Epping Forest MP Eleanor Laing inaugurated the launch of Haslers Go Green – a new campaign created by the accountants to reduce its environmental footprint.

The Loughton-based firm has launched its latest project with the aim of reducing waste and becoming carbon neutral within the next decade.

Driven by a will to improve the environment in the local and wider community, Haslers Chartered Accountants is #ditchingtheplastic by swapping out bottled water and offering staff a branded reusable water bottle created by Premier Print and Promotions instead.

The firm is also cutting its use of plastic cutlery and polystyrene cups and is looking to replace paper towels with hand dryers, while it has also swapped from using plastic to glass milk bottles sourced locally from Ongar Dairy.

Mrs Laing said: "I am very happy to support this brilliant initiative by Haslers.  Great efforts are being made at national and international level, as the Prime Minister announced to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting but, as individuals and local organisations, we don’t have to wait to be told what to do by the Government.

"Haslers have set a tremendous example by massively reducing their use of plastic.  If each of us follows this example imagine how much waste we could avoid and what a good effect that would have on our environment."

Haslers chairman Jon O’Shea is part of the Green Team that is leading the campaign.

He said: "With the world focusing on environmental change as a result of pollution, we thought it was only right and about time that we did our own bit as well as a responsible business.

"All the money that we save from reducing our waste and energy will be ploughed back into this campaign so that we can continue to improve efficiencies and meet our goal of carbon neutrality.

"I would like to thank Eleanor for joining us at the launch of this campaign to raise local awareness of this issue and I would encourage other businesses to think about how they can improve their own green credentials."
