One of the lesser known reasons to switch from single use plastics and indeed choosing a local supplier is to help reduce our carbon footprint.
Choosing Harfield’s range of reusable and 100% recyclable polycarbonate tableware will help you reduce your carbon footprint for tableware.
The benefit to your carbon footprint is as follows:
- You are using 100% recyclable tableware that is virtually unbreakable. Therefore, the product lasts much longer than standard crockery or melamine and also at the end of its life it can be recycled into other products. We offer a free recycling service for our products. Please call us for more details.
- Harfield’s polycarbonate tableware is manufactured here in the UK to UK and European standards. Therefore, the factories are more environmentally friendly than some in the Far East and the transport miles from factory to end user are much much lower. None of our products are made in the Far East with the associated pollution caused by global shipping. Buying Harfield products really will make a huge difference to your carbon footprint.
- All our polycarbonate raw materials and packaging are sourced from Europe. Unfortunately there isn’t a polycarbonate manufacturing plant in the UK, but we source only from Europe for our polycarbonate. This also means that there are much lower transport miles and again the products are made in European factories to European standards. A huge impact on the carbon footprint for us all.
Buying Harfield polycarbonate tableware will save you money and help reduce your impact on the environment and help to reduce your carbon footprint.
