For over a decade now, office equipment supplier Ricoh NZ Ltd has been buying Replas Kakadu seats, which ties in well with the company’s global environmental management strategy. Ricoh actively encourages customers to recycle their used toner cartridges through a free collection box programme, where 100% of each recovered cartridge is recycled. Ricoh demonstrates their support for recycling by supplying customers with Kakadu seats to help promote environmental awareness. ‘Ricoh supports recycling in a major way,’ says Margie Barriball, Sustainability Advisor. ‘The Replas seats are a great example of what can be done with recycled plastic manufactured into functional and durable furniture that stays looking good for a long, long time.’ As well as placing Kakadu seats in its New Zealand offices, Ricoh provides them to some major customers, including schools and government departments. ‘Yes, the seats are a great promotional tool for the company and what we stand for. Most importantly however, they are highly practical pieces of sustainably produced outdoor furniture, available for people to use for years to come.
