An Environmentally Friendly Option

carbon_neutralAt Band CDs and our parent company, Wizbit Internet Services Ltd, we take our environmental responsibility very seriously and try to make our company and CD, DVD and cassette packaging as green and environmentally friendly as possible.

Carbon Neutral

We are now a carbon neutral company and plant trees in the Great Rift Valley in Kenya and support other verified carbon reduction projects around the world to offset our emissions through carbonfootprint.com

100% Renewable Energy

All of our electricity comes from ecotricity.co.uk on their New Energy Plus tariff that is 64% produced by Ecotricity wind turbines and then topped up by 100% renewable energy from other providers, leaving us with 100% green electricity.

Disc recycling

Any discs or cases that are wasted during production are sent for recycling where the aluminium and polycarbonate contents are separated and then used in the manufacture of new items that require hard plastics or aluminium. We use a company called Discrecycling.co.uk based in Leicester as they can process a huge range of polymers including HDPE, LDPE, PP, ABS, PC, HIPS, PA6, PA66, MDPE, PC/ABS and many more. If you have any CDs, DVDs or cases that you would like to be recycled then please visit the discrecycling.co.uk web site for further information of where to send your discs for free of charge recycling. We also provide waste discs and cassettes to artists for installations and works that reuse them.

Environmentally-friendly packaging

Many of our products can be supplied on recycled card stocks rather than the plain white standard stocks, plus we also have some specific products that are 100% recycled, such as our Eco digipaks that are made from recycled card and then have a disc tray made from recycled egg boxes and a central disc stud made from cork! They look really unusual and very eye catching if you want to help promote your product as being kind to the planet.

Carbon Neutral Courier Delivery

Our main couriers, Interlink Express, are also 100% carbon neutral, so for any emissions from their delivery vehicles, they are busy planting trees or helping to reduce pollution across the world through carbon offsetting.

In Addition…

Most of our employees live locally to where we are based in Hampshire, we have staff that participate in the Cycle to Work scheme operated by the government, 50% of our company cars are zero-emissions electric vehicles and we try to minimise the carbon footprint in the office through LED lighting and turning off equipment that isn’t in use where possible. We also recycle cardboard packaging in addition to the disc recycling mentioned above.

What our customers say

4.8/5.0 on Facebook

I've had a 50 CD order for a classical music project. The audio quality was very high, and I loved the black vinyl CDs. The digipak printing was perfect, the staff was friendly and helpful, and overall it was a lovely experience. As a minor issue, I personally find the booklet pocket needlessly large, but that is a matter of taste. I would definitely recommend them. Many thanks for the professional services!read more

Fantastic!! Just had some gorgeous black vinyl record style CD's done for my EP and the quality is spot on!! They look absolutely gorgeous, proper full colour centre, and record style wallet. They also do great presentation cases and a bargain on mailing envelopes for CD's too. So glad I found this gem of a company and will definitely be using them again!! :) @ortenseblueread more

Can't rate BandCDs highly enough, 5 stars doesn't even come close, from day 1 they help me with every issue I had with my CDs right through to the final product, the range of products is also mind blowing , from normal everyday CDs to mini vinyl CDs which is what I opted for for my own release, there is something for everyone here, can I personally thank everyone at BandCDs for their excellent service and friendly approach, The Plastic Fantastic Ep was The Skalps first release and we will 100% return to BandCDs for future releases. Thank you from all at Skalps Hq.read more

Band CDs did a run of cassettes for me in August and they are beautiful. The full on-body printing is a great option and the quality of the J-cards is excellent. Delivery was very fast and the price quoted was extremely competitive. I have since ordered from them again.read more

Band CDs are doing an awesome work with tape manufacturing, their professionalism and efficiency is amazing and the tapes I received are high quality products and they know how to handle problems such as delivery issues. I ordered a batch of 50 tapes for my label, which was lost by the delivery service and after a few months of being in contact with the delivery service trying to locate the parcel, they sent me another batch of 50 tapes that they re-produced. Couldn't recommend Band CDs enough.read more

Can't recommend these guys enough. I worked closely with a chap called Michael at BandCDs on a small batch of cassette tapes. He was an absolute legend! His meticulous attention to detail was unlike anything else I've experienced from any of the printers/manufacturers I've dealt with in the past at other companies. He ensured that certain elements of the design lined up and also bent over backwards to make sure the colour of the printed J Cards matched nicely with the colour of the plastic cassette. Top this off with an extremely quick turnaround, high quality products, great sounding audio and all at the lowest price I could find anywhere online and you can see why it's smiles all round in my house! Great job, thanks again all! :)read more
