2020; the year of wellness at work, being more environmentally aware and offering healthier alternatives in the workplace. These were our key themes for Hygiene and Catering in our brand new catalogue.

We are pleased to introduce you to our even greener and more environmentally aware hygiene products. There are fantastic new ranges with sustainable and environmentally friendly credentials such as The Cheeky Panda Tissue Range. Not only is The Cheeky Panda a carbon balanced company, they also use 100% sustainable Bamboo for their products. Did you know Bamboo is the world’s fastest growing plant, as it grows bamboo absorbs up to 35% more carbon and produces 30% more oxygen than trees. Growing 30% faster than trees makes it the most sustainable product in the paper market. We are proud to have introduced over 20 new Cheeky Panda products to our catalogue; ranging from Toilet Rolls & Flushable Hand Towels to Plastic Free Kitchen Roll and Bamboo Wipes!

Another addition to our hygiene section is here by popular demand; The Brabantia Bin Range. Brabantia have really stepped up their green game with their NewIcon pedal bins, not only are the sustainable pedal bins made of 40% recycled materials but after use 98% of the bin and packaging is recyclable! On top of that, with every NewIcon pedal bin that is sold, Brabantia makes a donation to The Ocean Cleanup to fulfil its mission – to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. A great environmental cause to get behind.

Lyreco have created comprehensive ranges of essential Hygiene & Cleaning products such as our Lyreco Pro Range and our Lyreco Tissue Range. We created these with the intention to always bring you value for money, i.e. good quality products for a reasonable price. Our Lyreco Tissue is not only affordable and made with 100% pure virgin fibre, it also has been awarded the EU Ecolabel. Our Lyreco Pro range of cleaning products are also EU Ecolabel certified; a symbol of environmental excellence due to our products meeting high environmental standards throughout their life-cycle.

Following our recent removal of single use plastic cups from our Telford site in 2019, we made it our mission to source more re-usable cups and water bottles for our 2020 catalogue. Our Bamboo Ecoffee Cups are a great new addition! Not only are they made with renewable and sustainable bamboo fibre, they are also free from BPA, BPS, Phthalate, animal products and latex. To top it off, they’re available in a wide range of contemporary patterns and colours. Another new product range to our re-usable cups & water bottle range is the Sistema Tritan Water Bottles. They are a convenient size and are also made completely from high quality ultra-clear Tritan which is; impact resistant, leak-proof, BPA and Phthalate free.

More sustainable and environmentally friendly alternatives were one of our main focuses this year. We are pleased to introduce Vegware; made from sustainably sourced paperboard, these rigid Vegware food cartons are fully compostable. The cartons are also leak-proof, microwaveable and feature a grease-resistant lining.

Eating healthy at work can be difficult at times, we have recently introduced many healthier alternatives to our confectionery range. Nakd Bars are Vegan & Gluten, Wheat and Dairy Free and are made of just nuts and fruits! The Eat Natural Bars are another great addition to our healthier alternatives. A complete Gluten Free range, only made from the best wholesome ingredients and suitable for vegetarians. As well as this, we have also introduced Snacking Essentials which is a range of snack packs providing the perfect balance of taste, nutrition and energy boost which we all need to get us through the day! Plus, they are completely natural and full of goodness.

Lastly, 2020 sees an increase to our Hot Drinks range. We are pleased to now be selling Starbucks as part of our coffee beans and ground coffee range and also Thorntons Luxury Hot Chocolate! Another new addition to our hot drinks selection is the Superblend Tea by Twinings; Focus, Glow, Calm and Energise. This is a delicious new range of green teas and infusions which are expertly blended with botanical’s, natural fruit flavours, added vitamins and minerals.

It’s not just out with the old and in with the new, our 2020 catalogue is packed with plenty of ‘old favourites’! Our hot drinks selection still include some of the most famous worldwide brands such as; Nescafé, Kenco and Tetley. Every hot drink needs a biscuit?
