We recycle approximately 12,000 tonnes of ceramic waste from our production processes...
12,000 tonnes is enough produce 32 million dinner plates or 72 million teacups
... and is equivalent to the total annual house-hold waste of 23,500 people.
Every year we purchase around 390 tonnes of cardboard packaging, all of which is produced using 100% recycled and recyclable materials. This means that we stop approximately 2,600m3 of landfill space from being filled by virgin cardboard materials.
Each one of our product boxes contains 100% recycled and recyclable cardboard materials.
Annually we save approximately 50 million kWh through our in-house energy saving initiatives...
50 million kWh is enough energy to boil water in over 24 million kettles
... or provide enough electrical power to the average television set for 17,000 years.
In our body preparation areas, we re-use around 22,000m3 of water per year...
22,000m3 of water is enough to flush a single toilet over 3.5 million times
... or fill approximately 280,000 bath tubs or around eight olympic sized swimming pools.
We purchase second-hand wooden pallets and also repair damaged pallets wherever possible. Annually this saves around 1,500 tonnes of virgin timber.
1,500 tonnes of virgin timber is approximately enough to save 12,000 trees from being cut down each year.
Through changes to our manufacturing operations we save around 1,700 tonnes of CO2 per year...
1,700 tonnes of CO2 is the equivalent to travelling 6.5 million miles in a petrol car
... or fly a Boeing 747 from London to Glasgow approximately 70 times.
