Current Actions and Aims
Plastic Bagging of Clothes
As of 1st March 2019 we will no longer individually bag our clothing garments.
This change will help us meet our promise to protect the environment by significantly reducing our plastic usage. This also reflects an increased requirement to reduce wastage for our clients, particularly relating to unnecessary packaging.
Paperless Sales Team
Going forward, we are also aiming for our sales team to reduce their paper usage by 75% by the end of 2019 – except for our wonderful diaries and notebooks of course! This will drastically reduce the amount of paper we use overall as a company and reduce our carbon footprint at the same time.
