Record breaker Ellen MacArthur joins B&Q to promote sustainability
B&Q is one of four founding partners of Dame MacArthur's new charity The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, which aims to inspire young people to re-think, re-design and build a sustainable future.

The DIY chain has set challenging targets for itself as a business, including a 15% reduction in packaging and for 90% of all waste to be reclaimed, recycled or composted by 2012.

B&Q is set to introduce its new 'best in class' eco brand Home Eco into stores this month.
