The Loop pallets are distinctive, green, 100% FSC pallets, stronger than existing designs. They are distributed to manufacturers, who transport products on them to construction sites after paying a deposit per pallet. As pallets move through the supply chain, the deposit passes from manufacturer to merchant to end user. After being stacked and stored The Pallet LOOP collects them, reducing site clutter and returns deposits. It then repairs and recirculates them.
The product was officially launched this week at Stone Lodge School in Dartford with the support of BAM’s site and sustainability teams. Sites in the Midlands and North East are also involved while all other regions will become involved next year.
Widespread adoption of The Pallet LOOP across the construction sector would achieve approximately 40% less CO2 emissions and an estimated 75% reduction in timber usage.
