There is only one Planet Earth, and at Dexam we recognise our responsibility towards urgently helping make.
There is only one Planet Earth, and at Dexam we recognise our responsibility towards making it more sustainable. As a commercial organisation we have a duty to work actively towards reducing our environmental impact. Whilst we know we can never be perfect, we want to do our best, and have made a firm commitment.
We’re doing this by:
We’ve cut down on the amount of packaging used in our products. We’re also reducing our plastic volume by seeking alternatives.
For example, we use biodegradable and compostable Eco-Chips, made from GM free sustainable raw materials using a low energy process. They dissolve under running water or can be added to your compost heap to break down naturally. We’ve also introduced compostable corn starch bags for some of our textiles and paper tape has replaced plastic tape.
We reuse packaging and cardboard when sending out goods to our customers. They may not look as pretty, but we’re saving the world one box at a time!
Where it’s not possible to eradicate plastic altogether, we’re incorporating 30% recycled content to reduce the use of virgin plastic.
Packaging airbags in trade orders contain 50% recycled content and are 100% recyclable. All paper (including tissue paper) and card used must be from sustainable sources (FSC or PEFC) or contain greater than 70% recycled content. So far in 2022 we’ve managed to achieve this across 70% of our product range. We’re also committed to recycling any electrical equipment and sourcing an environmentally friendly way to recycle these items. To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.
