I commend you to share our short video. Being in this role for just over 12 months there is far more interest and excitement in the circular economy than there was when I started. Unfortunately, though there is now far more ‘every-day’ talk about climate change and we see the effects of climate change are also hitting our screens on a more regular basis. Whether there are once-in-a-century floods in Venice happening three times in one week, or the devastating fires in Australia; we are all seeing the effects of a changing climate. We know that virgin plastic production is energy intensive and use of timber, particularly hardwood, for pallets is hard to believe across modern supply chains. Deforestation is linked to climate change and I hope that companies evaluating their supply chains, can include the damaging effects of using timber pallets on their pallet evaluations and switch to a more sustainable alternative such as Re>Pal and become a Re>Pal client.
I commend you to share our short video we produced, from the Open Day held earlier this year at the factory, and hopefully this inspires the next company to join the Re>Pal movement.
