Scott visits DS Packaging in Launceston

On Friday I was invited on a tour of DS Smith's packaging plant in Launceston. I was really impressed with what I saw and their plans for reducing waste and replacing plastics.

Not only was the tour impressive, but the company itself should also be commended for their role in supporting staff and the local community with its outreach programme. DS has trained staff to deal with not just first aid, but also as mental health first aiders; I felt this was a great touch.

Thanks to Shirley, the Managing Director at Launceston, for taking time out to personally show me around.
