Play time for the Painted Dogs at Port Lympne with our cardboard cores.

During the manufacture of self-adhesive labels, dozens of heavy duty cardboard cores are removed from material master reels every week and disposed of. We’re unable to use them for our reels of printed labels as they are the wrong weight for the finished products.

This hasn’t sat too well with us, so in an age when we all want to do our best for the environment by recycling we looked for options. So for the last couple of years we’ve been sending the cardboard cores to various zoos and wildlife parks for their animal enrichment programs.

We were delighted to receive this video below of the pack of African Painted Dogs at Port Lympne enjoying playing with the cores. Play with sound to hear the happy squeals!
