The environment has been moved to the top of our agenda for 2020 - and for every year thereafter
Spotlight On The Environment
2020 sees us shifting our primary focus to the environment. Environmental impact has too long been an after-thought for many businesses and we are determined to change this mindset. This year our priority is to begin our journey to achieving carbon neutrality. When making any commercial decision we shall now be asking ourselves what the impact on the environment will be and then take appropriate action.
The 2020 brochure details our current plans and pledges to have a positive impact on the environment. There are several components to our plan to be carbon neutral. These aspects include external donations and internal changes to our everyday practices.
Recycling of course plays a big role. We have banned single use plastics across all our sites and re-usable materials are now being used as standard. Aside from recycling household waste we also recycle in our factory. Recycling materials such as wooden pallets, stone waste and even the water we use when cutting stone.
You can also make a difference to the way you impact the environment; Ben West of Landscaping Solutions has written a brilliant article where he discusses what the wider industry can do.
The brochure is awash with inspiring images of our award-winning range of products
Giving You More For Less
As you would have read in our earlier blog, 2020 see us putting money back in your pocket. Our brochure features all the ways in which we are looking to save you money this year and beyond. We have again bucked the industry trend and have been able to freeze prices across almost all of our ranges. We also continue to offer free nationwide delivery – helping delivery to your schemes all over the UK.
Some less obvious ways in which we are helping to improve our service and save you money include the reduction of our bespoke lead times - getting our products to you quicker. We have introduced a ten year guarantee on all of our porcelain paving products.
2019 saw London Stone work with some of the best designers and landscapers in the world across the RHS shows
For 2020 we are introducing more new products than ever before as well as expanding our current ranges. Details of all our exciting new products can be found in the brochure. Porcelain is increasingly becoming a designer and landscaper favourite, and owing to this popularity we have introduced a variety of new porcelain options. To our Premium Porcelain range, we have added two new ‘Florence’ colours. In our more affordable Project Porcelain collection, you will find six new colour options. Large Format Porcelain is an intriguing new, on-trend porcelain that has been added to our product list.
Completely new to our product selection this year is our extensive fencing collections. Our fencing includes Cedar and Softwood Fencing (going live on the website soon!). We are also stocking complementary gates, posts, locks, and everything you need to complete the job.
Taking things back to paving basics we are also introducing Clay Pavers. The pavers give an authentic feel to contemporary designs, and are available in four distinctive colours.
