We were caring about the environment long before it was trendy to do so. Taplanes has been around for 40 years and our amazing products are designed to last! They all incorporate recycled materials and we promise to take back any Taplanes products when they have reached the end of their life and recycle them – just like the Lion King, we have the circle of life for polypropylene pods although we promise that no animals get eaten!
Our production processes don’t involve anything being sent to landfill or for incineration and within our office and factory we have ditched the use of single-use plastic wherever possible, are actively looking for eco-friendly alternatives and are on a mission to reduce our carbon footprint year on year. Of course, our pods will last forever so they aren’t being returned on a daily basis – instead, when someone fancies a change, we usually offer to give them a makeover and they end up looking as good as new at a fraction of the price. Check out the University of Leeds, Coach House (Devonshire Halls) case study to see the fantastic project results there.
And, because our pods are so easy to clean, there is no need to use nasty cleaning products that then pollute the waterways, which especially pleases our MD as she likes to scuba dive and has a thing about keeping the rivers and oceans clean.
