BELCO Introduces Paperboard Gift Cards

July 6, 2024 | 3 Comments

BELCO announced that the Company will now “offer environmentally friendly paperboard gift cards.”

A spokesperson said, “The switch to new gift cards is in line with BELCO’s sustainability drive. The new cards require 95% less carbon to produce and they are reusable, recyclable and compostable. The cards are manufactured by Sweden-based Iggesund who are listed in the UN Global Compact 100 [GC100].

“BELCO gift cards can be given as gifts or to those who may need extra assistance. Funds can be added to the cards at any time by anyone. The cards can be redeemed by calling 295-5111 and speaking to one of our customer care representatives or in person at BELCO at 27 Serpentine Road.”

BELCO President Wayne Caines said: “At BELCO we are constantly seeking ways to reduce our carbon footprint and environmental impact both locally and globally. While this is a small measure, it is part of our larger strategy to become a greener Company and every little bit helps us on our journey.

“From upgrading our vehicle fleet to all electric vehicles, to encouraging paperless billing, and now offering sustainable gift cards and more, we are doing all we can to ensure that we are continuously reducing our environmental impact.”

    Are they joking? How about stop burning oil? It’s time to end this farce and get rid of Belco and move to something better. It’s also the best thing to do to lower the cost of living. We need some brave politicians to stand up and say it!

      “How about stop burning oil? ”

      Belco engines only burn oil. Are you suggesting that all Belco engines be turned off and Bermuda revert to the way things were before the First World War?

      “It’s time to end this farce and get rid of Belco”

      Ok. I nominate you to start a new electricity generating company for Bermuda.

      “We need some brave politicians to stand up and say it!”

      What will that do? Belco is a private company.

    How were these cards shipped to Bermuda? How EXACTLY do these cards require 95% less carbon to produce? Yes, a paper/cardboard card is reusable, recyclable, and compostable. Just don’t leave one in your pocket when you wash your clothes.
