Environmental Policy - Green Honey Tree

HoneyTreePublishing Ltd  Registered office no: 6658322

Below are a selection of typical and important activities and practices conducted by us in accordance with our respect for our environment and planet.

We believe that in the future, many card and paper suppliers will find even greater sustainable practices in the recycling and production of premium quality materials. We will be the first to know and act on this.

We endeavour to reduce pollution, emissions and waste produced by the business, and expect similar environmental standards from all suppliers. (These are all UK based, reducing our carbon footprint and other associated transport costs.)

- On all printers we have a sleep function to prevent energy wastage.
- Our paper and recycling bin is taken to the local recycling facility weekly.
- We “proof” orders on the back of previously used card.
- Transport: our “Print on Demand” business allows us to walk to work at our studios and many of our print and admin team are all local, with several team members cycling or walking to work (when the weather permits!)
- On demand / short run printing: we only set up a print run once we receive a confirmed order, thereby reducing stock piles, out dated and ex stock that needs to be destroyed.
- Our card stock is luxury quality and therefore not recycled, but does come from sustainable sources from UK suppliers. Our paper is made from carbon neutral papers and our card made with windpower. 70% of our card and paper supplies come from the South West, ensuring a low carbon footprint.
- Our hand finished presentation gift boxes are made from recycled card.
- Deliveries: we order in healthy volumes to prevent unnecessary delivery mileage.
- Postage: we send all UK orders by Royal Mail as they collate the most parcels in our category, hence preventing wasteful individual dispatch deliveries.
