Our Recycling Pledge
We've Gone Plastic Free!
We understand that when you buy something online you don’t have much control over how it will be packaged and sent to you. We’ve all seen and heard stories of items being delivered in boxes much bigger than needed and filled to the brim with unnecessary plastic packaging.
We’re making big changes to reduce our, your, and our suppliers’ impact on the environment.
There isn’t any bubblewrap in our warehouse. To make sure your deliveries reach you in perfect condition we use cardboard wrap. This is made by shredding cardboard boxes that we receive in deliveries to be reused as packaging in your orders.
Before getting shipped off with our courier, everything is put in either a recyclable Jiffy Green padded envelope or one of our post boxes made from 70% recycled material. Sealed with paper tape, your order is then heading out the door on its way to you!
Recycling Your Old Electricals
Recycle your electrical and electronic devices free at your local recycling centre. To find your nearest centre, visit the Recycle More website and type in your postcode.
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s fastest growing type of waste.
Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
We’re proud to support your local authority in providing local recycling facilities for electrical equipment.
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with this symbol) in your bin.
What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items.
How are we helping?
In the UK, distributors including retailers must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. As a responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed on us by financially supporting the national network of WEEE recycling centres established by local authorities. This is achieved through membership of the national Distributor Take-back scheme (DTS).
