Caring for the Environment

The way we live has a dramatic effect on our natural resources and the environment. We are committed, where possible, to minimising the impact our activities have on our eco system. We aim to trade with environmentally aware companies who have, or who are developing environmental policies, procedures and systems.

In addition we aim to reduce, recycle and reuse packaging wherever possible. Please don’t throw your laser and inkjet cartridges in the bin. We can supply you with a free recycle bin and collect it when it’s full.

If you care as much as us about the environment, then contact our customer services department to learn more about our extensive range of environmentally-friendly products.

At Rapide we endeavour to minimise the environmental impact of its work by implementing good environmental practice in all its dealings with external organisations.
