A-Z Guide of Sustainability

30 Nov 2021 • 2 minute read


In the past 12 months, climate change and its impact can be increasingly felt. Consumers are more aware than ever before of the problems threatening our planet’s future.

The noise being made around the waste and pollution created by companies and industries is unignorable. The general public are now demanding that businesses and corporations take their economic, environmental and social responsibility seriously.

How does sustainability help? Sustainability is about being informed, appropriate and responsibly management of all our choices and their global impact. 

In response to COP26 and recently ecological events, we have put together a white sheet of suitability. These prompts are to help anyone who is struggling to become more sustainable through this gifting season.

As we start buying gifts to show our appreciation to loved ones, the noise made by sales, deals and seasonal sparkle can overwhelm the senses. Our choice to buy disposable plastic with the only outcome to gift a gift and not something meaningful or even useful to the recipient has a massive impact.

Every year £42 million of unwanted gifts are thrown away and only one in ten of those gifts end up being recycled. On average that is two unwanted gifts per person in the UK.

With two-thirds of British people expecting unwanted gifts they will never use, it is time to change the way we shop for gifts.

As part of the CCC (Client Change Committee) pledge to reach net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) by 2050, we all can support the reduction of our carbon footprint, how we produce and handle our seasonal waste.

The way we are using the planet’s resources can not carry on. From simple changes, you can make as a business or individual can help you on your journey towards being more sustainable.

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.
