Why plant trees?

Because they change lives. They provide food and forage for animals. They increase agricultural yields, improve water infiltration and aquifer recharge, and protect soils from wind and water erosion. For more detail on how to get involved with our RED2GREEN initiative please click the link below:

Through our partnership, we help to create sustainable and productive communities throughout the developing world

by financing the teaching and empowering of rural groups to grow sustainable, renewable forests for agriculture and food, water collection and filtration and animal habitat. This is achieved through the provision of education and teams of dedicated individuals in the field who train, support and facilitate hope for members of communities to build better lives for themselves.

Deliveries

In a bid to reduce single-use plastics by 30% before 2021 across our distribution hubs, we’re pleased to announce that we have introduced Eco-friendly packaging throughout our distribution hubs, for small pick parcels! We’re proud that these parcels now contain a cushion of recycled cardboard instead of harmful plastics.

Print:

Through our print offering we have various ways in which clients can minimise their impact on the environment.

Carbon Balanced Paper

There’s been a revolution in the past two decades. And you’ve been part of it.

Paper is now regarded as one of the world’s great sustainable products. It’s biodegradable, recyclable and made from a renewable raw material. And it’s thanks to the whole print supply chain that terms like FSC, PEFC and recycled content have entered the mainstream.

Carbon Balanced Paper in partnership with World Land Trust is the next step. It’s come at a time when business and consumers are looking for every way they can to reduce their carbon impacts.

Carbon Balanced Paper: High-performance paper for tomorrow’s low-carbon economy.

FSC Certified paper

FSC certified paper is paper that has been harvested in a responsible manner, our customers know that when they print with us, their paper is sourced from FSC forests.

Vegetable inks

Vegetable based inks are better for the environment as they are made from vegetable oil or soybeans. Through sustainable farming, these plants also reduce the amount of C02 in the air, further combating the fight against climate change by reducing air pollution. They are less harmful to both the environment and the staff handling them. Vegetable based inks also help with the recycling process as they are easier to remove from recycled paper and print during the de-inking process of recycling.
