Keeping it Green - Hotmilk's Commitment to the environment
Here at Hotmilk we understand the ever-growing pressures placed on our environment and we do our utmost best to minimize the harmful effects materialism has on our planet and its people. To showcase how much we care, we thought we'd let you know exactly what we do to help minimize our footprint.
No More Hangers
We’ve significantly reduced our waste by not having every garment come from our factory on a hanger. This has resulted in 100,000 less hangers for the rubbish dump every year!
Keeping The World Green
We are passionate about recycling and using products that have minimal impact on the environment. Within our office and warehouse we have a strict recycling policy which includes:
- All boxes are flat packed and recycled
- All products are delivered without coat hangers to reduce the amount of plastic consumed within our environment.
- We make a conservative effort to reduce in house printing and all waste paper is recycled
- We use Ecostore products for cleaning
- Energy saving lightbulbs are used where possible.
