Join us on our Sustainable Journey

Our Sustainable Journey

Cherwell is committed and excited to share our passion for giving the Sign and Display market a more sustainable future! We have several key pillars in our sustainable program which includes:

– All offcuts of sheet materials and extrusions are collected and recycled rather than going into landfill
– Electric vehicle fleet with on-site charging and a plan to introduce Electric delivery vehicles target of 2026
– Recycled Packaging and PVC Free packaging wherever possible

Eco Friendly Materials 

We’ve taken painstaking steps to ensure our products are as eco friendly as possible without negatively impacting their performance. Usage of Aluminium in our sign systems means many of the ranges are 100% recyclable, and other ranges are made using recycled materials. We’re actively looking at making our product offering as broad as possible to include eco options to as many ranges as possible. 

Recycling Scheme

We’re proud to be the only UK supplier of cutting and workbench protection mats to offer a recycling scheme which has been formed with our manufacturing partners. This means any Rhino mat can be returned and will be sorted and recycled either into new mats, or new products. We’re hugely proud of this offering to change the dial in mats ending their life in landfill.

To learn more about our Return for Recycling program or to book in the return of your mat for recycling, please use the Contact Us page.

Recycled Packaging and PVC Free packaging

This is something we have been working on for a number of years and passionate to make the difference in how we dispatch our goods. We despatch in Cardboard boxes that can be recycled, or better still some of the packaging used is also made from recycled boxes

In addition, we’re ensuring as much of our packaging products as possible are PVC free or of a quality of PVC that can be recycled.

Our Carbon Footprint

Some of our lesser known but much encouraged practices are:

– Encouraging home working where possible to save emissions
– Map and schedule our own vehicle deliveries to reduce our carbon footprint
– Discourage office printing with around 90% of our Admin tasks now completed without the need for printing and shutting down machines or onto standby when not in use
– We now have switched over 60% of company cars to Electric and have onsite charging infrastructure which is a huge milestone towards our target

You can help our sustainable journey too!

This journey to a Greener future is relatively new for us all, and we love to hear ideas from our customers and suppliers that can help us all achieve our targets faster and more effectively.
