PROTECTING AND INVESTING IN OUR ENVIRONMENT

Ethical Packaging - We believe in being responsible and protecting our environment for all of our children and all future generations. We manufacture a product that is totally bio degradable and recyclable. We also have a 'Cardboard waste collection system' to back that up. If in a worst case scenario a Greyhound box was placed in a ditch by the side of the road - within a matter of a few weeks it would break down and feed the ground, actually forming a compost! If alternatively, that box came back into the management waste collection system that we offer and was recycled into paper, it would come back to us as board ready to be made into another box! So, apart from the electricity used to run our machines, everything is extremely green and environmentally friendly indeed! To support that we have a strong minimal waste and complete recycling policy such that waste is measured and waste reduction is a KPI (Key Performance Indicator) for the production department. We also manage our customers cardboard waste and have a Free of charge cardboard waste recovery service (with all legal and environmental documentation in place). This service gives you the opportunity to reduce cost of skips as we take all your cardboard waste of your hands and ensure it is responsibly recycled. Even in the offices we do our part by having 2 bins per person, one designated for paper recycling.

Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

We are always looking at ways we can reduce our carbon footprint and here are just 2 ways we have improved recently 1) All the cardboard waste generated by our factory stays in the UK for recycling back into paper here. The vast majority of waste from other box manufacturers is currently being shipped abroad for better prices. 2) Our Distribution site has now been moved to a large unit next door thus eliminating truck movements between both sites.
