We do our very best to minimise the environmental impact of what we do here.
It can be hard to get items delivered in good condition without using loads of packaging materials and we've carried out lots of research on this subject since we started trading in 2007.
As a result, we....
- collect packaging materials from local shops and businesses that we either reassemble into usable boxes, or shred for packaging.
- use a low impact bubble packing printing machine, that creates just the right about of bubble wrap so as to minimise waste
- use a range of recycled alternative packaging materials where possible
This helps us to actually buy in almost no cardboard or shredded paper at all and we estimate we collect and re-use in excess of 5 tonnes of cardboard from going to pulp or landfill each year.
If you want to help keep the overall environmental impact of your order from us to a minimum, please consider offering your used packaging to on your local Facebook group or at least recycle properly at your local recycling centre.
Cars and vans are not great for the environment, let's work together to minimise their impact.
