Our cards are printed locally here in Cornwall using vegetable inks on FSC approved board and paired with a recycled kraft envelope. We are very proud to work with a local printer, who are recognised as one of the UK’s most sustainable printing companies and offset their entire operational carbon footprint to have become one of a handful of Official World Land Trust Carbon Balanced Printers in the UK.
The foil used in our foiled greeting cards is 100% recyclable and our printers have recently committed to recycling 100% of their foil waste through the “Zero Foil 2 Landfill” scheme.
For direct to customer orders, we do not use cellophane sleeves and instead use 'Kard Klasps'. We also offer this option to our wholesale stockists, but where cellophane sleeves are requested, we use a biodegradable alternative.
Being eco friendly is at the forefront of our minds when it comes to packaging your orders. We use recycled board wherever possible, which is fully recyclable. For sets of cards and prints, we use a biodegradable sleeve, a glassine sleeve or tissue paper, which is 100% recyclable and/or biodegradable.
Our tissue paper is printed on FSC certified, acid free paper with soy based inks.
For wholesale orders, we re-use as much packaging as possible from deliveries that we have received. Our tape is eco friendly and if we are ever to use bubble wrap, it will only ever be re-using wrap we have received in deliveries ourselves, but we try to minimise this and use recyclable alternatives whenever possible.
