Our vision is to create a cabinetry manufacturing business that is totally sustainable with no waste going to landfill and powered fully by solar energy. Even our food scraps are being used for compost in the factory garden!
As at the start of 2020, we are running the business off 94% solar power and send approx 40% of our offcuts back to the manufacturer to be re-purposed and recycled into new particle board. We also recycle 100% of our soft plastics and cardboard waste diverting this away from landfill to be re-purposed and re-used. We’ve replaced all lighting with energy efficient LED lighting.
With these business changes and investments we are saving the equivalent of 22,057 litres of petrol per year / 25,068 kg of coal per year / planting 1,328 trees per year and this is just the beginning!
Our goal for 2020 – 2021 is to find a solution to recycling MDF board or use a different substrate which can be recycled safely (we believe this is an industry wide issue because it isn’t currently able to be recycled safely) and to find a cost efficient solution to change our fleet from petrol/gas to electricity. Stay tuned for progress updates on our sustainability mission during 2020.
