Improving Sustainability Credentials of Display Units

Published: September 28, 2023

Innovation to Eliminate Plastics in Key Retailer Displays

Back in 2019, Easypack Displays, our innovative Temporary Cardboard Displays operation, approached our client, the UK’s leading grocery retailer, with a ground-breaking idea which, if adopted, could prove to be pivotal from a sustainability perspective. 

The need to address the issue of single-use plastic MOP trays had been recognised within our team some time earlier. They had for decades been commonly used on the base of temporary cardboard display units, and there were millions disposed of after only one use. These plastic MOP trays were developed and initially used to protect the cardboard stands when the floor of the store was cleaned or mopped by hand, as was common practice. However, with the advances in equipment technology and the introduction of ever improving automated cleaning systems, this practice was, we felt, no longer necessary. With our design team skills, we proposed a solution that would eliminate the need for these plastic mop trays altogether and permanently.

After an extensive trial period, we were absolutely delighted to receive official approval and sign off for our innovative, environmentally friendly project. This milestone marked a significant step towards further reducing plastic waste in the retail sector and promoting sustainability within the retail industry. This solution is now being adopted by other organisations in the sector.
