As a business, we’re committed to improving the impact we have on the environment. This goal is two-fold: it comes down to the ways we operate and the products we produce.
What are our sustainability initiatives?
Our Australian operations will be carbon neutral by June 2022.
We’re still learning exactly what carbon neutral means for us as a business. We’re experts in thread count, not CO2 per sqm. But not knowing hasn’t stopped us before. We’ve enlisted the help of Heidi from CarbonNeutral.com to help us understand and achieve this goal. It’ll happen in three stages.
And we named him Christian. Like Christian Bale, our cardboard baler is our very own superhero. He’s come to save the day – or just our warehouse.
Like other warehouses, we need a lot of cardboard. It’s easy to recycle, so we previously didn’t fix what wasn’t broken. Until the problems started piling up. Extra trips in the truck, additional processing time and unnecessary physical labour to flatten boxes by hand. Enter Christian, the cardboard baler. A cardboard baler is a machine that crushes boxes and turns them into bales of cardboard. We collect our bales fortnightly, sending them straight to the recycler, saving time and resources in the process.
The Sheet Society Sustainability Squad (SSSS for short) is made of representatives from each department in our business. We meet once a month to discuss the big things: like how we can go about our business in a more sustainable way. And the little things: like who keeps leaving the kitchen light on. No idea is off the table.
