The Eco Fund is funded by DPD’s circular economy initiative to protect the environment.
The plastic shrink wrap they use is broken down, and then recycled to create new plastic shrink wrap. DPD also re-use and recycle the wooden pallets used in depots and the money generated from both these initiatives goes straight into the Eco Fund.
Anyone can apply for funding from the DPD Eco Fund, although they particularly encourage schools and educational facilities across the UK working on green projects with their students and start-up companies working on developing environmentally friendly products to apply.
The Eco Fund has donated over £200,000 to worthy sustainable projects since it started in January 2020
