Sustainability

Eco-friendly provision of services

🧵I only choose fabrics which are natural and do not have any plastic elements such as viscose.  Currently, 100% cotton, 100% linen and a mix of the two are in stock as well as hemp silk which is a truly sustainable fabric.  I will continue to source beautiful fabrics which are natural.  

✂️I am also very proud to stock The Crafty Kit Company who have been awarded the “Best Sustainable Craft Company” in the Craft Business Awards, January 2021.  

🌿Our household makes as many eco-friendly household decisions as possible and we are very conscious about recycling. This naturally extends to the business. We spent a long time looking into our packaging to ensure that it has a low carbon footprint and is recyclable.

🌿Each bundle of fabric is wrapped in recycled tissue paper and secured with a totally chlorine free biodegradable sticker.

🌿The stickers are printed with eco-friendly toners.

🌿The tissue paper is made from 99% recycled pulp fibres. Approximately 35% of the electricity used to make this product is produced from renewable sources.

🌿Each bundle of fabric is secured with raffia tape which is fully compostable. 

💝It is then wrapped in hard wearing brown paper and sealed with paper tape.

🌿The Kraft paper is 100% recycled, unbleached and unwaxed.  

🌿The tape uses a natural rubber based adhesive on a renewable resource of Kraft paper. The tape can be left on the brown paper packaging for recycling. It can also be composted but it’s recommended by the manufacturer that it is recycled as this way it could be reused up to 7 times.

🌿Alternatively your order might arrive in an paper envelope or mailing bag which are reusable, recyclable and biodegradable making them a great alternative to plastic lined mailing bags.

🌿An email is sent to confirm the order has been dispatched.

💌 Finally, your order is sent via Royal Mail which utilises an existing nationwide network and so therefore minimising additional car usage.  From my door to your door!
