Social Responsibility

Local Businesses

Brooks Braithwaite (Sussex) Ltd try to source business supplies and printing from local businesses to help cut down on traveling and to support the local economy.


Recycling

social-globeWe have introduced recycling as the main method of waste disposal encouraging this through the removal of paper waste bins from within our offices. The majority of waste including toner ink is now recycled.

By participating in a shredding and recycling programme, whereby our paper waste is removed, shredded and recycled by an external company, we saved thirty trees from destruction in 2013. This can be compared to 2012, when we saved twenty one trees and 2011 when we saved eleven trees. The statistics demonstrate our commitment to continually improve our recycling efforts.

The Barn Owl Centre
social-barnowlWe recently supported the Barn Own Centre sponsoring a release aviary for wild Tawny owls. Our donation of £900 was used to purchase materials for and to build the release aviary, so that wild Tawny owls who had been injured or were ill, could be rehabilitated and then released back into the wild.
