Writing instruments manufacturer edding is switching from conventional to recycled aluminium for the production of its permanent markers.

In recent months, edding and its partner, Linhardt, have made significant technical advances in their efforts to introduce alternative materials into the manufacturing process. As a result, from the start of 2024, the most popular colours of edding 3000 permanent markers will be made using 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) aluminium.

The vendor deliberately chose its best-selling item as the groundbreaker for this new material, saying it wants to bring the benefits of recycled aluminium to as many customers as possible. By the end of 2024, edding expects the majority of its products to be produced using PCR aluminium.

In order to avoid any unwanted environmental impacts, existing stocks will – as far as possible – be sold before the new products are put on sale.
