quickly where necessary and to deliver any desired quantity. What results in less waste, which is good for the environment. "

Complete CC-trolley decoration
"Pace ​​is also playing an increasingly important role for our customers. More and more they deliver complete Euro- or CC-trolleys to retailers in particular. In addition to the labels and pot-covers, Designstar supplies the necessary decorations, such as CC or EC strips or top cards. This way the Euro- or CC-trolleys can be driven directly onto the shop floor and it looks fancy as well. And yes, this can be done quickly as well as in bio! "Laughs Joey Blom, account manager at Designstar.
