Bristan reduces carbon footprint equivelant to 620,750 plastic bottles a year

There is a huge drive from companies across the country to drive down the amount of plastic that they use and the impact they have on the environment. According to research, it can take hundreds or even thousands of years for plastic to break down.

Bristan is making sure it is on top of its environmental responsibility by using the latest products and technology in its factory – which will prevent the equivalent of over 620,000 plastic bottles entering the environment over the next year.

We're taking environmental responsibility by using the latest products and technology to prevent the equivalent of over 620,000 plastic bottles entering the environment over the next year.From the beginning of November 2019, Bristan has been using less plastic shrink wrap by using new hand wrap machines. The innovative approach will reduce plastic waste by more than 7 tonnes and reduce its CO² impact by over 17 tonnes – that’s the same as taking eight cars off the road!

The new hand wrap machines will also reduce the manual handling time in the factory and increase productivity by over 35%.

Bristan Group CEO Darius Padler says: “We’re committed to ensuring that we’re responsible for our carbon footprint and environmental impact. I’m really pleased to see the work we have been doing to improve our shrink wrapping technology is already making an impact. I’m determined to continue our work to ensure we remain an environmentally responsible business.”

Ian Edgar, Distribution Centre Manager, said: “The new shrink wrapping plastic and hand wrapping machines are fantastic and it’s great to see our work is that little more eco-friendly. Saving the equivalent of over 620,000 plastic bottles in waste is a pretty incredible difference to make.”
