Our Environmental Statement

"In 2018, we made a commitment to be a better business, for the planet, our community and our staff. 

Since then, we have made huge changes in our business, from sourcing products, delivery to your door, and everything in between. In 2022, we plan to share more of our behind-the-scenes progress, including our carbon reduction programs and targets.

We're constantly looking for new ways to reduce our environmental impact. We really appreciate your ideas and feedback, so please get in touch if you have any suggestions. Together we can have a positive impact."
