Green Solutions

Packaging – Our reusable packaging allows customers to

receive deliveries in a reusable and recyclable container –

minimising cardboard waste.

Eco Delivery Schedules – Whilst it is the norm in the UK

stationery market to offer next day delivery, feedback tells us

customers do not always want 5 deliveries a week. For those customers, we offer Eco Delivery Schedules of 1, 2 or 3 days per week. Next day delivery of course available on request.

 

Environmental Products – The UKOS directory includes many products with sustainable credentials, including an extensive guide to choosing paper.

Recycling Services – Paper / Plastics / Toners / Glass /

Confidential Waste can all be collected from your offices at the

same time we deliver your stationery products, saving both

money and delivery emissions.

allows for paperless transactions and a reduction in paper

catalogues.
