Using our state-of-the-art in-house branding facilities, we can ensure waste is kept to an absolute minimum. Every sheet of card we use is maximised with the minimal excess being baled and sent to be recycled. We aim to eﬃciently use every material that goes through our process. The majority of the card we use is also fully compostable, carbon balanced, biodegradable and recyclable.
Packaging & Gift Protection
We understand the importance of using eco-friendly sustainable packaging throughout all our hampers & gifts. We make the majority of our shipping boxes in-house using 100% recycled cardboard. This way we only ever make enough boxes for the job we’re working on, saving time, space and waste. One item that is regularly missed is the material used to protect your hampers, with the majority of materials not being great for the environment. Thanks to our partners at Paper Jet, we use 100% recycled eco-friendly protection paper which give our gifts fantastic transit protection. The Paper Jet system has been accredited with many eco-friendly sustainable awards, including the prestigious Blue Angel award.
We Plant One Tree With Every Order
In addition we are committed to making continuous improvements in the management of our environmental impacts. For every order purchased with us (no matter how big or small) we plant one tree just for you, with our amazing reforestation partner @treeapp_uk, we like to call this buy one, get one tree!
Our in-house baling machine crushes the equivalent of 20 commercial sized 1100L wheelie bins, into an impressive single half a ton bale. This not only saves space and reduces waste, but also improves our carbon footprint by reducing bin collections. The bales then go straight to our local cardboard recycling plant, where they are recycled and made into new cardboard sheets for future boxes.
Tackling Food Waste
Each year 2.5 billion tons of food is wasted around the world and is responsible for 10% of the global greenhouse gas emissions. With this in mind we’ve teamed up with Too Good To Go to make sure we have as little food waste as possible. Anything perishable, close to or past it’s sell by date gets distributed locally using the Too Go To Go App. Fighting food waste together!
