What I'm Doing To Be More Sustainable

We all need to do our bit for the environment. I try as much as possible to source all the supplies I need in my business with sustainability in mind! I’m not perfect and I know I’ve got a way to go to make my business entirely environmentally-friendly, but I am beginning to take the steps forward to change that.

These are the choices I’ve made along the way:

Packaging

Tiny Box Company – I get all my packaging supplies from them. I make sure I buy the products that are completely recyclable and are at least 40% made from recycled materials.

I do occasionally use Jiffy bags which have a little bubble wrap on the inside. I will be using these until I run out (because it’d be even more of a waste if they were never used!). I will be switching to an eco-friendly option once I have gone through what I currently have.

Printed Items

instantprint – I get all of my printed materials from this company. All of their paper is from FSC certified suppliers and they are working towards reducing their impact on the environment with yearly inspections.

Embroidery Supplies

  1. Kona Cotton Fabric – 100% cotton. It’s processed and tested for harmful substances and is certified to meet Oeko-Tex(R) Standard 100.
  2. Elbesee Embroidery Hoops – the wood for their hoops come from FSC certified suppliers which means they are made out of sustainably sourced wood.

I will be keeping this page updated with the supplies and companies I use. If there is anything you can suggest I do to reduce the enviromental impact within my business then I am all ears!
