CRADLE TO THE GRAVE
Neptun Boot have an environmental Cradle to Grave Policy with the mining sector whereby new gumboots are supplied to mine workers and old boots have to be returned upon new boots being issued. The old boots are collected by an Approved Recycler for recycling.
The boots are washed, granulated and bagged for return to Neptun Boot where they are used again in a blend for use in basic general purpose black boots.
This policy protects the environment by reducing the possibility of boots lying in dumps or being burned in the environment.
It is Neptun Boots environmental intent to extend this policy to include the commercial and agricultural sectors in focussing on recycling.
This reduces the environmental impact as well as keeping costs down in entry level markets.
