At Business Supplies Direct we are committed to building a sustainable future and aim to reduce the impact our business activities have on the environment. That is why we do everything we can to ensure we work in an environmentally friendly and responsible manner.
We have streamlined our operating and delivery systems, with a focus on sustainability and the environment. This has significantly helped us reduced our CO2 emissions and in turn improved our overall carbon footprint.
Business Supplies Direct also has one of the most comprehensive ranges of business supplies products and services in the UK. Which means our customers can buy all their business supplies products and services from one single supplier.
Consolidating suppliers is an efficient and effective way to reduce the number of deliveries you receive and can significantly reduce the amount of packaging and paperwork used, as well as reducing carbon emissions.
We are continually increasing our range of environmentally friendly products and services, to provide our customers with a ‘recycled, eco friendly and sustainable’ alternative. From recycled paper and envelopes to Fairtrade tea and coffee, we supply 1000’s of environmentally friendly products that meet environmental accreditations, such as: Blue Angel, Energy Star, EU Eco-Label, Fairtrade, FSC (Forest Stewardship Council), Nordic Swan, PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) and Rainforest Alliance.
Help us help the environment
Over 2 million non-biodegradable cartridges are thrown away each year in the UK, adding to already overflowing landfill sites.
To assist you in disposing of your cartridges in an efficient environmental manner, and as part of our commitment to help the environment we are offering free cartridge recycle bins to every customer.
Simply place your empty cartridges in these bins and when full, we will collect and recycle them for you free of charge.
Every recycled cartridge helps the world stay green
