Green Steps… The Challenge Continues…
At the beginning of the year we started our year campaign to make one small change every month to make green steps & reduce our impact on the environment.
We kicked off with a new cardboard shredder in January, reducing the amount of plastic bubble we use in our packaging. Here’s how the last few months have shaped up…
In February we focused on embedding the habit of switching off all the lights when the rooms is not in use. They will also be ensuring that all lighting throughout the offices and warehouse has also been upgraded to super low energy LED bulbs.
Buying our office coffee and hot chocolate supplies from the local zero waste shop. They use refillable, reusable and recycled containers to reduce plastic use and sell products loose and by weight meaning you don’t have to buy more than you really need. If you would like to find out more about Refill Your Boots , you can visit their Facebook page here.
This month it’s swapping more of our packaging to renewable and biodegradable materials. Once your orders leave our warehouse, your package in in the hands of the delivery gods. Whilst we have chosen couriers that have the best reputation we still like to remind them that what’s contained inside is fragile – roll in our fragile tape. Traditionally we have used the standard plastic tape, however as part of our move towards sustainability we have now managed to source a paper version.
Small steps, but still a step forward.
This month we have made the decision to no longer produce a paper catalogue to help reduce our impact on the environment.
You are still able to download a copy here – https://www.mutneys.com/mutneys-catalogue-2020/ although all our update pricing and products are available on our website
Bee Bombs! We all now how important bees are to our eco-system and this month we want to do our bit to support them. We’ll be buying everyone in the team their own seed bomb to set off in their garden. Each bomb is jam packed with super pollinator seeds to help sow as many wildflowers as possible supporting the bee population.
