The 2021 Global Good Awards celebrate companies and their sustainable impacts on large and small scales and this Bronze award ranks ECO360® alongside household names such as NatWest Group, Redrow Homes, Tesco Mobile.
Speaking about the achievement, Ben Gibbs, Marketing & Sustainability Manager for TCi (GB) Ltd said; “We’re really proud to be recognised by an organisation with such great purpose on a global scale, and to appear amongst so many major international brands. ECO360® is part of a range of innovative products and services that have been developed by TCi furniture WORKS to reduce waste within the construction industry and we are constantly finding new ways to improve.”
The latest iteration of ECO360® fully recyclable cardboard office desk design was launched in summer 2020 as a plastic-free and net-carbon-zero furniture product. Having replaced the 3mm acrylic desk protector with a new, waterproof cardboard material, the desk’s environmental credentials have been substantially improved and the small, remaining carbon footprint is offset by planting trees.
