Recycling

We are committed to going above and beyond to ensure that all of our processes are as environmentally-friendly as possible. Here are just a few of the systems that we’ve put in place to provide us with sustainable energy and to reduce and recycle waste.

The production facility is built on top of a large closed loop recycling system which captures waste directly from the machines and processes it into tightly packed card bales for recycling as seen in the photo.

The roof of the Atlas factory is fitted with efficient solar panels which provide us with much of our power for heating and lighting.

We source our inks from the Huber Group making sure that all inks are water based. The inks also do not contain any ingredients derived from animals.

FSC certification

Atlas has FSC® certification with a Chain of Custody Certificate. This shows our continued commitment to the environment and responsible forest management. A Chain of Custody Certificate gives the end user the comfort of knowing that the end product comes from a well managed, sustainable forest which protects long term timber supplies as well as the environment and the people and communities that depend on the forest for their livelihood.

Our FSC® Product Group List is available upon request

Corrugated cardboard is made from a natural, renewable resource that is manufactured using high percentages of recycled fibre (up to 88%). The board is often reused multiple times and is recycled more than any other packaging material used today.

Every step of the manufacturing process has been updated over the years to become more environmentally-friendly. Corrugated material meets all environmental guidelines and goes beyond the spirit of government and industry mandates based on environmental concerns.

Corporate Social Responsibility

In Spring 2019 here at Atlas Packaging we launched our own CSR project in association with Orchards Live, a Devon based organisation that helps in the reintroduction of apple orchards across North Devon. As a company we wanted to do more than our FSC contribution to tree planting, we were keen to plant trees locally but to create something more long lasting. That’s when we came up with the idea of Our School Orchard.

We have established a schools tree planting and educational programme which provides three apple trees per school along with a short training session about how to plant and then look after the young maiden whips that they’ve been given. The first 18 trees have been planted in six Primary Schools in North Devon with further schools taking part this Autumn and Spring 2020.

Plastic Free Bike

Atlas Packaging designed and created a large corrugated cardboard bicycle to sit flat against Capstone Hill in Ilfracombe. The temporary bike was a piece of land art to commemorate the 2018 Tour of Britain riding through North Devon. It was made from corrugated cardboard like a giant jigsaw and pieced together on location. The bike was created to raise awareness of the Plastic Free movement with the spokes made out of ocean waste plastic and recycled plastic bottles
