Enivronment and Sustainability
Where possible our products are manufactured in the UK. This gives us control over the quality of the products and the materials used, and minimises the amount of transport needed.

Paper packs

Our papers are printed on FSC certified, carbon-neutral paper and can be recycled with normal household paper recycling. The white paper that we use is high quality and made in a lovely paper mill in Scotland. The mill is ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) and ISO 50001 (Energy Management) compliant. The kraft paper that we use is is 100% recycled.

The packaging is made from OPP (Oriented Polypropylene) which is recyclable in some areas – please check with your local council. We are looking into biodegradable alternatives.

Stamps

Our stamps are made from photopolymer, which is non-toxic and biodegradable in the right conditions (e.g. a compost heap) but will otherwise last you a lifetime of crafting! The outer packet is recyclable in some areas – please check with your local council. The card insert can be recycled with normal household paper recycling.

Wooden embellishments

Our wooden embellishments are laser cut by us from FSC-certified MDF which is responsibly sourced and E1 emissions compliant.

The headers are made from card produced using wood from sustainable forests and can be recycled with normal household paper recycling.

Sequins

Some of our sequins are made in the UK and some are made overseas. We try to use those made in the UK where possible but sometimes use those manufactured in China where we want to bring you a special colour or design not available here. Sequins are made of plastic and not easily recyclable. We are currently researching biodegradable alternatives.

The headers are made from card produced using wood from sustainable forests and can be recycled with normal household paper recycling.

Reducing packaging waste

If you tick the ‘reduce my packaging’ option at checkout, depending on the contents of your order we will aim to reduce the amount of packaging your goodies are supplied with. Because we often make items to order, this can include things like bundling your embellishments together to save on plastic packets, not using printed headers, or re-using mail packaging. We will always ensure your items are sufficiently protected for posting

For example, if you order three packs of wooden bees, we can put them together in one plain packet. This saves on waste if you are using all the products yourself or want to store them differently. If you are giving them as gifts or want them packaged just as they appear on the website then leave this option unticked.
