SUSTAINABILITY

 

MATERIALS/PACKAGING

My products are made using various materials and each component can be treated in a number of ways to make it a sustainable product.

Cards, Envelopes & Notebooks

  • Cards, envelopes and notebooks are made with FSC approved paper that is either recycled card, or card that can be recycled - please recycle.

  • You may wish to reuse your cards, some ideas for this are - re-gift, cut up to create a notecard or pop in a frame.

Greeting Card Sleeves

  • Cards will come packaged in clear bio-degradable corn/potato starch sleeves which are biodegradable & compostable - please put in your waste bin or compost heap.

Delivery Packaging

  • Product are packaged for delivery using recycled labels, recycled tissue paper, recycled cardboard boxes and secured using biodegradable self adhesive paper tape.

  • Branded stickers are not currently made of recycled materials while they are in stock, new sustainable stickers will be used in future.

PRINTING

Products are printed in the UK and the paper used is FSC approved. The print company is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), an international organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world's forests.

THE FUTURE

I am continuing to educate myself in the environmental impact of the products I create and I do aim to use sustainable options while making great quality products.
