Alastair Machin, Managing Director said: “We are passionate about supporting local causes. Staffordshire Wildlife Trust does a fantastic job in protecting our wildlife and natural habitats and we are delighted to be able to support their work.“

Alastair added: “Our confidential destruction is certified to BS EN 15713 and 100 per cent of the paper that is shredded gets recycled. For every tonne of paper that gets recycled back into the paper supply chain means that 17 trees are not cut down for making paper.”

Chaffinch Document will be making a donation for every tonne of shredded paper recycled to Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, and this money will be used specifically to support initiatives at Westport Lake, Stoke-on-Trent. Staffordshire Wildlife Trust will be running a celebration event at the lake for young people and their families in 2018, designed to raise awareness of the local environment.

Last year a similar event attracted 350 children plus grown-ups, and helped to celebrate and highlight all that the Westport Lake Visitor Centre has to offer. Children and adults got involved in a range of activities from den-building to bug-hunting.

Chaffinch Document will take their mobile shredder to the event so that visitors can shred and recycle their paper at no cost raise awareness of data protection and avoid sensitive information being disposed of in general waste.

James Dennison, fundraising and membership manager at Staffordshire Wildlife Trust added: “We are extremely pleased to be working with Alastair and the team at Chaffinch Document. Working with a local business to protect our natural habitats is an extremely important strand of our work. It allows a business to demonstrate environmental and social commitment to the environment in which its employees live and work.”
