Fig & Joy is plastic free and use recycled or recyclable materials produced in the UK to create beautiful stationery. I believe that in a world where petro-chemical based single use plastics are rarely recycled and many end up inevitably in landfill or littering our countryside and oceans, using truly biodegradable and compostable bio-film can genuinely contribute to solving the environmental problem posted by the disposal of single use plastics and help create a cleaner planet.
All of my cards, notebooks and prints are designed and made in the UK using FSC approved paper which means they are made with materials from well managed forests or recycled sources. For more information please visit https://www.fsc-uk.org/en-uk
The accompanying envelopes with the greeting cards are also manufactured in the UK using FSC approved papers and a selection are manufactured from post consumer disposable coffee cups destined for landfill and transformed into beautiful paper.
I try to keep packaging to a minimum therefore your cards and accompanying envelope will be sent with an eco-friendly card clasp sticker holding them together. These card clasps are made from recyclable materials and vegan adhesive making them plastic free and damage free.
Cello bags may be used as packaging which are made in the UK from sustainable and annually renewable vegetable starch which is derived from an annually renewable crop, as opposed to petroleum-chemical based plastics which are non-renewable. Therefore offering a greener alternative to polypropylene without wasting the planets finite supply of petrochemicals and adding to greenhouse gas emissions.
The cello bags are fully biodegradable and compostable which means that they break down to CO2, H20 and biomass which can be reused in the eco system to make new plants from composting.
