Our environmental commitment

Working together to do more

Our commitment to you

To us sustainability is part of running a responsible business and we are working to ensure that we operate in an ethical, transparent and responsible way. Whether that be by making small changes in the office, our supply chain, or by working with charitable organisations - you know that you’re working with a company that cares.

we are a carbon neutral business

We are carbon neutral

We’ve been awarded our 2020/2021 certificate by Carbon Neutral Britain, officially confirming we're doing our part in offsetting more than we produce through our partnership with treepoints. Treepoints work with charities and organisations globally, to offset our carbon footprint by planting trees, supporting local communities in reducing their reliance on fossil fuels, and creating more renewable energy sources.

Increasing our cards lifespan

By extending the lifespan of our cards from 3 to 5 years we are reducing our plastic waste and our carbon requirements in producing and delivering our cards, resulting in an overall reduction of our footprint.

Removing more than we produce

We know our cards contain plastic, and are working on different solutions to reduce this. In the meantime, we're focussed on reducing the impact of our cards, and have committed to removing 2.5 times the plastic we produce every year. We do this by supporting Plastic Bank who recover and recycle ocean bound plastic.
