In an effort to minimise and offset our environmental impact as much as possible, we pledge that all of our standard parcels packaging will be 100% plastic free by 2022!
In 2019, we announced the launch of Our Green Promise campaign, championing three main target areas: what we do, what we sell and what we give back. With the unveiling of our Plastic-Free Packaging project, we are kick starting Phase II of Our Green Promise.
So, what do we do?
Here at Harrison, we are now packing all orders in brand new packaging made from 100% recycled cardboard which is 100% recyclable!
By also eliminating tape and plastic document wallets from our standard packages, we are already 75% plastic free and well on the way to achieving our goal of phasing out plastic packaging completely.
Whilst many businesses like ours are also working towards environmentally-friendly packaging, it is still one of the leading causes of plastic pollution, impacting even the deepest oceans. Did you know that, globally, humans manufacture:
just under 300 million tonnes of plastic a year – that is equivalent to the weight of the entire adult population of the planet’.
We understand that, because of this, consumer expectations around packaging are evolving rapidly which is why we are changing the way we do things too.
We are determined to do everything we can to support the environment, so by introducing this circular packaging model into our strategy we are already carving the way towards a more sustainable future to help shape a world without waste.
