I want the materials I use for my products and packaging to be as gentle on the planet as they can be. I strive for non-toxic, recyclable materials to create and pack my products.

Mailing tubes

Currently transitioning over to 100% cardboard, using up our current stock of metal end caps. The only plastic you will find at the moment are the end caps for the 1 metre mailing tubes.

Stickers & Tape

TapeWe only use paper tape which is accepted at all recycling centres.

StickersOur packing stickers are 100% compostable. Unfortunately sticker release liners aren't recyclable but they are made from natural materials and so are non-toxic to the environment.

Office paper & inks

Currently enquiring about the environmental specs of these inks.

Suppliers

Not only do I want the materials to be environmentally friendly but I am working to find suppliers with the same ethos that agree to send stock in packaging that contains no plastic.

Some items in my shop are commissioned and produced by companies and publishers I have created illustrations for, therefore I do not have a say in their production process. I do however, choose my clients carefully and will list as much information as I can on the individual products description page. Currently these products include all puzzles and books.

I'm constantly trying to improve so if you have any suggestions on how I can become more eco friendly, I'd love to hear from you.
