Ireland’s Anchor Dive Lights has already reduced its carbon footprint by minimizing plastic waste and using sustainable ways of manufacturing and distribution, but now it wants to go further.
Owner Declan Burke said: “As a family business, we decided to use the COVID-19 lockdown to evaluate and redefine our business model. As a result, we have developed the Anchor Dive Lights Trade-In Programme, because used torches, batteries and canisters have a relatively high contribution to chemical waste.”
The Trade-In Programme is simple. You can send in your old dive torch, of any brand – even if it is not working – and they will trade it in for a new Anchor model. Alternatively, they will refurbish and repair any older Anchor model.
In keeping with their sustainability policy and in order to minimize waste, any old Anchor models that are returned will be fully overhauled, refurbished and sold as ‘Anchor Used Approved’, complete with a two-year warranty.
