We understand no business has all the answers, but there are things we can all do to continually improve.

  Say NO to Landfill

All our office furniture is rescued - to live another day!

How many times have you past by a skip outside a commercial building and been horrified at the quality of
what is being simply thrown away? Perhaps they simply need help to understand what to do with it. That is
why the Southern Sustainability Partnership has joined forces with organisations to ensure workplaces can
easily dispose of items they no longer require - matching it with another that can provide it with a new home!
