The Government estimates that UK households and businesses use around 11 million tonnes of packaging each year (National Audit Office). Manufacturers are taking action and are striving towards sourcing environmentally friendly materials and packaging.
Here at Glossop Cartons we take our environmental responsibility seriously and are committed to operating in a responsible and sustainable manner to help to protect the environment.
We believe that all employees, clients and suppliers share a role in our environmental objective and we work to encourage them to continuously review and minimise their impact on the environment.
To help reduce our impact on the current landfill crisis, we are proud to be actively involved in manufacturing products that are recyclable, and in most cases, bio-degradable. Our primary raw material, Carton Board, is sourced from mills which adopt a 3:1 re-planting programme and farmed from accredited, managed and sustainable forests.
We also promote the use of environmentally friendly water-based coatings for skin and blister boards and work closely with our clients and suppliers to reduce levels of waste and encourage the reuse and recycling of materials.
