Our commitment to our environment
At TJ Books we are actively being as environmentally friendly as possible. We take pride in being based in Cornwall, with the ocean right on our doorstep. As individuals and as a TJ Books team, we are committed to limiting our damage to our surroundings and are always focused on preserving the local and global environment.
Our HSQE Officer Robert Irwin is ensuring that we are continuously at the forefront, and future-facing, in our mission to be an environmentally friendly print operation.
TJ Books is committed to recycling and we manage to recycle 98% of the waste produced throughout the business. Rob monitors our waste output to ensure we are continuing to fulfil this. Our paper waste is split into different streams across our operation to enable easier, and more efficient recycling. We are also constantly looking at new and alternative ways of reducing our plastic consumption as much as possible.
