Wristbands Ireland is very proud to launch our brand new Biodegradable Wristbands onto the local market. It is a product we have been working on for 3 years and after much testing we feel it is ready for use. The bands are made from top quality and durable paper and can be recycled at local facilities. The product is a big step forward for organsiers and venues who are looking to reduce their environmental impact. Customers have asked for a product that is cost effective, tamperproof and that contains no plastic. This fits the criteria nicely as the prices re very similar to tyvek – making them the cheapest wristbands in Ireland. 

It is almost identical to the standard tyvek wristband – however these bands do not include the plastic material. They are still very strong and can be worn for up to 48 hours with only minimal signs of wear and tear. Once they are worn they cannot be removed or transferred, making them ideal for entrance control at venues such as nightclubs, zoos, sports stadiums, schools and others. The one main difference is that these Biodegradable Wristbands cannot come into contact with water, as this will mean they start to degrade and will eventually fall off. Read on for further details and technical specifications of the product.
