Our company is committed to minimising our environmental impact whilst maintaining the highest quality in the products we supply.
We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that each component complies with environmental legislation and meets the necessary standards of quality. Our ordering is planned and consolidated to minimize shipments and reduce our carbon footprint. We have an excellent and longstanding trading relationship with our suppliers and almost all raw materials are sourced in the UK. We are proud to say that all manufacturing takes place in the UK.
WASTE & RECYCLING
We have committed to becoming a paperless office in 2024 and have already considerably reduced the amount of paper used as all invoices and correspondence are sent via email. Documents that are printed are scanned and then shredded and used for packaging. Similarly, the packaging we receive from suppliers is reused as shred in our own shipments or is recycled locally.
Our packaging has been carefully designed to provide maximum protection for orders in transit, whilst taking care to consider the environment. Our cans, bottles and packaging are recyclable or made from recycled materials.
In the last couple of years, we have drastically reduced the amount of plastic bubble wrap used in packaging, replacing it with cardboard.
Waste produced by our staff in the course of daily operations is recycled weekly through the local authority recycling collection service for business.
ENVIRONMENTAL & SOCIAL
We are actively trying to reduce our carbon emissions and have invested in an electric vehicle as a company car, which is available for any staff business travel where public transport is not possible. We frequently use local suppliers for business purposes, supporting the local community and reducing unnecessary journeys.
Employees are encouraged to make a positive social contribution and get involved with local charities. We continue to support local schools, healthcare, and children’s charities with donations.
