As one of the most pre-eminent greetings cards suppliers, here at Loxleys we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and we are committed to the protection of the environment, the prevention of pollution, legal compliance and to the continuous improvement of our environmental performance.
Committed to the care of the environment
Our accreditations demonstrate that all who work at Loxleys are committed to the care of the environment and to the prevention of pollution whilst systems have been put in place to minimise waste, promote recycling, reduce energy consumption, reduce harmful emissions and where possible to work with suppliers who have sound environmental policies.
Loxleys also offer a range of FSC certified boards for use in greeting card manufacture.
The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is part of an international organisation bringing together forest owners, timber processors, and wood product manufacturers and users to ensure long term timber supplies while protecting the environment and the lives of forest-dependent peoples. More than 100 million hectares of forest are now managed to FSC® standards in some 79 countries around the world. For more information about FSC®, visit the website here.
FSC Chain of Custody is the means by which a timber product, such as a greeting card, can be traced back to a particular forest; By using an FSC certified printer such as Loxleys, if an FSC certified board is used the cards can be printed with an FSC logo promoting the fact that the product is produced using material from an FSC certified source.
Working towards a circular economy is at the forefront of our business, that’s why we’ve teamed up with the BPIF and Prismm to become a Zero-Foil-2-Landfill partner. As part of our continued, ongoing effort in our expanding zero-waste-to-landfill scheme, we have been an active member of the Zero-Foil-2-Landfill scheme since October 2019, and we are extremely proud to have diverted over 1,700 tonnes of foil waste from landfill during that time.
Utilised as a direct substitute for coal, the foil waste collected from Loxleys site, is processed into an alternative fuel (SRF – solid recovered fuel) and supplied to cement kilns all over the UK. Considering our impact on the environment is at the forefront of every next step we take as a business, fueling other areas of the UK’s energy infrastructure feeds into our aim of creating a circular recycling loop for all elements of our production processes, and it’s great to be able to show a clear and transparent route of recycling for our foil waste.
