100% recyclable. 100% biodegradable. 100% sustainable.
Our commitment to the environment has increased in 2021, and we've now replaced our plastic tape with new biodegradable paper tape! This now means that all of your packaging from us can be recycled or composted!
Occasionally we re-use bubble wrap that is sent to us, which I hope you in turn re-use! Otherwise we use paper bubble wrap too! The leaflets we send and your order paperwork are both printed on recycled paper. We'd really appreciate it if you could also do your bit by reusing or recycling all of the packaging we send to you. The very last plastic packaging to be replaced is the plastic bags we use to put jigsaws in before they are sent to customers, and that will be in the summer once our current stash has been used up. Watch this space!!
As a company, and a family, we are keen to do our bit for the planet by helping to tackle the plastic pollution crisis. At The T Bird we have the facilities to recycle our card, plastic & paper and we even take our soup tins home for recycling! This year we have also started collecting used tea bags to be compost at home! Anything non-breakable but un-sellable, we are also saving to fill a suitcase to send with a friend to Rwanda.
We need to plant 1 trillion trees to stop climate change. It’s possible and it’s in our hands. Let’s get on with it!
Treebombs are handmade seedballs, containing native UK Alder Tree seeds which create biodiverse habitat and grow quickly into strong carbon capturing trees.
We will be sending Treebombs with all of our Gardening related orders such as our trowels and forks. Just scatter these onto open ground and thank you for helping to improve our future!
As part of our commitment to becoming a more Eco Friendly business, we've bought Splosh cleaning products to reduce our plastic and chemical use 💖 Get 15% off your order with them using code T3GFPMWEQG
We use 100% recycled, quality 3-ply toilet paper from Who Gives a Crap! which comes with zero plastic packing thus reducing our waste that little bit further! Not only that, they donate 50% of their profits to build toilets for those who need them. What's not to love 💖 If you'd like £5 off your first order, use this code
Lastly, and most recently, we have started to use a local independent milk man! We are prolific tea-drinkers here and we get through pints of the stuff, so we're really excited to be able to reduce our plastic in the kitchen too!
If there is anything else that you think we could be doing then we would LOVE to hear your recommendations! Find us on Facebook or send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope that you'll join us on this Eco Journey, and help to make our world a better place!
