I’m sure you will recognise our reusable blue tote boxes; thousands are distributed daily, delivering essential supplies to practices up and down the country and then collected the following day for reuse.
What you may not know is that these tote boxes are made from recyclable plastic and once they reach the end of their operational life are sent to be made into other objects.
Here at NVS, we are always looking for ways to make our operation as sustainable as possible. We are proud to announce the introduction of a new black tote box that is not only recyclable but is itself made from 100% recycled plastic.
The new black tote boxes are the same size and just as strong as the current blue ones. The first deliveries in our new, black, recycled tote boxes have begun today and you may be one of the first recipients to receive one.
Of course we will not be withdrawing our blue tote boxes immediately, we’ll let them continue until they are no longer able to be used; so you can expect a mix of blue and black totes with your deliveries in the coming months.
How can you help us deliver a greener pawprint?
By ensuring you return tote boxes (either black or blue) to your delivery driver, we can keep them in circulation as long as possible, ensuring the maximum lifespan before they go off to be recycled.
We’d love to see how our new recycled black tote boxes are being received in the field. When you first receive a delivery in a black tote box why not take a picture and post it on social media using the hashtag #GreenerPawPrint.
