  • Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plans
    Sustainability is one of our core values.
    Sustainability initiatives
    We have three current initiatives: source all components from within the UK, minimise plastic, use recycled materials where possible.
    Pledges for the year
    We are aiming to source all products manufactured this year from 100% UK manufactured components. This is very hard to do so we don't know if we will achieve it, but it is our aim.
    Sustainable Products
    Hand Made Card Kits
    Our hand made card kits are made with FSC certified card, the packaging is made from recycled card, includes glue stick made from recycled plastic.
    Social equity at your company
    We are very small so we only have a few staff, but we make sure they are happy and well looked after.
    We are in the process of making our packaging plastic free
    We are introducing a new range of card games in tins in order to remove plastic from the packaging.
    We have products made from recycled materials
    The glue sticks included in our card kits are made from recycled plastic, and the card inserts in the box are made from recycled card. Our aim is to use recycled paper and card for printing where possible.
    Ethical Considerations
    Fair wages are paid to the people who make our products
    Our products are made by people employed in good working conditions
    We work hard to find UK based suppliers and manufacturers that we can visit to ensure they look after their workforce, and to save shipping things round the world. I can't overstate how hard it is though, it feels like hardly anything is made in the UK these days. We are hoping that in the future the UK will have a thriving manufacturing industry again and we'll reduce the amount of things we import, massively reducing the environmental impact of transport - we are supporting that change.
    Enviromental Impact
    We consider the environmental impact when creating our products
    We are actively working to reduce our carbon impact by making products from components manufactured in the UK, however this is very difficult. That's our aim - the bigger we get, the more achievable this becomes.
