Guiding Principles for our Office and Warehouse
Using the same item more than once and extending the useful life of products and equipment via appropriate maintenance, ensure all products are durable, have a long service life and are easy to maintain and upgrade - for example our service to find a new home for any classic furniture purchased from us over the years is available to all our clients.
Purchases shall only be made when required and of the amount needed, purchases that reduce the use of materials/resources will be favoured - for example, products that have minimal packaging or printers that print double sided. We also encourage our clients to purchase modern furniture classics that will last over several. generations rather than a few years.
Purchase products that are recycled or re-manufactured or contain recycled materials or that can be recycled or re-manufactured.
