IAA Awards

Spar pelyntAs individuals, we all know how important it is to increase the number of things we do to help the environment. We’re trying to recycle more of our rubbish, turning off lights that aren’t needed and using our cars less, to name just a few.

Businesses, no matter how big or small, also have a duty to act responsibly and take the same approach.

For Sophie and Paul Boxall, improving the way their business is run to make it more green and sustainable is high on their agenda. And it’s not just about being environmentally friendly. The steps they have taken are also saving them a lot of money.
