£4000 donated through sustainable internal hoarding
Since we started our sustainability campaign back in April, we’re delighted to be able to say that we’ve already donated a total of £4000 to charities across the UK.
Additionally, as part of our sustainability campaign, over 100 tonnes of uPVC hoarding panels have been recycled and remanufactured into new panels, as well as other usable plastic items.
The charities we have supported so far include:
The Marine Conservation Society (MCS), the UK’s only dedicated marine charity working solely to secure healthy seas and shorelines.
Katharine House Hospice who provide a range of free services which offer holistic care and support for people with advanced life-limited conditions (including Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease, end-stage Renal failure and cancer) across mid-Staffordshire.
Rethink Mental Illness who work tirelessly to transform the lives of everyone severely affected by mental illness, and how our nation approaches mental illness. They provide over 200 services, 140 local support groups and run campaigns that bring about real change.
CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) who are leading a movement against suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. They facilitate supportive spaces in workplaces, universities, pubs, clubs and prisons across the country, so people can share experiences and get help before they reach the point of crisis.
Shooting Star Children’s Hospices, a leading children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families.
If you’re not familiar with our sustainability promise, let us explain…
Reducing waste is something many companies are looking to do, especially within construction projects. Which is why we aim to follow guidelines on circular economy and the use of sustainable materials in construction.
Our Hoardfast uPVC internal hoarding product is manufactured from up to 85% recycled plastic and is reusable across multiple projects or phased project work. At the end of the panels’ usable life, the panels are crushed down and used to manufacture new panels and other plastic items.
The funds generated from the sale of these recycled panels is donated to the MCS and numerous other charities throughout the UK.
