Environmental Information

The so-called Blue Planet effect has had an extraordinary impact on our opinion about the use of plastics and other unsustainable products.

Environmentally Friendly Products

Environmental Sustainability

There has been a huge surge of interest in bans on single-use plastics and the use of recycled products.

We have always sold environmentally friendly products and have over 3,000 products in our ‘Going Green’ range. In fact, many of our best selling products are already made from recycled materials, such as our Q-Connect lever arch files, folders and dividers.

As a supplier of office stationery and equipment we try and source products that are both high quality and sustainable. We understand that more and more people are actively looking for eco-friendly products which is why we use symbols in our catalogue to make it easy for you to identify them more easily.

We use the recycled logo where the recycled content of a product is 60% or over.

We stock many beverages that are Fairtrade, which means farmers and workers have been treated and paid fairly for their produce and time.
