Environmental Policy

 

Working with our sister company, Silverchilli, we are keen to ensure that we do our bit for the environment and that we consider it throughout our business activities. Notably there are things we can do to neutralise the carbon that our business creates through international deliveries, and we can choose our packaging carefully to ensure that it is as environmentally friendly as possible.

Carbon Neutralising

How do we do that?! Easy…. plant trees! As many as is necessary to neutralise the carbon generated by our airfreight deliveries. Equally we also offset all our business travel both internationally and in the UK. In partnership with UK charity, The Woodland Trust, PlanetSilverchilli and Silverchilli have started planting trees in woods around the UK. It takes just 5 trees to neutralise the carbon from one of our deliveries which flies from Mexico to London. If you would like to join us by offsetting your holiday flights then just email [email protected].com and we’ll happily pass on the details, so we can literally grow together. 

Stationary & Supplies

All our headed paper, delivery notes and other literature are printed on recycled paper. As a business we use the reverse of each sheet of waste paper and we send all catalogues as .pdf files, ensuring that we never have to discard piles of out of date literature.

Packaging

We use recycled packaging wherever possible, but more importantly we re-use as much of the packaging that comes our way too. So if you ever get polystyrene chips from us, it is not because we bought them! We are simply reusing the ones sent to us. Equally, forgive us if you think you delivery box looks a little lived it…. it is because it is re-used. We are trying to tread as lightly on the earth as possible. However, if you are ever sending a gift through us, have no fear! We will always use brand new boxes, as we understand that not everyone may realise that there is an environmental objective behind our packaging choices.

And all that office waste paper that was used on both sides… turns into the shredded paper that protects your fab bags en route to you, ensuring that it turns up in good condition.

Development

We are constantly looking for new ways to reduce our impact on the environment, and will continue to monitor developments in this area and implement as many initiatives as possible. We would also welcome your comments and suggestions at [email protected].com… Get in touch!
