We try to use completely recycled, bio-degradable and compostable materials and packaging wherever possible (our trademarked three fish logo is based on the more traditional recycling symbol). Here is some more information about the materials we use:
Our lovely clear bags are fully bio-degradable and as "green" as packaging can get. You can either put them into your green waste collection, or within 4-6 weeks they completely disappear into carbon dioxide and water when composted! They are made from potato or corn starch.
Our colourful garden twine (used on our gift tags) is fully natural and sustainably produced from Mulberry leaves in Bangladesh. Either use reuse it for use in your garden or it will fully break down within 6-8 weeks in the compost bin.
All of the card, cardboard packaging and paper we use is made from 75-100% sustainably recycled sources - mostly from the surplus generated from the printing and publishing trades. and fully breakes down within 6-8 weeks when composted.
Please note this applies only to "gift tags" at the moment.
