page eight Strata StonesOur commitment to Ethical Trading Packaging Stone Age has been at the forefront of innovative changes in packing methodology. Our innovative methods have been so successful that many other companies have followed suit. In our effort to conform to the health and safety standards both in India and abroad, we have implemented numerous changes. One example is the use of plastic banding in place of metal, thereby reducing the risk of cuts and injuries. Safety and environmental issues are uppermost in our minds. We have reduced the usage of timber in our crates by as much as 30%! This has not only eased the struggle faced while emptying the crates but has also reduced the felling of trees. Stone Age is fully committed to controlling environment pollution and deforestation. Packaging Shipping House keeping
Our commitment to Ethical TradingStrata Stones page nine Shipping At Stone Age we have our own shipping department. This department is responsible for the correct loading of crates in to the containers before they are loaded on to the vessel and we also carry out our own customs clearance. This allows us to ensure that the crates reach the final destination in good condition. House keeping As can be seen, the pictures ably illustrate the fact that our standards of housekeeping are extremely high and meet the international guidelines. Our housekeeping has been admired by a lot of our international clients.
