Environmental Policy

This is a basic environmental policy to minimise our impact on the environment. 

We believe in contributing to a better world.

Cartons
Where possible, boxes and packaging is recycled material.
New cartons are made from recycled cardboard.
Fully recycled cartons are used where possible

Carton Filling
The protective packaging inside our boxes is completely recycled.
We may use recycled cardboard or recycled bubble wrap (that someone sent to us).
We usually use recycled & biodegradable starch-based packing “peanuts”. The starch in the “peanuts” comes from crop-based sources rather than petroleum-based polystyrene and is non-toxic. They are made from the sorghum, corn or wheat starch. Starch-based “peanuts” dissolve on contact with the water and have been used as garden compost.

Lighting
In 2019, We replaced failing fluorescent lighting systems with low energy LED Lighting throughout our shop.

Office
We send all Toner cartridges to be recycled once used
All memo notepaper is internally recycled product.
All non-critical electronics are turned off outside of office hours.
All printed paper used is a carbon neutral product

Waste Disposal
Cartons not fit for further use are put through the recycle bin.
The paper used in the shop is either shredded or sent for recycling
