BBF get even greener

Posted by British Bird Food 10/11/2011 0 Comment(s)
As from today we are proud to say that we are producing our own electricity! A small part in our global impact (a reduction of 3oooKgs of carbon per year locally) but it is the principle that matters. We are always looking to reduce our environmental impact and installing solar Photovoltaic panels is a major step forward. We have been wanting to do this for some years but the time just hasn't been right until now. We will produce more electricity than we use in terms of the packing of bird seed and the surplus will be used by us in our home, or fed back into the national grid - reducing the need to produce so much by fossil or nuclear fuels. Other environmental initiatives adopted by BBF are:- No use of mixing or mechanical handling equipment (all by hand) Heating provided by recycled paper and wood fire. 90% re-use of incoming packaging. Returnable polythene bags. You can be sure that when you buy your wild bird food, nest boxes, wildlife habitats, garden gifts and bird feeding accessories on line from British Bird Food, you will be dealing with a truly environmentally friendly company.
