ENVIRONMENTAL PRACTICES & POLICES
We continually strive to reduce our environmental footprint.
- All of our greeting cards and paper products are printed LOCALLY within a mile of our offices, using carbon captured sustainable card and paper stock.
- All greeting cards are produced under the Woodland Carbon Code
- Envelopes our made from 100% recycled and FSC sources and in the UK.
- Wherever possible we up-cycle cardboard packaging for re-use and those boxes we can no longer use are shredded and used for animal bedding which then enters our composting system.
- Old greeting cards are shredded and sent back for repulping.
- All of our gift products are manufactured in the UK.
- A large proportion of our electricity is generated from solar.
- We are continually looking at ways of reducing the use of plastics in packaging and have been trialling NATIVA biodegradable cellophanes on our Bumblee seed greeting cards
- A proportion of profits are directed towards our own tree and hedgerow planting projects with 400 trees in 2021 and 300 in 2022 and the creation of a small wildlife pond. In Hampshire we are involved in a rewilding project, with 70 acres of chalk downland being designated to a naturally regenerated Platinum Jubilee Woodland at Tidgrove
