All of the craft kits are plastic free and contain only the yarns needed and wooden tools. The Fruit & Veg Pouch pair kit is designed to have the finished bags be used instead of single use plastic bags at the shops. The 100% British wool used in some of the kits is sourced from a UK company that are responsible for the yarn making process in-house from start to finish. This will also naturally biodegrade at the end of its life.Ethical ConsiderationsWe challenge our suppliers to report any ethical issues they identifyReports and information are requested.Enviromental ImpactOur products are created to help consumers try and reduce their carbon footprintWe have a sustainability policyWe consider the environmental impact when creating our productsSome of the processes we use to manufacture products are energy efficientSome of the processes we use to manufacture products are water efficient
