Here at A Loving Tribute, we work hard to ensure that our business operations and products are as environmentally friendly as possible. Reducing our impact on the environment is as ever an extremely important task and one that we as a company take very seriously.
Trends change as does scientific knowledge and this is an ever-evolving process that we will always try to adapt and keep up to date with. As much of the materials that we purchase is FSC.
Our Graylands estate site has solar panels installed, which generate significant amounts of power for the estate and further reduces our overall CO2 footprint.
We have also developed our own logo to emphasise our commitment which we are more than proud to share should any partners wish to use this for their own websites.
If you would like more information on this, please do get in touch.
FSC – What is it?
FSC is a well recognised logo these days and nearly all of the materials we purchase are either FSC or PEFC accredited.
FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council. It is a non-profit organisation that is dedicated to promoting responsible forestry. FSC certifies forests all over the world to ensure they meet the highest environmental and social standards. Forests are managed in a specific way that ensures not just the forest is well managed but also that the local people’s rights are met and protected too.
Recycling and Shredding.
As part of our continued environmental responsibilities, as much of our waste is recycled, from printed make ready sheets, cardboard packaging, toner and ink cartridges, even our used coffee pods are recycled now using a dedicated service provider.
Anything that is data driven that needs to be thrown away is shredded by a confidential shredding company, which completes the whole process whilst on site and issues us with a certificate of destruction. This shredded material is then taken away for recycling too!
There are a lot of companies out there at the moment making false claims that by not printing you are saving a tree or that paper usage is bad for the environment and even having something emailed is greener. This is called Greenwashing. All of these claims are completely false and not backed up by clear evidence.
Two Sides was created to promote the sustainability of the graphic communications supply chain and dispel the common environmental misconceptions surrounding the print and paper industry.
