New interview with Laytoncorp's CEO Steve Layton unpacks Enviro Hide's secret for success, after winning the prestigious 'Best Recycled Product' award at AWRE 2023.

Global GreenTag caught up with Steve Layton, Founder and CEO of Layton Corp and also Enviro Hide by EMTech for a Talking Green video episode. Enviro Hide is an innovative material made from recycled leather products and recognised for its exceptional design quality and commitment to environmental sustainability, winning the 'Best Recycled Product' award at Australasian Waste & Recycling Expo (AWRE) 2023.

A game-changing material, Enviro Hide by EMTech is a fully circular product. At the end of its life, it can be recycled and used again. EMTech's new and original technology is an unwavering commitment to sustainability and innovation in the waste recycling and resource recovery industry.

"We are absolutely thrilled to receive this award," says Steve Layton.

"It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, and it reaffirms our commitment to creating sustainable alternatives to traditional materials. We believe that Enviro Hide has the potential to make a significant impact on reducing waste and promoting a more sustainable future," he adds.

To better communicate the sustainable qualities of Enviro Hide in the market, EMTech has chosen Global GreenTag International for third-party certification.
