Yay, we see you’ve finally stumbled upon the eco-friendly green edition of our C&C Insight Magazine! For the first edition of 2019 we’re thinking ‘New Year, New Eco You’ for all the eco-friendly trends, gossip, tips, tricks and news in the cleaning and catering industry.
With eco-friendly being the world on everyone’s lips last year, what better time to launch a fully eco edition of the magazine!? There are some super simple ideas to go eco that go beyond just switching products and we’ve even included some exclusive behind-the-scenes looks at what the best sustainable companies are doing, that you can do too!
So sit down with a coffee (in a reusable or compostable cup of course) and have a flick through our green edition to find some eco ideas you’re sure to love!
Happy New Year!
The Pattersons’ Team
Now this Christmas mayhem is over for another year, it’s time to wind down and enjoy the New Year! If you’re thinking about a New Year, new GREENER you, look no further!
You probably know Pattersons’ by now but if you don’t, let us introduce ourselves.
OUR GREEN PROMISE
For several years now, we’ve been interested in making eco-friendly choices as show by our ISO 14001 accreditation, our pledge to be Carbon Neutral and our charity work. However, like most businesses, the news that our world needs to act fast to tackle global warming saddened us and encouraged us to take more new steps to be even more eco and that’s when we realised, as a supplier, we can help businesses make eco choices too!
OUR GREEN PRODUCTS
We’ve always aimed to source as many British manufactured products as we possibly can, which is something we’re still proud of today, and in a bid to help others make green choices, we’v expanded our eco ranges and are now proud to offer the full eco-friendly solution that doesn’t compromise on quality or price.
OUR GREEN FUTURE
We have a lot in store for 2019 from launching an eco-cleaning catalogue jam packed full of our new green ranges, to continuing to support our local community with charity events and young employment schemes. Last year, our proudest achievements were raising a fantastic £16,000 for St Peter’s Hospice and donating £7000 worth of old stock to Giving World Online, amongst improving our recycling and reducing plastic. This year, we’d love to match or even beat those achievements if we can!
