If you live in the UK or the Republic of Ireland, you’ve surely seen one of the 700 Argos locations. They serve millions of customers, but they try to minimize the impact such a large business has on the earth. They practice “responsible retailing” by recycling 87% of the waste they produce; encouraging their customers to recycle packing and products and even the plastic bags they carry goods home in; and by using sustainable, legal sources of the wood they use. They give back to the community other ways, too, with their support of the Teenage Cancer Trust, whose mission is to make sure “every young cancer patient has access to the best possible care and professional support from the point of diagnosis.”
Argos offers a wide variety of products – from home entertainment products like Sony TVs to clothing to kitchen gadgets and everything in between. You can shop for 60-inch TVs with Argos, buy new bedroom furniture, baby clothing, or even sporting equipment in their local stores or in their online store. And you know Argos is doing their part to help improve your communities.
