Sustainability and accountability have always been core L+B values, yet we can all, always do so much more!
As L+B continues to grow, we become increasingly aware of our impact on the environment. We therefore thought it was worth updating you on some steps we have taken to reduce our footprint. It may be a small footprint, but we feel like we’re coming up to a growth-spurt and just like with our kids clothes we want our choices to impact and to last so we are looking to the future!
We constantly receive wonderful reviews of our packaging and the care that is taken to present your L+B goodies in the most beautiful way possible. All our packaging is fully recyclable, our tissue paper is printed with eco-friendly, water-based inks and we offer all of this complementary with every purchase.
Over lockdown and with the gift of time, we set about reviewing our packaging to ensure we were being as mindful of our impact on the world. We are now pleased to say that as standard, your item will come in our custom, compostable and fully biodegradable mailing bags. If you’re sending something as a gift then the Free Gift Wrap (with fully recyclable packaging) is still an option (just tick the box!) or you can upgrade to Luxury Gift Wrap for just £2.50 which has your product wrapped in our fully recyclable thick quality wrapping paper to match your print!
These have been expensive decisions to make but ones we feel are pivotal. They impact on our small business margins but it’s important to us and more pressingly it’s important to our customers.
Just like our snazzy new mailing bags say on the front:
“Thank you for shopping sustainably and small! Sleep well in the knowledge that your choices make a difference!”
