How will my items be packaged?
We stopped using single use plastics, including plastic packaging, back in 2020. On occasions where your custom merchandise needs to be individually packaged, to ensure that it's protected in transit, we use fully compostable and recyclable paper bags that are made from FSC accredited, natural and renewable sources.

We looked at eco-friendly biodegradable plastic bags and small countertop style paper bags and found that our choice of paper bag, although still not better than no packaging, was significantly kinder to the environment than biodegradable plastics.

Bioplastics are either compostable OR recyclable, whereas paper is biodegradable AND recyclable, and can be recycled and reused up to 6 or 7 times before the paper fibres can no longer be used for paper production.

Since our establishment in 2007, our core mission has been to provide custom manufacturing services that not only look good, but also prioritise the well-being of our planet.

It's important to understand the impact that transporting your goods can have on the environment.

By establishing manufacturing services in the UK, we significantly reduce the carbon footprint associated with transportation.

Central to our ethos is the use of eco-friendly materials, reflecting our commitment to sustainability.

We believe in providing eco conscious creators with manufacturing services that are gentler on the environment.

The materials that we use to produce your custom merchandise include recycled acrylics that were destined for landfill and incineration, recycled metals and FSC certified woods and papers, ensuring a sustainable choice in every aspect of our offerings.
