Dolly Parton, new kit and good skills..

So as we stride in to our second year, confident we are following the right path, and of course enjoying ourselves the whole way, it's good to know that we're not loosing any energy!

Recently we completed a carbon audit for all of our customers, the plan now is to issue them all with a window sticker to tell their customers how good to the environment they've been, it'll look something like this What's missing from that is of course the company name, just for now we're keeping it a big secret who's been our number one carbon saver! We are making an award and of course giving a prize to each and every one of our customers. Local great and green company Reprodux are offering to improve the green printing credentials for our customers. Sourcing them quality papers which are more friendly to the environment, teaching them about vegetable based inks and generally looking at saving them some cash on their print production.

It's been an interesting project to look at how much carbon we really have saved, our recycling operation alone is close to saving 600 tonnes of Co2 eq. !

With lots of new business on the horizon we've had to order some new uniform to keep us operating to our full potential and of course keep us looking good.. Howies have supplied us with some jackets so now we're looking at getting them printed up locally. We're going to stick decals on the forearms and back in a reflective material. You'll also notice that the drawing shows we're having a decal on the back of the hood. We thought we'd harness the imortal words of Dolly Parton and stick them on the back to cheer folk up when it's a bit drab... We'll have to see how that one works out...

Lots more updates to come (we can't really say what about at the moment) but in the mean time why not try some new skills out on your bike:
