Environmental Policy

Environmental policy

Sorted Direct Mail is dedicated to reducing the environmental impact of our business on the planet. We have implemented measures to reduce our waste and carbon footprint and have put processes in place to ensure our clients are fully aware of and understand the eco-friendly options available to them.

Sourcing Materials

Where possible, we use as many eco-friendly materials and operations as possible. We provide compostable, recyclable and biodegradable polywrap, and a large number of our enveloped and packaging is made from recycled materials.We also utilise vegetable-based inks for our in-house printing.

Disposing of Materials

Where possible, we recycle as much of our waste as we can, including paper waste, polythene wrapping, toner cartridges, wooden pallets and much more.

To make our waste easier to transport and reduce the number of journeys, we use on-site balers to compact our paper and plastic waste.

Internal Policies

  • Staff are encouraged to car share and use public transport to reduce CO2 emissions

  • We operate a closed-door policy at warehouses to minimise heat usage

  • To save electricity, machines are only turned on when in use and lights are turned off throughout the building when not in use

  • Drivers are asked to turn off vehicle engines while waiting in the delivery yard

  • We encourage bulk packaging of leaflets and brochures when possible to reduce unnecessary wastage

  • We recommend clients minimise packaging on their mailings by ensuring boxes aren’t oversized, or by doing away with packaging completely where possible

Environmentally Friendly Data

In order to reduce the amount of materials used, we strive to keep our databases up to date, so that your mailing reaches the right people.

We ensure our customers are aware of the range of data cleansing techniques we offer for their data sets.

We also work with our clients on mailing returns and update them on undelivered records to keep their databases up-to-date.

Eco-Friendly Postage

We offer discounts for eco-friendly mail.

By including a number of green features in mailings we get various discounts on the cost of postage.

These characteristics include meeting four main criteria:

  • Sourcing and recyclability

  • Data accuracy

  • Opting out

  • Mail item specification

  • To learn more, call a member of our account management team and find out how you can gain access to postage discounts on your direct mail.
