Environmental Policy

Putnams environmental policy uk

We are committed to reducing the impact our business has on the environment. We do not claim to be perfect, the environment is important to us and we are trying to improve the ways in which we operate to reduce our impact.

  • We have teamed up with Zero to landfill (DCW) to ensure that all the waste generated by our factory is either recycled or used to generate electricity to nearby homes and businesses.
  • We are committed to planting a tree for every order on our website over £60. To see our virtual forest click here. To find out more about this click here. We are also now planting additional trees for every product and site review (via Reviews.io).
  • We promote circular economy. Our products are designed to last for years not months, we guarantee it (check individual product pages for guarantee lengths). Our products are modular mostly consisting of a cover and a filling. If outside of our guarantee one part fails we can provide a replacement (cost applies). 
  • Every product is handmade for you, assuring the best possible quality and avoiding overproduction.
  • All foam off-cuts produced by us are also recycled. They are bonded together to produce chip foam. Chip foam is an eco-foam alternative to we also supply cut to size
  • We manufacture locally and source locally where possible to reduce carbon emissions associated with transport.
  • We are actively working to reduce the amount of plastic we use within our factory.
  • We are also switching to biodegradable packaging options to further reduce plastic usage.
  • We continually update product pages and descriptions to reduce emissions from downstream shipping and returns.
  • We regularly undertake litter picks around our site and the larger area collecting plastic and other waste that has blown into the site and into the surrounding forest, river and hedges.
  • Our website is carbon neutral meaning you can browse our online store guilt-free and trees will automatically be planted to compensate for associated CO2 usage.
  • We are also trying to work with our suppliers to encourage them to improve their environmental credentials and internally, source greener supplies where possible. i.e recycled paper in our office, paper packaging tape and eco cleaning products within our factory.
