Wastage is reduced by reusing and recycling as much as possible, both in the office and the workshops.
All paper correspondence is printed onto recycled FSC certified paper. Most of the materials used are sourced locally, not only to promote traditional skills but also to reduce the transport of materials to manufacture.
