Eco-friendly DIY wedding and party supplies, seeded and recycled papers
We are passionate about the environment and the plight of our native British wildflowers, butterflies, bees and other insects. We want to do our little bit to help by encouraging people to grow more nectar-rich flowers and to use recycled papers and eco-friendly stationery – all to help save our beautiful planet.
On our website you will find tree-free lokta products made in Nepal, lots of recycled products, plantable seed papers and other miscellaneous accessories for crafting, card-making, DIY wedding stationery and so on. We also have an eco-wedding business supplying the products you will find on this website, but also recycled seed packet wedding favours and plantable seed paper wedding stationery – if you have stumbled across our paper site whilst looking for wedding products then please do nip on to that website too via the menu at the top of the page.
In addition, we also supply business and charities with recycled seed packets and seed paper products for promotional purposes – please visit our dedicated promotions site for further information.
Eco Business Ethos – Wildflower Papers
We want to spread the word about wildflowers and how important they are to biodiversity. Some insects rely on only one species of wildflower, for example, and once that wildflower becomes extinct or severely endangered, then so does the life of that insect species. Growing wildflowers in your garden is a small but important step in helping our native wildlife. After all, every little helps! Our blogs will often relate to these issues so we hope you will find them of interest.
We recycle all packaging we receive so don’t be surprised if your order arrives in a pre-used box or package! We also minimise our use of packaging as much as we can so if, for example, you ordered 3 of something you might find it all in one package rather than 3. Far too much packaging goes to landfill and it is so unnecessary. We hope you will also recycle further any packaging you receive from us! We are gradually getting rid of cellophane for packagin our seed paper products and we have now replaced A4 and A5 sizes with a corn starch mix which will biodegrade. Once the A6 cello bags are used up these too will be replaced with a biodegradable version. The tape used to package our boxes is also biodegradable, as is the greeny-coloured bubblewrap we use.
We also compost any paper offcuts etc that can’t be reused. Being run by myself as a vegan, products that are cruelty-free are also important.
Via our wedding website, we support many environmental charities such as Bumblebee Conservation, Friends of the Earth and Buglife – to name but a few. We also support our local sheep rescue – here I am with one of the sheep that happily live there in safety.
