Just a couple of weeks after launching its equity crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube, PALLITE, a UK-based designer and manufacturer of pallets and shipping crates, has successfully secured its initial £1 million funding target from more than 500 investors.
As previously reported, PALLITE claims its products reduce raw material use and carbon emissions to help businesses reduce their impact on the environment.
“PALLITE pallets and pallet boxes are up to 83% lighter than traditional wooden and plastic alternatives – which can weigh over 60kg – and this reduces emissions in transit. If 30,000 pallets were air freighted from the UK to New York using PALLITE rather than wooden pallets you’d reduce CO2 emissions by 4,612 tonnes.”
“And, because they use far less material, replacing every new pallet made in the UK in 2016 could have saved up to 600,000 trees. This is in the context of the UK Government’s recent commitment to plant just 130,000 trees for £10 million.”
