At Overton Automotive, a longstanding business in the Aberdeen community, we have been modernising and expanding our operations while maintaining a history we are proud of. One way we’ve been doing this is by partnering with the Trinity Centre to reduce our carbon footprint. The Trinity Centre supplies Overton Automotive with used shipping pallets, which we then use as packing material for larger car part orders. This mutually beneficial arrangement helps both businesses dispose of large quantities of wood in an environmentally friendly way.
By reducing our carbon footprint, we’re helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions which helps to slow down the rate of climate change. Not only this, reducing our carbon footprint can also have positive impacts on our health. By reducing air pollution and promoting clean energy, we can improve air quality and reduce the risk of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.
It’s a win-win for both individuals and the environment. By taking action to reduce our emissions, we can help to create a more sustainable and equitable future for ourselves and future generations.
The Easter Egg Appeal
In addition to our eco-friendly practices, Overton Automotive’s team members are also involved in the community. This year, our Ecommerce Team Leader, Scott Fowler, proudly participated in the Trinity Centre’s Easter Egg Appeal. The appeal has been running for over two decades now, and we are so pleased to be a part of it.
The Easter Eggs are collected and distributed to over 80 different organisations including children’s charities, hospitals, hostels, crèches and family centres all in the North East of Scotland.
At Overton Automotive, combining community involvement with environmentally conscious practices is just one way we’re paving the way for a more sustainable future.
Scott says, “With the current business climate in and around Aberdeen, I think it’s great to see local businesses working together no matter the scale to benefit each other and the community they serve.
When Linda reached out to us about the Easter appeal, it was something we were more than happy to contribute to. It has been a tough time over the last few years for a lot of people, and if we can have a positive impact in any way, especially when it comes to children in need, we wholeheartedly support that.
One of the core values of the company is to go above and beyond for our customers and we are just so pleased to be involved with the Easter Appeal.
We’d love to give a huge thank you to Linda for getting in touch and to all the Trinity Centre staff that help not only us, but countless other businesses.”
If you are visiting the Trinity Centre you can drop your Easter eggs in the giant Egg collection box on the mall floor.
