SPAR wholesaler leads innovative scheme to reduce plastic waste by 40%

James Hall & Co, SPAR UK wholesaler for the North of England, has launched a scheme to help increase the sustainability of their stores by reducing the amount of unnecessary plastic waste on the shop floor.

James Hall developed the scheme in partnership with Concept Data Display Ltd, working to address the issue of plastic waste created by in-store ticket rails.

Dave Saunders, Sales Director of Concept Data Display Ltd explained: “Ticket rails are still one of our biggest selling products and large numbers are used throughout stores to display prices and promotions.

“These rails are currently manufactured as a single piece so when the clear plastic front becomes worn or damaged, the whole unit has to be replaced. We felt that there had to be a greener solution.”

Working in partnership with James Hall, Concept Data Display Ltd developed a two-part ticket rail called Enviro-2.

The patented design provides a more cost-effective and sustainable solution for retailers, allowing for the replacement of solely the clear plastic front when it becomes worn or damaged.

Dave added:  “The new ticket rail has been designed to fit the Caem shelving system and it is the first of a range of ticket rails we will be manufacturing.

“This scheme aims to reduce the scrappage of ticket rails within stores by 40% and we are delighted to be working with James Hall & Co to provide a more sustainable option for retailers.”

Keith Rose from James Hall Store Design said: “As SPAR UK wholesaler for the North of England, James Hall & Co are committed to addressing sustainability issues within the industry.

“The new ticket rail will be trialled in our newest company owned store, SPAR G&E Murgatroyd Kirkby Stephen and following a successful trial, the two-part ticket rail will be rolled out across our retail portfolio.”

Keith added: “We are proud to be working alongside Concept Data Display Ltd to help our retailers improve their environmental footprint.”
