Do you wonder how green your mail is?
How eco friendly your last marketing campaign was or what the carbon foot print of your latest leaflet distribution is?
Do you stop to think about how you could do things differently so that what you do is more environmentally sustainable?
The impact that direct mail has on the environment has been a hot topic for some time….
Here at Sharp Cat we strive to be evergreen in all that we do!
To this end, some of the things we would like to mention are that..
We are part of the ISO 14001:2004 environmental quality system. This means that we aim to continually improve our environmental performance – better efficiency, less waste, more recycling.
We use FSC and PEFC accredited, sustainable papers and card stocks for printing and Royal Mail Sustainable® Advertising Mail products.
FSC-The Forest Stewardship Council is an international non-profit, multi-stakeholder organization established in 1993 to promote responsible management of the world’s forests
PEFC- Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification- seeks to promote forest management through forest certification at both local and global levels.
These organisations have a common goal to reduce environmental impact, increase recycling and safeguard world resources.
At Sharp Cat we use data update options that save wasted print and post. Digital personalisation options reduce short-run surplus waste whenever appropriate too.
And……everything that can be recycled is: Toner and inks, IT hardware, worn card, paper, envelopes, pallets, pallet wrap, elastic bands, box cartons, teabags – whatever we can think of!
Our electricity supply is partially from green power and we power down all our equipment when it’s not being used.
Finally…………we love seeing things grow so a new forest tree is planted with each and every mailing!
