Itís not just some of our glazes that are green, so are we!
Denby was the first UK tableware manufacturer to be able to claim Ďzero to landfillí for all our process waste. This saves approximately 600 tons of CO2 emissions each year. Thatís the equivalent of all our 300+ Denby employees car journeys in a year being Ďcarbon neutralí!
Because our quality standards are so high, any clay with faults is recycled into new stoneware. We save 2500 tons of raw clay, the equivalent of 350 fully loaded double decker buses!
We make all our molds from plaster of Paris. These are recycled to make plasterboard and every year 300 tons of plaster of Paris molds is enough to fully plaster 50 new homes!
Every year we recycle over 100,000 liters of glaze during the glazing process, thatís enough to glaze nearly 1 million pots!
We re-use 8 million liters of water per year and we purify and return to the water cycle 28 million liters of water. Thatís enough to fill 12 Olympic size swimming pools!
We receive over 300 tons of packaging a year and itís all recycled. And wherever possible we minimize the packaging we send out by using reusable totes.
And we are not stopping there, as we are committed to continuously finding new ways of making a positive contribution to the environment.
