PACKAGING

Packaging

I’m really proud to say that all of my packaging is 100% recyclable and biodegradable, with the large majority also being compostable, reusable and made from recycled materials! As I sell a variety of products, they all require different types of packaging, and need to be protected well because a huge chunk of my sales get sent overseas. I use no single-use plastic, and everything is bought from UK companies.

I’ve curated a list of each individual item I use for different orders below, so you’re aware of what goes into them and their sustainability.

 

Boxes and Envelopes

Everything gets sent out in either boxes or hard-backed envelopes – both of which are made out of cardboard.

 

  • Recyclable
  • Biodegradable
  • Compostable
  • Reusable

 

Paper Bags

Items like prints and stationery get sent out in paper bags.

 

  • Recyclable
  • Biodegradable
  • Compostable

Paper Stickers

I have a selection of paper stickers that I designed, which are used to close the paper bags and add a bit of fun to an otherwise plain package.

 

  • Recyclable
  • Biodegradable
  • Made from 100% recycled waste paper

 

Free Stickers

Each order comes with a free sticker, which is made from sugar cane paper! These aren’t as durable as vinyl stickers so I’d recommend using them indoors.

 

  • Recyclable
  • Biodegradable
  • Compostable

 

Free Sweets

For some orders, I sometimes throw in free sweets (lucky you!), and I’ll only choose ones that come packaged in cardboard boxes.

 

  • Recyclable
  • Biodegradable

 

Paper Tape

I use brown and white paper tape to seal up boxes, and occasionally on certain products that need the extra protection.

 

  • Recyclable
  • Biodegradable
  • Made from recycled paper

 

Tissue Paper

Some items are wrapped in tissue paper (zebra print may I add, I love it).

 

  • Recyclable
  • Biodegradable
  • Compostable

 

Crinkle Paper

For orders that need extra padding and protection, in particular international orders going a long way, I use crinkle cut zig zag paper which keeps your items from rattling around.

 

  • Recyclable
  • Biodegradable
  • Reusable

 

Thank You Cards

I like to add a little note of appreciation in my orders, which has my details on, and also a friendly reminder at the bottom that all the packaging is recyclable – in case people forget and go to throw it in the bin straight away.

 

  • Recyclable
  • Biodegradable
  • Reusable (lots of people like to hang onto these and put them on their walls!)
