Welcome Packs

As a part of our commitment to sustainability, all our customers receive 100% recyclable welcome packs. These packs are associated with a dedicated account manager and include a quick-view sheet that can be easily pinned to notice boards. Additionally, a 'scan me' QR code provides instant access to more information about effective recycling practices within your building.
