Improve Sustainability In Your Business with VELCRO® Brand Reusable Cable Ties

Throwing one piece of plastic into the trash may not seem significant but doing that hundreds of times a day is a different story. Many companies are adding sustainability goals to their corporate social responsibility initiatives in an effort to reduce scrap and their environmental footprint. This includes the reduction of single use materials to prevent volume in landfills. These trends can impact cable installers for a few reasons, but reusable cable ties such as VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Fasteners are a great alternative to align with sustainability goals.

Data Centers Become Greener with Reusable Components

In the digital era, data centers are the heart and brains for business operations and data storage. There are a lot of materials that go into serving and maintaining them, from the copper in the CAT 6A cables to the metals in the cabinets. With so many fabricated materials required, many companies are re-thinking what goes into their operations in order to achieve their environmental goals. This green push will audit materials, costs and energy use.

Additionally, certain government regulations are pushing businesses to seek alternatives to single-use materials. The European Union recently introduced a tax on single-use plastic products, based on volume. This tax could evolve to impact additional businesses in more locations, including data centers. How can cable installers adapt to these environmental objectives, without compromising on the connectivity that their customers heavily rely on? The answer is to reuse materials.

VELCRO® Brand Reusable Cable Ties Reduce Scrap & Align with Environmental Goals

VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® cable ties and tape answer the need to reduce or eliminate single use materials. Anytime cables need to be moved, these fasteners can be cycled up to 2,000 times which means for each hook and loop tie used, it can save up to 2,000 cut plastic ties.

Technology is quickly evolving in the digital era. This often requires frequent moves, adds and changes within cable installations. If your installation needs to replace a few cables, that will create a pile of snipped plastic ties. With VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape, there is no scrap. Simply unfasten, reposition and refasten.

Velcro Companies has manufacturing locations worldwide to address regional needs and reduce lead times. This can reduce the number of trucks on the road and airplanes in the sky that need to haul more inventory across seas and borders.

VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape is trusted by many cable installers worldwide and aligns with many industry standards. Don’t risk having to re-do an installation because it violates a new regulation; invest in the future with VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape.
