Step 12

Hand dryers

ONE recycled paper towel creates 10g of CO2e and they can't be recycled. Whereas a Dyson Airblade generates 2g of CO2e.
Easy to see why EDWPS invested in these Dyson hand dryers.

We are ISO 14001 accredited which means that we already implement a framework for an effective environmental management system. However we don't want to stop just there!

We have been taking strides both big and small to make our business even more sustainable and environmentally friendly. Working hard to become an eco printer and being conscious of our impact.
We know there is still a long way to go but please join us on our journey to becoming a sustainable business.
