North East furniture company set to extend plastic recycling
A Consett furniture company is set to use 100 per cent recycled plastic for its packaging.
Furniture Clinic, has reduced its use of virgin plastic by 80 per cent as part of its eco-drive to minimise its plastic packaging footprint.
From today, the County Durham based business will switch plastic bottles across its own patented range of 100 specialist products to 100 per cent recycled plastic (rPET), saving an estimated 30,000kg of virgin plastic from landfill each year.
Furthermore, the introduction of cardboard packaging and paper packing, instead of plastic, will continue its sustainability drive.
Furniture Clinic’s managing director, Ben Staerck, said: “As a restoration business, sustainability is deeply embedded in our DNA and we constantly strive to deliver the highest quality yet eco-friendly solutions for our customers and partners.
“Today’s news is an important milestone in our circularity quest and we’re proud to be doing what’s right to help preserve our planet for generations to come.”
Furniture Clinic has secured an ISO 9001 accreditation2 in 2020, recognising its progress in reducing waste and increasing efficiency
The company is now focused on developing its Environmental Management plan to become ISO 4001 certified within the next year.
