Recyclable v Biodegradable – what’s the difference?

Here at Vectair, we recognise that the environment is important. We ensure our products & industrial processes are ethical, environmentally friendly & economically viable. With that in mind, what is the difference between recyclable materials & materials that are biodegradable? Both sound good, both usually come with green, eco-friendly looking labelling, so where do the differences lie?

Changing Seasons, Changing Scents

Changing Seasons, Changing Scents

Well, we never thought it would arrive but Summer’s finally here in the U.K., and with it comes a natural shift in how we change our chosen fragrances – spiced orange is nice but doesn’t give off the Summer vibe in the same way as fresh mango does! In the same way we swap Winter boots for Summer sandals, we also switch our fragrance choices when the seasons change. So what prompts this change?

The History of Scent

The History of Scent

There’s nothing like going back to your roots and as this is our thirtieth year of trading, what better than to take a look at the history of scent! The term ‘scent’ is often used alongside, or instead of, the terms ‘fragrance’ and ‘perfume’, but these can mean different things. A scent can be both natural (i.e. the scent of flowers) and man made, whereas a ‘fragrance’ or a ‘perfume’ tend to mean man made products.

Why it is important to reduce VOC emissions

Why it is important to reduce VOC emissions

We’re proud that a number of our products are VOC exempt, but we do realize that not everybody will understand what that means, or why we ensure they meet & exceed standards for VOC emissions. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) can be potentially dangerous, so it’s important to understand what they are - organic chemicals that have a low boiling point. Lack of VOC exempt/low VOC products is one of the biggest issues, both for the manufacturer & the consumer/user.

Packaging – is it really a viable marketing opportunity?

Packaging – is it really a viable marketing opportunity?

Recent statistics from Statistics Explained show that packaging waste figures across the EU have started to creep back up, especially paper and cardboard which came in at a staggering 41% of all packaging waste generated in 2014. With the marketing opportunities created by packaging your goods to send to end users, is this a waste of time if such large amounts of packaging are then being thrown away rather than kept, reused or recycled?

Festive Hygiene

Christmas is always a time to try and kick back, relax, and have a break before the new year starts, but with the extra time spent at home does come the added chore of extra cooking and cleaning, especially during Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day – these are the 3 top days for people to cook big meals and buffets over the festive period and the top 3 days where it’s more than important than ever to keep on top of your food, prep and home hygiene!

Putting the ‘scent’ in sentimental

Putting the 'scent' in sentimental

Look around on the shelves at your nearest perfume store & you'll see that we've all become a bit sentimental with our fragrance options. None of the perfumes in the predicted top 10 for Christmas best sellers are brand new fragrances. So have our noses 'grown old', are our new retail scents 'out of touch' or are the clientele just wanting a touch of nostalgia back in their lives amidst all the advancements in modern life?

False Advertising = False Economy

False Advertising = False Economy

It’s important not to mislead customers with false advertising – common sense tells you that if something isn’t bought as described, there’s going to be problems. Brand reputation is crucially important yet so easily tarnished, so creating and upholding strict guidelines is extremely important with any type of marketing or PR you produce and syndicate!
