Wormcity’s Environmental Policy
Wormcity is committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral and fundamental part of our business strategy and operating methods.
It is our priority to encourage our customers, suppliers and all business associates to do the same. Not only is this sound commercial sense for all; it is also a matter of delivering on our duty of care towards future generations.
Wormcity has been successful where as a business we now produce zero commercial waste, by practising the principles of the 3Rs by:
Reducing waste where possible by thinking about what we buy and how we use it.
Non-essential documents and emails will not be printed.
Re-use wherever possible by trying to find a second life for items especially paper and office stationery. Scrap paper will be used in printers, fax machines, for taking messages and for writing notes or draft copies of documents. We are committed to the re-use of envelopes and packaging where possible.
All waste paper is shredded and used for worm bedding.
Any boxes that we have will, be reused where ever possible to send our wormeries / worms in. Any that aren’t used are torn and used for worm food.
So if you get delivered a box with a picture of a 50 inch flat screened TV on it, please don’t be too disappointed when you open it to find a wormery ;))
Recycle All paper, card, cardboard, toner cartridges (by refilling)
Food waste will be fed to our worms in our wormeries.
Wormcity will seek to purchase fair-traded and environmentally sound goods.
Wormcity will seek to minimize the use of energy in its activities. For example lights and equipment will be switched on only when needed and not out of routine.
