Jacaranda Carpets is creating products that are better for their clients and for the world!
At Jacaranda Carpets, they recognize that business principles have an impact on the wider environment. As such, they are fine-tuning their practices. Although this is no easy feat, Jacaranda Carpets has created multiple eco-friendly solutions that will not only make their clients happy, but will make the world a better place to live!
1. Recyclable Plastic
As society has become increasingly aware of the dangers of plastic pollution on our planet, Jacaranda Carpets wanted to ensure that their packaging waste did not contribute to this global issue. Therefore, they now wrap all handmade broadloom and rugs, shipped from India, in clear polythene made of LDPE resin 4. This material is recycles easily, and can be made into a wide number of new products. Furthermore, all waste polythene collected from the Jacaranda UK warehouse is baled and sent for recycling instead of being sent to a landfill for incineration.
2. Carbon Neutral Shipping
Since November 2019, Jacaranda Carpets has been in partnership with international courier UPS. This partnership has allowed them to send samples and rugs to the UK and internationally, as certified carbon neutral. According to Jacaranda Carpets, “UPS offers customers the ability to counter balance the carbon dioxide emissions generated by the transport of their packages through carbon offsetting. This means that for every tonne of CO2 a package produces in transportation, an equivalent amount of CO2 is saved by a verified emission reduction project somewhere else in the world.”
3. Renewable Energy
In addition to all of these changes, Jacaranda Carpets UK is proud to announce that they now operate on 100% renewable electricity. This incles their sales office, rug edging department, and their warehouse. In addition, the staff at Jacaranda Carpets has also made the switch to a brand new electric counterbalance forklift which will replace their diesel one.
As the exclusive US distributor of Jacaranda Carpets, we are delighted that they have made big changes in order to minimize their carbon footprint and support clean energy use. Therefore, we look forward to sharing more eco-friendly updates from Jacaranda Carpets in the near future!
