At Poole Bay Holdings Ltd we pride ourselves in being forward thinkers in sustainability. We are proud to say that as part of NBB Recycled Furniture Ltd we have actively saved over 30 million plastic bottles going to landfills & oceans. Historically plastic is an extremely useful and versatile material. However it is often stigmatised for its association with everyday litter. In the last 30 years plastic has grown to become an essential part of modern life, we now use approximately 20 times more plastic than we did 50 years ago. Traditional materials are increasingly being replaced with recycled plastic because it does the job better, it is cheaper, it uses less energy and water and emits lower levels of CO2 in its production.

No More Poly Bags…
As of 2018 we no longer use poly bags in the delivery of our catalogues saving over 7.5 tonnes of plastic every year! This has been hugely impactful and we will be looking into reducing our plastic footprint even further in the future.
We only use PEFC certified paper. PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) is a global umbrella organisation; it is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organisation, founded in 1999.
