Success stories



We signed up for the Green Growth Pledge to help reduce plastic waste within our organisation and help us achieve Carbon neutral status.

This past few years has seen unprecedented change in the import and export landscape. Business Wales has been supportive in helping us grow our business overseas during these challenging times.

EcoSlurps provides retail outlets, bars, and restaurants with eco-friendly products including a variety of different cutlery sets, cups, plates, bowls, and reusable and biodegradable straws.

Wanting to ensure that their carbon footprint remained low, Gerwyn Holmes, Founder of EcoSlurps, turned to Business Wales for advice on measuring their carbon footprint and liaising with local social enterprises. With advice from his sustainability adviser, he has signed up to our Green Growth Pledge.

Gerwyn is now seeing the majority of packaging becoming plastic-free, is working with companies that are ISO, BSCI and FSC accredited and has also planted hundreds of trees around the world to offset carbon emissions as they drive towards carbon neutral status.
