REDUCE


Reducing the amount waste we produce, such as packing materials used for transportation, reducing to only what is absolutely necessary. We have adopted a completely paperless warehouse department, with all pick/dispatch processed through digital scanners.  
We are improving the insulation throughout the building resulting in increasing heat retention, reducing energy required.
We are investigating the viability of installing solar panels, to further increase our energy efficiency
REUSE


Reusing any materials possible, we have removed all single use plastic bottles in the company and have provided all staff with aluminium sustainable, re-usable water bottles.
RECYCLE


Recycling all waste materials by partnering with a Recycling Management company who are committed to minimising the impacts of waste onto the environment, everything that can’t be traditionally recycled is compacted and used to generate power.  All pallets we take that aren’t reused are broken down and used as biomass to provide heating throughout our warehouse.
REPLACE


Replacing any non-environmentally friendly materials with eco-friendly alternatives, such as plastic tapes with paper, black shrink wrap with clear.
Every light in the company has been replaced with 100% LED lighting, many with automatic on/off sensors.
All heating from gas is in the process of being replaced to sustainable Air Source Heat Pumps, as well as our electrical supplies which are changing to renewable suppliers.
2022 ECO PACKAGING OBJECTIVES

1. Reduce our overall plastic output for all retail packaged products by a minimum of 30%.

2. Replace all non-recyclable plastic within retail packaged products with fully recyclable alternatives.

WHAT HAVE WE ACHIEVED SO FAR?


Over the last 2+ years we have ensured that every new product that we launch onto the market is with as little plastic as possible, with the ultimate goal to contain no plastic at all and for whatever packaging to remain to be widely recyclable material, such as card and certain recyclable plastics.


Examples of this:
HANGABLE DOOR HANDLE BOX


Old packaging method was a clam pack, made from non-recyclable thermoformed clam. The goal was to completely eliminate all plastic, we spent many hours coming up with the best way to do this, as there are many solutions on the market that have a card base but use plastic to hold the handles in place. Our solution was able to overcome this.
HANGABLE TIMBER SCREW BOX


Like the handle box, the existing method was a plastic clam pack. The difficulty with this design was that we wanted the packaging to have a window for customers to be able to see the screws inside the box. Ensuring the exact dimensions and packing method was used, this was able to be overcome. We also replaced plastic tape with paper.
HANGABLE HAY NET PACKAGING


The previous method of packaging these items was a to be bagged loose using plastic. Our goal for this project was to not only eliminate the plastic used, but to find a more suitable method of displaying the range in a retail environment. What we created was a paper sleeve with the ability to be hung on a retail display.
