Anstey Wallpaper - designers and printers of beautiful, quality wallcoverings
Building greener lifestyles starts with the selection of products that are made in environmentally friendly ways from environmentally friendly processes. Environmental management is a growing sphere of activity within the organisation.
As we collectively become more aware of our environmental responsibilities, the burden falls upon manufacturing and supply to develop strategies of continuous improvement.
Wallcoverings are derived from natural materials, are sourced from sustainable materials, have a long lifecycle and can be recycled, decorated over, or disposed of safely with most being fully biodegradable.
During the manufacturing and printing process, materials are reused, recycled to reduce environmental impact, energy costs and processing costs. Non-toxic materials go into their manufacture and colouration. A waste water plant recycles used water-based inks and returns clean water to the recycle chain. Solvent-based ink waste is recycled and volatile organic compound emissions are processed to ensure environmental compliance is maintained.
Our paper suppliers have long been in the business of
sustainability. For forest owners there is an in-built necessity
to replant to ensure supply is maintained over a 20 year
growing cycle. Modern timber logging techniques and
management systems ensure that only selected trees are
felled allowing biodiversity to be maintained. Timber is
sourced from northern softwood forests accredited to
ISO 9000, ISO 14001, PEFC and FSC management
systems, together with the EU Timber Regulations.
