Iceland’s Christmas TV ad was banned due to originally being run by Greenpeace and therefore running foul of restrictions on political messages. Despite this, or maybe because of it, the ad has done spectacularly well, going viral online and having a petition signed by nearly 700,000 people (at the time of writing) asking for the ban to be overturned. The ad itself doesn’t have a particularly Christmassy message, it’s about the destruction of rainforests to enable palm oil production, but its popularity is a good indication of increasing awareness of the need for sustainable production methods.
Here at Restore we’re always looking for ways to reduce our energy consumption and overall carbon footprint. Our archive boxes are made from FSC-certified sources and are 100% recyclable, while our lighting is a mix of ultra-low wattage LED and PIR sensors, the latter particularly useful in large storage facilities as their localised on/off switch keeps consumption to a minimum. We will shortly be taking delivery of our first fully electric vehicle and are having solar panels installed on the roof of a brand-new extension to our major storage facility in Rainham, Essex – our aim being to power the building and, ultimately, our electric vehicle.
As the saying goes, ‘every little helps’.
