" One of the first conditions of happiness is that the link
between man and nature shall not be broken. "
Environment and sustainability - Leo Tolstoy

The Reddrop Group is committed to being part of a green and sustainable future. We are continually trying to make positive changes within our stores to minimise the impact on the environment.

IT’S IN THE BAG

We designed for our customers what we believe is the most environmentally friendly, ergonomic, reusable shopping bag on the market in our stores. These bags are made from Juco, a blend of jute (75%) and cotton (25%). In addition, our bags are lined with a vegetable lining NOT plastic!

Not only are they better for the environment, they are durable and large in size so can hold more than most reusable bags.

WE’RE PUSHING FOR CHANGE

As we upgrade and replace our trolleys, we have made the conscious decision to switch to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly product. The plastic component used in our new trolleys are made using recycled milk bottles, there are at least 66 bottles in every trolley, meaning 66 fewer in landfill.

MAKING THE SWITCH

Nearly 60% of our stores have already been installed with solar panels, in order to reduce our group’s environmental footprint. We have a conscious objective to cut carbon emissions from traditional electricity sources where ever we can.
