Displaysense Has Joined The Many Number Of Companies That Are Having To Find Ways Of Being More Efficient And Save Money In The Current Economic Climate By Not Only Investing In A Waste Disposal System But Also Aiming To Make Money From Their Waste

Displaysense, the Hertfordshire-based retail company, has joined the many number of companies that are having to find ways of being more efficient and save money in the current economic climate by not only investing in a waste disposal system but also aiming to make money from their waste.

Displaysense, the UK’s leading supplier of display cabinets and other shop fittings, have recently invested in a new waste compactor and waste recycling service which not only reduces the amount of cardboard and plastics heading to landfill, but also helps reduce the number of trips regular waste disposal lorries have to make to the company’s warehouse.

The company, who originally used a 12cy skipping service, now uses its new compactor, reducing company costs by nearly 70% and saving hundreds of pounds. The compactor not only helps to cut down costs, but the amount of bulk waste has also been reduced down to two small pale loads of cardboard and plastic per week, which is a great help when disposing of some of the companies used mannequin boxes.

Not only is the company saving money but there are certain companies in the UK that buy compacted waste and Displaysense are now working with one such company.

Stuart Parnis, the warehouse manager at Displaysense commented on the success of the new compactor by saying, “We don’t make a lot from selling our waste but it helps to pay off the cost of the waste compactor. I feel a little like the Wombles, as we are making good use of what others regard as rubbish.”

Stuart added: “Since we introduced the new compactor in March, we have already noticed how efficient it is making certain processes within the warehouse, by reducing the time spent having to deal with collections.”

Displaysense, who now only require a small bin outside their warehouse doors for unrecyclable waste, are keen to see how many more savings they can make with further green technologies to help recycle some of their other items such as the plastics from returned clothes rails.

With a new website introduced in March of this year and 20,000 more products added to its range, it has already been a big year for change at Displaysense and it seems that there are even more ideas coming in the pipeline that won’t go to waste.

Elemis Has Announced Details Of Its New See The Difference Eye Duo Set, Featuring Products Designed To Prevent The Signs Of Stress, Tiredness And Ageing Around The Eye Area

The new limited edition eye care set from Elemis features an Absolute Eye Serum, containing absolutes of rosewood, osmanthus, lavender and chamomile which helps to decongest and reduce dark circles and puffiness around the eye area whilst gently preserving, lifting and refining the eye tissue.

Also contained within the set f r o m Elemis is Pro Collagen Eye Renewal, a lightweight cream-gel that’s clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area by up to 60% in just 28 days*.

When combined, the Absolute Eye Serum and Pro Collagen Eye Renewal Cream create a synergy of potent seaweeds to help moisturise and increase the firmness of the skin around the eyes.

Both products are recommended to be applied by gently dabbing around the eye contour using the ring finger as this yields the lightest pressure to avoid dragging the delicate skin around the eye. When used as part of a daily regime in the morning and evening the ‘See the Difference’ Eye Duo can help to protect and repair the skin around the eyes, preventing signs of stress and ageing.

The ‘See the Difference’ Eye Duo is a strictly limited edition and will only be available f r o m the 4th – 31st May at spas, salons, selected retail outlets nationwide and online, and comes presented in a faux leather jewellery box.

*Data taken f r o m independent clinical trials carried out in 2005

Barbara Hulanicki Collection At Topshop

Topshop is renowned for working with style heroes of the past, present and future, and this spring marks its coming together with Barbara Hulanicki. Continuing from where she left off in the 70s, Barbara Hulanicki rejoins the fashion world with a new series of clothes for Topshop.

Barbara Hulanicki

While rich with reminders of Biba in its heyday, the collection is a distinct move away from the pretty designs of the past. Clothes are brought up to date by modern prints and edgier shapes for a new generation of fans, making Hulanicki one of the most influential and inspirational style icons of the 20th century.

Having spent the last 15 years designing furniture and hotels worldwide, Hulanicki has reverted back to her first love of fashion illustration as the starting point for the collection. The enchanting ‘ladybug’ and ‘headscarf girl’ designs appear on delicate chiffons, the bold ‘enlarged animal print’ is splashed over silks and jerseys, and quirky large placement sketches of fashion girls stand out on T-shirts and accessories.

The Hulanicki collection takes on a split personality of Good Girl/Bad Girl dressing.

A playful, floaty silhouette in bright coral, pink and pale turquoise tones characterises the Good Girl. A flirty printed dress with Hulanicki’s trademark elegant puff shoulders is echoed by daringly short skater skirts, culottes and playsuits in chiffons and silks. Billowing smock blouses are grown up, while a bright pink ‘ladybug’ print cropped corset top and coral animal print body are aimed at the younger customer. The dramatic black maxi jumpsuit with tie shoulders is the stand out piece and most reminiscent of the collection’s 1970s origins.

A seductive off-the-shoulder body-con dress in lilac jersey with a teasing print on the bust appeals to the collection’s Bad Girl. Mini dresses are bandeau or halter neck in figure hugging jersey for a laid-back sexy look, and a cropped suede jacket with matching high-waist hot pants in khaki. The large prints used on these clothes are repeated on several simple jersey T-shirts for a more accessible and casual take on the look.

Beachwear finishes off the womens clothing collection with a ‘headscarf lady’ printed retro-shaped bikini set and oversized floppy sun hat in either bright or pale pink, and a large beach bag emblazoned with the ‘silhouette girl’.

On her collaboration with Topshop Barbara said: “Top Shop has always been the first shopping stop when I am in London. They work in the same fast thinking, ‘It won’t be there the next time so make a snap decision’ attitude that we developed in the 60s and 70s.”

Mary Homer, managing director of Topshop added: “It is an honour to be working with one of my own personal fashion heroes. Barbara’s approach to fashion is as bold and inspirational now as it was in the 70s. The team has loved working with her and I know our customers will love this collection”

The new Hulanicki collection will be on sale from the end of April.

Found online at www.thaisilkbox.com, Thai Silk Box’s new storefront provides a larger selection of unique wedding invitations, and an easier-to-use interface for individuals seeking custom-designed wedding invitations.

thaisilkbox.com

Entering into 2009, Thai Silk Box was able to experience financial and physical growth in 2008, even amongst the economic downturns experienced throughout the world during that period. With over 1,000 orders processed in 2008, primarily in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia, this physical and financial increase has purportedly positioned the company to break into the top-class wedding invitation business.

As per a company representative, the reason for the company’s growth last year, and continuing growth this year, is due to the quality of materials used in manufacturing their wedding invitations, their ability to cater to their customers’ exact requirements with custom orders, and their strong, Thai-operated, management team. As Thai Silk Box is located in Thailand, the company plays an active role in fighting against companies who utilize illegal workers, and companies who pay unfair wages to its workers.

Thai Silk Box’s new storefront, and additional inventory, is available for viewing at www.thaisilkbox.com

About Thai Silk Box
Established in 2002 by Asia Business Alliance Co. LTD, an international trading company, Thai Silk Box offers high-end wedding invitations and custom, Thai-artesian designed invitations for individuals around the world.
