BIDBI for World Environment Day:  The ways, we keep our impact on the environment to a minimum.  

 

It’s World Environment Day, and we are celebrating mother nature, by going through our policies and practices that have been into place to keep our impact on the environment to the minimum.  

 

Our Environmental Story 

“BIDBI was founded with the initiative to develop an eco-friendly business solution to an international, environmental problem.” 

Back in 2007, the world was waking up to the scourge of plastic bags, although still in its infancy BIDBI dedicated itself to educate and change people’s habits on their use of the plastic bag. 

By changing businesses’ habits, consumers’ habits similarly change. Since then we have provided an environmentally friendly and ethical marketing solution for businesses, charities and community organisations across the globe. 

From our eco-print factory in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, we continually aim at reducing our environmental impact, throughout our whole supply chain. Furthermore, this process undergoes rigorous checks by external auditors to ensure our impact on the environment remains as low as possible.   

With the continuing dependence on fast fashion and plastic packaging, BIDBI will continually aim to educate and encourage businesses to adopt environmentally friendly working practices and lifestyles.

The Policies: Environmental Standpoint At BIDBI We Agree To...  

Behave as ambassadors to ensure our environmental objectives and targets are achieved. We operate with mindfulness and awareness of both the environmental and ethical impact our business has on the world and its natural resources. 

Raise awareness, encourage participation and train employees in environmental best practice by maintaining awareness of legislative changes, update via the Ethical Trading Initiative and other applicable governing bodies. 

Ensure that we work closely with our suppliers to ensure they too can demonstrate good environmental management. 

Seek to reduce the environmental impacts of our bags by transporting them to the factory using sustainable transport options and consolidating orders. 

Minimise the use of raw materials in the factory and office. 

As a Zero Waste to Landfill business we prioritise the reduction of waste, followed by re-use, recycling and where there is no alternative, energy recovery. 

Encourage employees to use sustainable transport options, on both their commute and any business travel. 

Make it a central aim of our market strategy to let our customers know the environmental benefits of our products. 

Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst its customers and suppliers.  

Display our Environmental Policy at work and make it available on our website 

 

 

Conclusion  

We have incorporated sustainable measures into our daily activities and work processes so that our business success is not comprised by practices that harm the environment. Through measurement and examination of the impact of our own activities, we seek to eliminate or reduce pollution on a continual basis and meet relevant environmental legislation. We made a promise to mother nature, and we plan on to keep it that way! #GoGreen
