Our Commitment to a Greener Future: Embracing Sustainability

In today's world, environmental responsibility is not just a buzzword; it's a necessity. As a responsible and forward-thinking business, we understand the importance of minimizing our environmental footprint and contributing to a greener future. In this blog post, we are proud to share our environmental stance and the steps we have taken to integrate sustainability into our operations.

  1. Recycling at the Core

One of the cornerstones of our environmental commitment is our dedication to recycling. We are proud to collaborate with a local business that provides us with recycled tubes for our products. By choosing recycled materials, we reduce the demand for new resources and help divert waste from landfills. This partnership not only supports our local economy but also exemplifies our commitment to sustainable sourcing.

  1. Harnessing Solar Power

To power our office located in Southern Scotland, we have installed a 2.4-kilowatt solar panel system. This investment in renewable energy not only reduces our reliance on non-renewable energy sources but also significantly cuts our carbon emissions.

Estimated CO2 Savings:

  • Our solar panel system generates approximately 2,880 to 4,320 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per year in Southern Scotland, taking into account regional weather conditions and latitude.
  • The average carbon intensity for grid electricity in the UK is around 0.233 kg CO2/kWh.

By using these estimates, our 2.4-kilowatt solar panel system is estimated to save approximately 0.67 metric tons of CO2 emissions each year. This remarkable reduction in carbon emissions reflects our commitment to a cleaner environment and a sustainable future.

  1. Paper-Based Application Tape

In an effort to reduce plastic waste, we have made a conscious switch from plastic application tape to paper-based alternatives. Our commitment to using paper-based materials not only aligns with our eco-friendly principles but also ensures that we are doing our part to minimize plastic pollution in our environment. We believe that every small change matters when it comes to protecting our planet.

  1. Embracing Resource Efficiency

Waste is a significant concern in many industries. At our business, we've taken a proactive approach to minimize waste by utilizing all our offcuts effectively. Rather than discarding them as scrap, we find creative ways to repurpose these materials within our operations. Additionally, we extend our efforts to support local craft groups by offering them our offcuts for their projects, fostering a sense of community and sustainable practices.


Our commitment to the environment goes beyond just words. We have taken concrete steps to integrate sustainability into every aspect of our business, from sourcing recycled materials to harnessing renewable energy and reducing plastic waste. Our dedication to a greener future, as evidenced by the estimated 0.67 metric tons of CO2 emissions saved annually, reflects our responsibility towards the planet and our desire to inspire others to follow suit.

As we continue to evolve, our environmental stance remains unwavering. We are proud to lead by example and invite our customers, partners, and the community to join us in our journey towards a more sustainable and eco-friendly future. Together, we can make a difference and leave a positive impact on our environment for generations to come.
