UAP Are Supporting National Recycling Week 2019
Published on 23 September, 2019Latest News
National Recycling Week runs this year from the 23rd to the 29th of September, a UK initiative to encourage the public to up their recycling game and do their bit for the environment.
‘Recycle Week 2019 will be full of action asking people to rinse, crush, squash, sort and separate. In the bathroom, the kitchen, the office and the great outdoors. Getting them to do something powerful and radical that will really make a difference.’
National Recycling Week has the support of 80 business partners including John Lewis, Quorn, Aldi, and Tesco.
UAP is committed to supporting the environment, and we always seek to find environmentally-friendly business solutions. We take part in a variety of eco initiatives, such as Plant a Tree Today, having officially offset all emissions and funded the planting of over 56,000 trees.
We have taken the initiative to add low energy features to all our buildings such as solar panels, and we are on the way to becoming grid-neutral.
We’re committed to recycling and re-using our packaging – something we started doing at the very beginning.
We’ve also taken steps to increase our recycling in product development, using a 3devo machine to recycle and re-use material for 3D printing. Additionally, all scrap material is collected and repurposed or carefully recycled and used in our products where possible.
