Environmentally Friendly CD?

Now I am getting closer to producing the book, I have to try to find the most environmentally friendly CD production process. All CDs and DVDs are made of virgin plastic because recycled plastic always has too much risk of impurities. Any impurity in the disk plastic will result in the laser skipping over that part or returning an error to the reader.

I was unable to find any company that is using a different process to manufacture disks so far, but packaging has come a long way since the plastic jewel case. Many CD/DVD duplication companies have taken the lead in reducing their environmental impact. I am listing my top picks for now and will continue to research until I have to finalize production.

Oasis Disk Manufacturing is probably the best known manufacturer of independent music projects in the US. They have a great reputation in the industry and were one of the first to supply cardboard sleeves instead of jewel cases.

    Thanks so much for the mention above for the Oasis Disc Manufacturing eco-packaging initiatives. I wanted to draw your attention to one of our newest initiatives, the Oasis BottleTray Digipak. The trays are made from 100% postconsumer water and soda bottles that have been spared from landfills. We estimate that a standard order of 1,000 CDs or DVDs keeps four hundred bottles out of a landfill. Below is a link with product information.
    Thanks–Micah

    In the 1990’s I was sourcing recycled cardboard CD covers for a client and Oasis was the only company that sold them. Oasis has provided leadership in the media manufacturing business and kept their products affordable. Thank you for years of support for the indie community and your continued commitment to environmental initiatives. Victoria

    This is brilliant. Thanks for all the research you’ve done into enviro-friendly products and services used to produce and distribute music. This is a valuable service in itself.
