Environmental Delivery Option
For non-urgent items, add the product code ENVIRO to your order. We will then deliver your order the next time we are in your area, meaning that as well as saving fuel (and passing the cost savings on to you), your helping to save the planet too.
We use and recommend recycled or environmentally accredited paper, and our customer service team can advise the most eco-friendly papers to suit your requirements.
To maintain quality in your documents FSC and PEFC papers are made from virgin pulp but from managed forestry schemes. FSC is the Forest Stewardship Council which is founded on inclusive and shared responsibility for setting high social, environmental and economic standards for forest management.
Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) accesses national forestry schemes and verifies that they meet minimum environmental and sustainable criteria.
Other accreditations usually associated with 100% recycled papers are Nordic Swan and Greenpeace.
We not only use the environmentally accredited papers, but all internal documents are printed on the reverse of previous documents. All paper waste is shredded and recycled.
During the last 10 years we have seen an increase in the number of compatible toner cartridges being supplied to our customers. These range from recycled cartridges which may not always return value for money as the most important working part of the toner is the drum. With cheap recycled toner cartridges the drum is rarely changed and therefore the cartridge packs up before the true life has been reached.
Call us to ask for recommendations for quality compatable cartridges.
Excel offer a toner collection and recycling service to our customers. When placing an order, simply inform us of how many cartridges you have and we can collect your used cartridges for recycling.
There are many other aspects that take the environment as a primary decision maker. Structuring the company to allow home-working is one. We know there is more we can do and we are making changes where we can.
