We don't currently provide a gift-wrapping service. All of our products come supplied in branded eco-friendly packaging (unless you choose to use our reused packaging option).
What is the reused packaging option?
To help us be as eco-friendly as possible, we give you an option of selecting a 'reused packaging' option when you checkout.

What makes you eco-friendly?
You can find out more on our About Us page. We think about how we can be eco-conscious in all aspects of our business and it is core to our purpose. Every single one of our products was designed or curated because it is sustainable. As such, you will find information about how a product is eco-friendly or sustainable for every product in their description. This may be from how it was grown and sourced, the materials used and the production.
Our office is powered by 100% renewable electricity and all our packaging is eco-conscious, plastic-free and recyclable - please read on for more information on this.
We also support environmental and wildlife charities. We donate 10% of our profits towards charity (partnership to be accounted shortly - please sign up to the mailing list for updates), we work with responsible suppliers and we donate our old ink cartridges to raise funds for Whale and Dolphin Conservation. Any supplier packaging we cannot reuse is responsibly recycled. All of our items are free from animal products and are vegan friendly.
Is your packaging environmentally friendly?
We send all our orders using brown recycled cardboard boxes or envelopes. We then use recycled brown paper, recycled shredded paper or compostable peanuts to protect our products in the boxes. Envelopes used are also made from 100% recycled paper. We use paper tape to seal our boxes so everything is recyclable and biodegradable. We send receipts and delivery notes electronically; please message us if you want a printed receipt included. Any branding on packaging is hand stamped using plant-based, vegan, non-toxic ink.
To be as environmentally friendly as we can, we give you an option of selecting a 'reused packaging' option. If you tick this, we look to reuse any boxes or packaging we have from our suppliers if we have any that is suitable. This packaging won't look as pretty as our branded packaging but it does help to reduce, reuse and recycle. If you would like this, please tick this option on our checkout (not available via PayPal checkout).
What recycling do you do?
All our packaging is recyclable, compostable or biodegradable. Please check with your local council for details of their recycling programmes and what can be accepted.
Any supplier packaging we receive we aim to reuse and if it cannot be re-used we look to recycle or compost it.
We recycle all our old ink cartridges to prevent them from going to landfill. We recycle the cartridges by donating them to Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC) via The Recycling Factory. Whale and Dolphin Conservation is a global charity dedicated to the conservation and protection of whales and dolphins. Should the cartridges not be on the eligible list via the Recycling Factory at the time of donating, we will donate to another recycling programme and donate all proceeds to charity.
