Rosebourne Garden Centre makes the switch to Green

11 Apr 2022 • 2 minute read

Much more than a garden centre, Rosebourne has built its success on offering visitors a combination of food halls, restaurants, garden nurseries and gifting.

One of their Hampshire locations, at Aldermaston, even includes a butcher. It is no wonder that Rosebourne has recently announced that they are up for the Best Garden Centre Retailer of Gifts at The Greats Awards (winner to be announced in May).

Rosebourne prides itself on its approach to sustainability and quality.  Only premium sourced fresh food and local produce are found in its shops and restaurants. Plus, it is their belief that when it comes to gifting, detail and quality are imperative to guarantee an endearing, well-received gift. Along with a range of hand-picked, seasonal, quality gifts they, of course, offer gift cards to visitors and customers. Their ethos led Rosebourne to choose Green Gift Cards to supply their new plastic-free gift cards and card packaging.


The Green Gift Card details

The Rosebourne elegant gift card design is printed on CR80 gift cards in uncoated high-quality Invercote paperboard from our papermill partners Holmen Iggesund. This versatile card has a 790mic board with a personalised back barcode. Each card printed has a unique barcode individual to the card. The natural, matte feel of the uncoated paperboard has proven to be popular, with people often citing paperboard as a more premium product. They also recognise its eco-credentials.

The style and feel of the uncoated board is a good physical representation of the eco changes brands can make when committing to becoming environmentally conscious. For context, each paperboard card uses 95% less carbon to make compared with a traditional plastic card. Plus, it is 100% recyclable at its end of life and can typically be disposed of and recycled by a household waste collection.

To complement their new cards, Rosebourne chose the #006 Gift Card Carrier (sleeve and insert style). Printed in four colours on 350gsm uncoated paperboard, it is a simple and stylish carrier. When correctly used card packaging can elevate a gift card into a more exciting and luxurious gift.

As Rosebourne know, gifting is all about the experience.

Introducing our range of plastic-free cards

Since 2006 we have been innovating and disrupting in the card market to develop what is a leading range of environmentally-friendly card solutions. So what sets us apart?

Well that’s the thing, there’s a number of reasons why Green Gift Cards are renowned in the world of card production. It is the material we use for our cards and the certification that the cards come with. It is also the compelling environmental story (we urge you to watch the video) that is behind all of our cards and the fact that, once finished with, our cards are compostable and can be recycled in normal household waste streams. Oh and we’ll say it again – being environmentally-friendly doesn’t mean they are more expensive. In fact they offer great value compared to plastic cards.
