I'm very excited to tell you that I've partnered up with Ecologi so when you make a purchase on my website a tree will be planted! And the best thing is, there is no extra cost to you!
This week was World Earth Week and a number of my small biz pals were talking about Ecologi who are a social enterprise that fund reforestation and carbon offsetting projects around the world.
I did some research and I am really impressed with the work they do, which you can read about here. They also make it really easy for businesses to set up so it's all done automatically.
I am passionate about doing what I can to restore our planet. Little changes can lead to a big difference so I am so excited that a tree will be planted with every order on my website.
There is a tree counter on my home page to see how many we've planted and you can click through to see the virtual representation of the actual trees planted!
Here are some of the other things I do in my business to reduce the impact on the planet....
🌍 Plastic Free Packaging
All orders are wrapped in recyclable paper bags / tissue paper and posted in recyclable envelopes and boxes.
I use biodegradable/compostable bags to protect the A4 prints. If you have received an order in a postal bag they are biodegradable.
♻️I reuse the packaging I receive.
If you do receive an order with bubble wrap, I'd rather reuse it than throw it away.
🌍 Most of my suppliers are based in the UK reducing my carbon footprint. The exception is the Washi tape.
♻️ My cards are from FSC approved suppliers.
I am not perfect and I still have improvements to make but I'm continuing to make changes and learn how I can do better.
