Sustainability

We reuse as much packaging as possible. Boxes received as deliveries are used for storage, sending out our own parcels, passed on for use by others or, where they are too damaged for reuse, they are broken up and passed on to gardeners to use as weed suppressants and in polytunnels. Paper and – on the rare occasions we receive it – plastic padding is reused in our own packaging.

Banner Books supports the aims of our neighbours in the sustainable tourism groups the Burren Ecotourism Network and Loop Head Together, both of which help to conserve the environment and improve the wellbeing of local people.
