Go Plastic Free With Help From Our New Promotion!

Going plastic free is the initiative that many companies have started adopting as we are now becoming more aware of the damaging effects plastic has on the environment.

A report for WWF calculated that total plastic waste generation in the UK could increase to around 6.3 million tonnes by 2030. (Source: Parliament UK). This statistic is on the UK alone! The world has another 194 countries with more also contributing to plastic waste.

That’s a lot of plastic! And it has to go somewhere. Sadly a lot of this plastic ends up in our oceans and the effects are devastating. The government estimates that the total plastic in our oceans has hit 150 million tonnes (Source: Parliament UK). The exact figure is indeterminate. This figure increases each year with an estimated 12 million tonnes entering the ocean (Source: Greenpeace).

The time for change is now!

We aren’t just doing right by the ocean but for our and your customers by helping them go plastic free!

So our contribution is for every Eco-friendly* item ordered by the 30th of September 2019, we will make a donation worth 2% of the total order value to the Marine Conservation Society.

‘The Marine Conservation Society is the UK’s leading charity for the protection of our seas, shores and wildlife. For over thirty years MCS has been the voice for the sea for all the fascinating creatures that live beneath the waves, for our breath-taking coastal environment, for all those who make a sustainable living from the sea and for everyone who simply enjoys visiting the beach and our glorious coastline.’ (Source: The Marine Conservation Society)
