Recycling

As part of our commitment towards sustainable development we proactively seek to employ new, more sustainable technologies and processes to minimise our impact on the environment.

This includes making relevant information available on packaging materials so that people can make informed decisions for recycling and reducing landfill of our product packaging where possible.
