As a manufacturer we have greater visibility of our supply chain than most and are making significant efforts to eliminate waste and adopt sustainable practices where possible.
The very nature of our products encourages repeat use and less waste, such as repairing an inner tube with our repair kits as opposed to replacing it and regular degreasing and lubing of your bike chain prolongs its life before needing to be replaced.
A key goal we have is to heavily reduce the amount of plastic in our supply chain. Since the start of 2020, we have removed plastic blister packaging from more than 20 product lines. By switching to cardboard box packaging for these products we have eliminated more than two tonnes of plastic annually from passing through our factory and reaching you, our customers. As a result, we have been able to significantly reduce outer pack dimensions which in turn enables more product to be shipped on one pallet, reducing transport related CO2 emissions.
We are proud to have a whole range of eco-friendly, biodegradable product lines in the Weldtite range. Specifically, our PURE range which is made in the UK and utilises the use of 100% sustainable and biodegradable ingredients. Packaging is 100% recyclable too, ensuring we have as little impact on the environment as possible for the benefit of your bicycle and the trails you ride on.
At Weldtite our staff are committed to improving their impact on the environment through everyday choices such as adopting green modes of transport. Whether that includes walking, running or riding to the factory or walking into Barton-upon-Humber for lunch or meetings our staff clock up over 12,000 miles annually by choosing green modes of transport.
