A healthy planet plays a crucial role in the future growth of Astro, so we are actively looking at ways to minimize our footprint on the environment.
Polystyrene is a thing of the past thanks to a new origami-style inner fitment, constructed entirely from a recycled-mix cardboard. We've also made sure our screws are now in a recycled cardboard packet, rather than plastic bag, as well as reducing the amount of printer ink we use by around 40%, simply by swapping from a four-color label to a black and white alternative.
As part of our commitment to reduce our overall carbon emissions, we have installed over 460 solar panels across the roof of Astro HQ in Harlow, UK. The panels generate the equivalent of our annual electricity usage, so are helping us move towards carbon neutrality.
