bakergoodchild furthers its commitment to sustainability

bakergoodchild has helped to plant over 3,000 sapling trees as part of a carbon capture tree-planting day that was held on 23 November at Langley Vale Wood in Surrey. Members of bakergoodchild’s staff were accompanied by TV personality, Julia Bradbury, who joined them on their conservation efforts.

The tree-planting day initiative forms part of bakergoodchild’s membership of national paper merchant, The Premier Paper Group, and its Carbon Capture programme, which is in partnership with The Woodland Trust and the Woodland Carbon scheme.

By becoming part of the Carbon Capture programme, bakergoodchild is working towards its ambition to make the whole process of direct mail greener, and also to help educate the direct mail sector on how to act responsibly by ensuring that all companies recycle and seek to do their best where applicable, to minimise waste.

Commenting on its commitment to the Carbon Capture scheme and the success of the tree planting day, bakergoodchild’s operations director, Wesley Sinclair, stated:

Early in the year we introduced our potato starch based polywrap to our customers, giving us something that is 100% compostable and environmentally friendly. We have continued our commitment to green initiatives, by joining the Premier paper carbon capture program in conjunction with the Woodland Trust.

This gives us the chance to plant new trees and rebuild forest in the UK, which will help to improve the environment around us for future generations. Team BG are very proud to be involved and will continue to invest and pioneer in green initiatives to benefit the direct mail industry as a whole. “
