It's not (always) easy being green...but we need to try!

Updated: May 20

As prominently featured in the news and the internet; choosing a more sustainable way to live /eat/breathe, is key to our future. We won't use this blog to bark on about it, but we want to focus this month on our ongoing efforts as a company to help fix the future! We are the UK's largest handler of plasterboard and gypsum waste and we are proud that 100% of all plasterboard waste collected is recycled. As a business it is important to us to continue our green practices in our daily office lives too!

We are paperless


Like most businesses in this era, we are proud to be an (almost) paperless office. Invoices, receipts, statements etc., are all electronic and sent to our customers by email. We also ask our suppliers to invoice us electronically to keep post to a minimum. Any small amounts of paperwork we do receive is recycled.


Green commuting


We chose an office location central to our homes to save the use of cars and so we can pop in and out when we need to, without time stuck in traffic. All members of staff live close to the office and walk or bike into work! A morning walk into work enjoying the beautiful Malvern hills is a great way to start the day!


...and the rest


We turn off any office equipment not in use, we try to keep all our electrics up to date and PAT tested to ensure they are running as energy efficient as possible. Old computers and printers are also recycled correctly.


As a wise green frog once said: "It's not easy being green", but as a responsible business, we try and make a difference.
