Family Firm Sprucing Up Christmas

11th December 2019 Paul Andrews

Nottingham-based packaging manufacturer The Wilkins Group is preparing to 'spruce up Christmas' by sending over 500 Christmas tree shrubs to their clients, as part of a festive competition!  

In a continued bid to become more sustainable, the packaging company is treating its clients to grow-your-own Christmas trees.  The senior management team will measure the trees in November 2020 and the largest grower will be rewarded with vouchers worth £100. 

Sales and Marketing director, Justin Wilkins said “We are committed to reducing the use of single-use plastic and we want our customers to share this passion too. The Christmas tree growing competition is a fun and engaging way to treat our clients at Christmas time and encourage them to be part of our sustainable journey.” 

This is the latest environmentally-friendly initiative from the company to raise awareness of plastic packaging waste.  Earlier this year, staff volunteered to pick litter at Gibraltar Point and gathered items such as microwaveable trays and a builder’s sack full of items.  The items were then displayed at Packaging Innovations Show. 

The company also organised a visit to the Colwick Recycling Centre to further educate their team on what items can be recycled.
