1. Recycled and biodegradable wine tags
What it's made from: Recycled, biodegradable and renewable content.
Why we support it: The content used in the wine tags tell a story of their origin and the possibility of a sustainable future. The composting of biodegradable products can turn trash into rich organic material, which can improve water and nutrient retention and help grow healthier plants with less need for chemical fertilisers and pesticides.
2. Key rings and puzzles
What it's made from: Pine wood, a fast-growing species of tree making them a replaceable and renewable wood option.
Why we support it: Sustainable wood is important as it comes from sustainably managed forests that are renewable and prevent damage to ecosystems, wildlife and the trees themselves.
3. Natural cotton bags
What it's made from: All our bags are made using 100% natural cotton using non-genetically modified seeds.
Why we support it: Cotton is sustainable, renewable and biodegradable throughout its entire product life cycle, making it an excellent environmentally friendly material. By eliminating the use of pesticides, nitrogen emissions into the atmosphere are reduced by 94%. In addition to the environmental benefits, natural cotton provides a healthy working environment for the workers and small scale farmers. The cotton is also softer and safer for the skin and labour laws against child employment and forced labour are properly followed.
4. Books and pens
What it's made from: Our books are made from recycled paper and our pens are made using recycled processed wood.
Why we support it: The use of recycled paper and already processed wood aid in the effort to halt deforestation and reduce the demand for new wood.
