Impacts of running an office

We think using recycled office materials is really important, due to the impact that paper production has on ecosystems. A huge amount of paper is produced from unsustainable forestry, and many nasty chemicals used in its production.

As a result we only use 100% recycled paper for printing and to make labels. Here is our latest delivery from the wonderful people at Green Stationery Company.

We even use pencils from FSC forestry and recycled plastic pens! All these things do matter.

The other major resource use in the office is the use of energy. As our office is at home it is heated by a combination of our wood burner, solar hot water and electricity from our solar panels.

But when the sun’s not shining we buy electricity from Good Energy who supply a 100% renewable energy tariff…so the climate impact of our electricity demand is negligible.

I started Scilly Organics in 2003, and it was the first certified organic farm on the Islands. We continue to supply the highest quality fruit and vegetables, available fresh on our stall and at certain eateries on Scilly.
