Today is Earth Day, a day established in 1970 with the mission to “diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide”. This year’s theme is Restore our Earth focussing on natural processes, emerging green technologies and innovation that can restore the world’s ecosystems, so we would like to share with you the steps we are taking for a greener future…
At Respond, we are passionate about sustainability and are continuously working on being more environmentally friendly with our packaging and our products. For Earth Day we would like to share with you just some of the ways we are working towards this:
♻️ We are cutting down on the amount of plastic products we produce, such as our pens and our wallets for any sample orders, and instead are switching to using paper, card and other recyclable or bio-degradable materials – if you are a part of our support service you will start to notice these changes!
📦 ✂️ We re-use boxes by shredding them for packaging in your deliveries. This negates the need for other packaging materials, whilst ensuring your supplies are delivered securely and in tact.
📦 ♻️ Any remaining used cardboard that we do not re-use in our warehouses gets sent to be recycled. This means that no cardboard goes to waste and is recycled and re-used.
One of the biggest ways we are working towards being environmentally-friendly is through our printing. All of our booklets, literature and support documents are printed on FSC certified paper from well-managed forests. 🌳 But what does this mean?
The FSC, or Forest Stewardship Council, promote environmentally appropriate and economically viable management of the world’s forests. When you see the FSC logo, you can identify when paper and other materials have been produced from well-managed forests and/or recycled sources, helping to ensure our forests are alive for generations to come.
The FSC logo signifies the use of sustainable paper, without causing any harm to the world’s forests, and it can be recycled. ♻️🌲

We are so proud of the steps we are taking to become more environmentally-friendly, which we hope you will start to recognise as part of our support service.
