We strongly believe that it is everyone’s responsibility to take steps to protect the environment and reduce our carbon footprints, wherever possible.
We’re committed to improving our company’s green credentials, whether that’s little things – like recycling our office rubbish and switching unnecessary lights off – to bigger industry-specific actions.
Although our older collections were printed in factories that comply with stringent EU regulations around responsible waste disposal, water recycling, and environmentally friendly inks, when it came to The Islands Collection – and all future collections – we wanted to go one step further…
We have looked at each step of the print process in order to identify how we can reduce our impact on the environment, which means that we:
– only use substrates from FSC-certified sources
– only print in eco-friendly water-based inks
– use packaging that is either biodegradable and/or recyclable
– print on-demand, using our high quality in-house digital printer, to minimise wastage
Finally, and very importantly, for every roll of wallpaper purchased from The Islands Collection (and future collections), Elizabeth Ockford Ltd will plant a tree in collaboration with the One Tree Planted initiative.
