NO XMAS CARD FROM THE ACRES GROUP?

If you don’t get a lovely festive Christmas card from the Acres Group please don’t worry, it doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about you, that your business and support isn’t appreciated or that you’ve somehow made it onto the ‘naughty list this year. No like last year we’ve taken the decision to hold off sending physical cards in favour of a more electronic version.

Why?

Well we take our sustainability responsibility seriously at the Acres Group and we’re always looking for ways to reduce the amount of paper or energy we consume and generally we’re more ways to reduce our impact on the environment.

I’m sure you’re aware of this but every Christmas residents of the UK use a lot of cards. On average, each person in the UK will send / receive 17 Christmas cards (I’m sure I don’t get that many!!)

However, it is true that each of us will discard these once the festive period is over. So let’s see the math’s

Let’s assume that 1 tree is used to make 3,000 Christmas cards.

So 1 tree is only enough for 176 people to send cards to their loved ones.

Unfortunately this then means that 1 billion Christmas cards will be thrown away and this works out at approximately 33 million trees!

To put the amount of waste into perspective the total amount of Christmas cards sent, along with other card packaging used over Christmas, could cover Big Ben over 250,000 times.

In addition to sending e-cards instead of physical ones we’re committing to reducing paper waste by issuing electronic quotes and invoices, avoiding printing wherever possible. We also use recycled paper for our internal printing . We’re doing everything we can to reduce energy consumption too, we switch off lights when we walk out of a room, we also ensure we turn off monitors when not in use.

One thing that we do want you to know is that we’re really grateful for all of the support from our clients. We hope you all have a fantastic Christmas break and we’re really looking forward to working with you in 2021.
