  • Canford stops recycling!...

    Canford stops recycling!...

    …and begins re-using. One of the biggest impacts Canford has on the environment is in our necessary use of packaging in various forms. From this point forward Canford will re-use all boxes and other packaging materials wherever possible when packing your order for despatch, a scheme that is even more environmentally friendly than recycling as no energy input is required.
