The Importance of Sustainability
Sustainability is very important to us! We aim to enhance the quality of our products in the most environmentally friendly way. We don’t want to exhaust natural resources and we thereby follow a number of different processes in order to make Yorica! as sustainable as possible.
Here at Yorica! we believe that one of the most effective ways to have a positive impact on the environment is to recycle. Recycling saves energy, helps protect the environment, reduces landfill and conserves raw materials. We strongly believe that recycling is a key element in making Yorica! sustainable.
To recycle our waste effectively, we have partnered with a waste management company who have a high recycling rate of 66% compared to the average rate in London of just 33%. We have arranged daily waste and recycling collections, varying from mixed recycling, coffee recycling, food recycling and cardboard recycling. This is especially effective for us as we have a wide variety of products that need to be recycled daily.
In order to make the most out of our resources at Yorica! we have sourced eco-friendly food packaging and catering disposables. Our cutlery upholds four main characteristics, it is low carbon, certified compostable, is high heat-resistant and is both eco and economically friendly We intend to provide zero waste and want our products to be completely bio-degradable.
Chemicals and Packaging
We carefully source our cleaning materials and packaging products from companies who see the environment as a crucial element within their beliefs and policies. We aim to work with suppliers who actively support and enforce renewable and efficient energy, sustainable natural products and recycling and sustainable waste management. It is key that all of these aspects are actively taken into account throughout every stage of business planning.
Finally, our chosen suppliers must be dedicated to building a sustainable future and aim to reduce any detrimental impacts their business may have on our environment. They must look to develop ways to ensure continual improvement in their environmental performance. For example, they should aim to conserve natural resources used in operations, minimise waste in production and packaging, reduce emissions of solvents and provide safe, clean and hygienic working conditions. Furthermore, they must aim to ensure efficient management of their vehicle fleets to reduce emissions, using electric vehicles where possible.
