Going green

Going Green

Going green is very important to us. We have implemented a lot of new measures to reduce our carbon foot print over the last few years and, while there is still a lot to do, we are proud of the process we have made so far. Since 2017 we have managed to reduce our contribution to landfill by about 80%. We are therefore recycling more all the time. Our packaging is also recyclable. We try as much as possible to access wood sourced sustainably and have joined the growing effort to plant more trees to offset more challenging carbon and waste issues.
