Knightsbridge – one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of wiring devices, accessories and lighting – is demonstrating it is committed to a brighter future with a move to sustainable packaging that is both 100% recyclable and made from 100% recycled materials.
In the case of cardboard boxes, the company has teamed up with the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) to ensure its packaging comes from wholly recycled sources and is certified as such – look out for the FSC logo on these new materials. Where products were previously sold in plastic ‘clamshells’, these will now be sold in recyclable and biodegradable polybags.
The company also tasked its in-house recycling team to see what use could be made of materials received that would ordinarily go to waste. Its latest bright idea is converting incoming cardboard into ‘stuffers’ – the crinkle-cut packing that secures products within their outer cartons.
