‘Happy customers are our priority’

Eco

As a company it is our aim to be as Carbon Neutral so our eco ethos underpins every business decision we make.  Examples of this include: 

We source our uniform from suppliers who meet stringent criteria for the production of their clothing.  This is everything from the raw materials, production technique, shipping methods and packaging.  

1

Paper and Cardboard

We will always buy recycled paper products unless there is no other alternative. 

We will reuse and/or recycle all paper where possible.

Our paper and card is collected and recycled by a specialist local firm. 

2

Plastic

We work with our suppliers to reduce plastic packaging as much as possible. 

We re-use plastic packaging where possible

We re-cycle our plastic packaging at a local plant that processes it in the North West

We will regularly ask our suppliers to consider the amount of micro plastics in their products

We have banned the use of single use plastics in the workplace.   

We use biodegradable plastic bags for all deliveries and where possible use biodegradable carrier bags in the shop.  Where this isn’t possible we use plastic bags made from recycled plastic and charge customers to purchase them in the shop.  

3

Energy and Water

We seek to reduce the amount of energy used as much as possible. 

Lights and electrical equipment will be switched off when not in use.

Heating will be adjusted with energy consumption in mind.

The energy consumption and efficiency of new products will be taken into account when purchasing.

We have installed LED lighting in as much of the work premises as possible and will look to replace all lighting with LED by 2023.

Office Supplies and Purchasing

We  evaluate if the need can be met in another way. 

We evaluate the environmental impact of any new products we intend to purchase.

We sell garments wherever possible that are manufactured from recycled materials such as blazers that are made from plastic bottles.

We actively promote more environmentally friendly and efficient products wherever possible.

We reuse and recycle everything we are able to including toner cartridges, paper and office supplies

The Use of Transport

The MD currently drives a Hybrid car.  Whilst we have a company Van this is Diesel and so where possible local trip and deliveries and made in the Hybrid Car and the Van is only used for larger Items.   

Any future company vehicles will be Hybrid or Electric

Monitoring and Improvement

We ensure employee awareness through induction, training and incentive schemes.  

We involve staff in the implementation of this policy, for greater commitment and improved performance (our green team).

We are encouraging staff to reduce the amount of waste products. Staff are provided with a drinks bottle and single use plastic bottles are banned. Staff are encouraged to bring lunches in re-usable or paper containers 

We use local labour and materials where available to reduce CO2 and help the community. 

We reward staff who come up with energy saving, waste reduction or recycling initiatives. 

We promote sustainable and recycled clothing through our Smart Futures recycling scheme.  

We run a year long eco campaign on social media with themes each month  

We support other business to be environmentally friendly through talks, articles and presentations
