Currently all of our stock is packaged in biodegradable and compostable films – though we are conscious of the fact that without the correct disposal (i.e. in a compost bin) they do not bio-degrade properly. The industry has complex feelings regarding cello wrapped cards. There are obvious reasons why they are preferred by retailers – who stock and display the cards and understandably don’t want them damaged if they are displayed without the wrapping.
We deliver orders with the minimum packaging – very often recycling the packaging we have received. The boxes used, in our boxed cards range, are made from recycled paper and can themselves be used again and again, or recycled.
All of our products are printed in Ledbury. We use water-based inks on FSC-certified card stock without any embellishments and they are all recyclable. Our envelopes are the same.
We also transform all unsold stock into new products – this is how our gift tags came about!
Ledbury Letterpress is also proud to be supporting Offset Earth, an organisation that aims to fund the world’s best climate crisis solutions and plant trees.
