The Rheged Centre: selling Remarkable eco products

Eco-manufacturing company, Remarkable, is supplying its range of recycled stationery to the award-winning Lake District visitor attraction, The Rheged Centre,

The Rheged Centre is Europe’s largest grass covered building and is designed to resemble a Lakeland hill. It attracts over 400,000 visitors each year, making it Remarkable’s biggest retail contract to date.

Remarkable is supplying the Centre with notebooks made from old car tyres; pencils made from plastic cups; pens from CD cases and rulers made from biodegradable corn starch.

“We have been delighted with the way the Remarkable range has been received,” said the Centre’s stationery buyer, Kathryn Farrell.

“Customers are drawn to the bright, funky designs and the great prices, with the recycled pencils and roller ball pens selling particularly well and proving to be the best sellers since we first began stocking the products in April.

“The Remarkable message is one that sits perfectly alongside our own values. We love our environment and do whatever we can to minimise our impact on it. Wherever possible we choose products that are environmentally aware, whether they are cards made locally from recycled materials and water-based dyes or notebooks made from old car tyres.”

Remarkable founder and inventor, Ed Douglas Millar, said: “I am passionate about the environment; it’s why I do what I do. It is unfortunate today we live in a wasteful society, so if we can produce a product that gives a positive and accessible solution to people who want to do their bit then I am delighted, not only there is the market out there, but The Rheged Centre is supporting us in our mission.”
