OUR PACKAGING & MATERIALS

VEGETABLE STARCH FILM BAGS

Most of our products arrive packaged in a protective film bag. The bags are made from sustainable vegetable starch and are fully biodegradable and compostable. Although this product will decompose in a home composter (or in landfill), industrial composting speeds up the process to approx 45 days.

RECYCLED CARD & PAPER

All of the recycled fibre used in our card, envelope and paper stock is made from 100% post consumer waste. These are not dyed or bleached using any chlorine, the colour is achieved by matching raw waste materials and so can vary in shade slightly. We therefore cannot always guarantee a perfect colour match from order to order.

ADHESIVE LABELS & STICKERS

Our 'Plant Me' stickers are made from 100% recycled paper with a water based acrylic adhesive. The label paper is recyclable and compostable.

Our product labels are entirely wood free, made from 95% sugar cane fibres and 5% hemp and linen.  The adhesive is acrylic based, biodegradable and compostable, and the backing paper is glassine paper.

NATURAL JUTE & COTTON TWINE

Jute is a natural organic fibre obtained from plants. It is 100% biodegradable, recyclable and harvested from renewable resources. The jute we use is wound in Scotland. Our cotton twine is also a natural and renewable resource.

PAPER TAPE

Our printed paper tape is an eco-friendly alternative to plastic cellotape manufactured using recycled paper, water soluble ink and a natural rubber based adhesive. This product can be home composted but recycling it would be greener as this way it can be reused again and again before biodegrading.

REINDEER POOP PAPER

This 280gsm paper has been milled in England using real reindeer poop! The ultimate in recycled paper!

POSTAL ENVELOPES

The envelopes we use to ship your products are 100% recyclable and almost entirely produced from post consumer (the greenest) waste.
