Doing our bit
We are doing our bit for the environment....
Slaters provide free carrier bags where local legislation allows. Our bags are recyclable and we strongly encourage customers to reuse and recycle them at the end of their useful life.
We ask our suppliers to reduce the amount of packaging they use and all waste at our warehouse is recycled.
Cardboard boxes and wooden pallets used in our warehouse are reused and then recycled and we have recycling bins for plastics and cardboard.
We have begun a program of installing low energy fittings and air conditioning units in our stores and distribution centre in a effort to reduce our carbon footprint.
All our offices recycle paper and strongly encourage employees not to print documents unnecessarily. We recycle all ink and printer cartridges.
Now you can do yours.....
