  • Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plans
    The very ethos of seedlings was to create a card & gift company which would 'give back' to the environment. Sustainability and the environment is at the forefront of our minds from conception of an idea to delivery and waste management. We are proud to have an ethical and environmental policy which we are committed to and review periodically in order to constantly address areas where we might improve.
    Sustainability initiatives
    We source materials from within the U.K and use seed which is British in origin and grown without the use of pesticides. We have our recyclable waste collected from the workplace via a pedi-cargo service which uses pedal power to collect business waste. We employ a small team of local people and consistently update and review our ethical and environmental policies.
    Pledges for the year
    We hope to build upon our initiatives to encourage the growing of native species of wildflower in the U.k in order to provide our declining wildlife species with a home for years to come. We hope to educate consumers on making informed choices when buying cards and gifts and hope to connect with more local growing initiatives and grassroots movements. We are also looking at using natural starches as adhesives within our manufacturing processes and further reducing our waste.
    Sustainable Products
    Wildflower Seed Cards
    All our Seed cards feature British-grown Wildflower seed packets which are grown from sites around the U.k. The envelopes we use are 100% recycled content and our wraps and bags are made from sustainable pine starch celluose. Making the whole of this product compostable.
    Bucket Bouquet Growing Gift
    Like all our seed kits our 'Bucket Bouquet' gift set is completely plastic free and contains british-grown wildflower seeds which will bloom together along with peat-free coco coir compost disks. This is all packaged within a bio-degradable pot which can be used to sow the seeds into.
    Year Seed Calendars
    Our popular seed calendars encourage people to sow and grow throughout the year. Packaged in plastic-free card sleeves and containing British-grown wildflower seeds to plant each month.
    AT THE FAIR
    Social equity at your company
    We adhere to a strict ethical policy and take health and safety very seriously within the workplace. We encourage first aid training with employees and regularly check in on their wellbeing. Being a small team we are very much like a small family and we enjoy getting involved with community initiatives. We have recently collaborated with Hereford Art College on producing some supporting material for our SeedFolk Children's range and hope to be involved in community Seed swaps and information sharing in the future.
