Environmental Information

Environmental Information

As your business supplies provider we recognise the requirement to adopt practices that enable you to source products which are manufactured by methods that are less harmful to the world’s resources.
To help you make informed decisions regarding the products you purchase, we have used symbols throughout our 2017 catalogue to enable you to recognise those products which are deemed to be less harmful to the environment or are produced in accordance with Fairtrade.

Recycled Content

The mobius loop logo indicates that an element of the material contained within the product is recycled. We display this logo in our catalogue when a product is 60 percent or higher.
Our 2017 catalogue is printed on 51gsm UPM Cote paper produced in Scotland. It is elemental chlorine free. We are working to ensure that all the paper is produced withou the use of chlorine and is sourced from well managed forests.
The paper in our 2017 catalogue can be recycled, for use in newspapers and packaging – please, when finished with our catalogue, dispose of it at your local paper collection point. The paper is also biodegradable as compost or can be incinerated to produce energy.

Fairtrade Mark

The Fairtrade Mark is an important step towards a fairer deal for products in developing countries. The Fairtrade Mark guarantees producers a price that covers production, allows for investment in the community and creates a more sustainable way of life.
