Diverting linen from landfill
Sheridan is aiming to reduce the amount of bed linen and towels going to landfill through the Sheridan Recycling Program. Customers are invited to return any branded old quilt covers, sheets and towels to Sheridan Boutique and Studio stores, including Sheridan Manuka.
Sheridan will recycle these items and turn them into new products that will be sold across stores later in the year. The recycling program launched on 20 February and runs to 20 March, to understand the volume of materials that will be returned before a larger scale program can be rolled out.
