Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plansSustainability plays a very important role in our company's plans. Sunlover are very committed to good environmental practice. We are aware that our actions now have a direct impact on future generations and so we continuously strive to ensure we are doing all we can to be environmentally sound.Sustainability initiativesWe recycle all our waste cardboard on site to produce materials we can use as packaging. We also take cardboard from other companies around us and recycle this as well.Pledges for the yearWe are constantly looking at ways to become more sustainable. This year we have moved to a new warehouse and will be focussing our attention on making it as energy efficient as possible. We are looking to install solar panels in order to move onto a renewable energy source.Sustainable ProductsRecycled Glass Bowls on WoodThe wood itself comes from off-cuts of the furniture trade that, in former times, used to be destroyed. The glass is made from recycled glass too, meaning that the whole product comes from waste materials.Bamboo ChimesWe have a wide range of chimes that are made from bamboo. Bamboo is naturally very fast growing which makes it such a highly sustainable source of material.Wooden Soap DishesOur wooden soap dishes have been designed to be used alongside our range of hand made soaps. The combination of both helps eliminate the use of single-use plastic soap dispensers.AT THE FAIRSocial equity at your companyWe are an accredited Fair Trade company.
