Let's do this together
In our most active year yet, we rose to the challenge of a global pandemic by supporting more than 100 people into education, training, and new jobs. We gave out more than 2,500 reusable face coverings to rough sleepers, created 29 part-time jobs and supported seven hostels. We were also active in care homes, giving away 523 dementia dolls to sufferers separated from their families and 1,071 PPE packs to care homes across the country. While we were busy, we were still careful to look after our planet too. We provided recycling points for PPE, removed 67,729 pieces of single use plastic, planted 864 trees, delivered 22,766 carbon-neutral packages and removed 172 tonnes of CO2.
At the board meeting on the 23rd of May, the decision was made to become a cooperative and give the company to the workforce, customers and stakeholders.
EDM 1221 is an early day motion which called on the government to use the opportunity of the credit crunch to build a green manufacturing economy. We drafted the motion and worked with the late Malcolm Wicks and Caroline Lucas to get it discussed in Parliament.
We committed to remove all PVC products from our catalogue and to look at single-use plastic and supply recyclable and reusable alternatives.
Bruce published his first white paper on paper sustainability. This was the first piece of independently funded research on the subject written for buyers by us and contained meta-analysis of work that had been done by paper mills, academic sources and environmentalists. It marked the beginning of a tradition we continue to this day: putting independent cutting edge research into the hands of buyers to help them make informed choices. It was also the moment we became known as the experts’ expert source of advice.
Following a review and independent audit, Bruce and Yasmin achieved carbon neutrality – the first stationery company to achieve it.
