It's easy to be eco-friendly
We're very keen to promote sustainable business and we try to help our customers do the same. On this page
you can find out about ways that you can help reduce your impact on the environment.
Switch to electronic documents
You can easily switch to having your invoices and statements sent to you by email instead of by post.
Having documents emailed instead of posted saves paper and may help reduce C02 emissions since the requirement
for mail deliveries is reduced. You may also find electronic documents easier to manage and generally
more convenient, since they are sent instantly and are stored easily.

Reduce paper waste & C02 emissions: Order online
When you order by post or fax your order has to be typed into your computer, posted or faxed and then punched into
one of our computers. At times there are errors or unreadable parts to the orders, so we have to contact you to confirm
order details before processing. This is a long and wasteful process. By ordering online or by phone you know instantly
whether a product is in or out of stock, you can correct errors straight away, view our latest products and changes (online)
and track your order. You can also make changes to your account, have our latest deals
emailed to you and much more.

Switch to eco-friendly products
It's the little changes that add up to make a big difference. Just by changing some of the
products you purchase regularly to eco-friendly alternatives you can be more
environmentally friendly. Have you looked at our eco-friendly and recycled product range?
SIMS users: sign up to receive catalogue updates by email
By signing-up to receive your catalogue updates by email instead of having the CD's mailed to you,
you are helping the environment by reducing manufacturing waste and delivery van carbon footprints.
To encourage this eco-friendly move we will donate £1 to Build Africa for every one of our customers
that signs up to receive SIMS catalogue updates by email instead of by post.
What's more, by having SIMS emailed to you, you don't have to wait for the CD to be delivered and you can have
the latest updates emailed to you automatically so you don't have to remember to update.
