Values are really important to us at Coppermoon
We are really aware that we need to do our bit for the environment. We try to source our supplies responsibly and as much as we can from the UK.
Some of the ways we try to make a difference in our ethos principles are;
-Using reusable & recyclable packaging(we are at 90% and we are working towards making it all 100% recyclable or biodegradable)
-Supporting reforestation projects and environmental causes (see a bit further down)
-Encouraging mindfulness and mental health awareness through our instagram platform.
-Growing our own awareness of what we can do to lessen our impact on the world
-Educating ourselves on inclusivity and representation in business
-Supporting the local community by providing as many jobs as we can
-Promoting community and friendship with our customers – we want to nurture relationships rather than focus on sales
The day to day changes we are making....
Most of the raw materials we use is Timber and it is all from FSC certified suppliers that purchase their timber from sustainable plantations. All of our offcuts of wood and scrap wood gets recycled by a local wood recycling company to be recycled into something else.
When it comes to packaging our designs we are always striving to find the most sustainable and environmentally friendly products to use. This is what we are currently using at the moment.
So far we have switched away from standard plastic cellotape and have been using recycled kraft paper tape which uses natural rubber based glues, this tape can be recycled alongside the cardboard box we use to ship your items to you!
We use a mixture of recycled brown kraft paper or tissue paper for packing everything up and this can be widely recycled. To keep everything safe as our items travel to their new homes we use a few different things,...
Biodegradable packing peanuts that are made out of Maize, bubble wrap which can be re-used and recycled and we will also from time to time re-use packaging materials we receive when we order things in. This can be corrugated paper, bubble wrap and air bags. We would rather re-use the packaging we are given then get rid of it.
Our mission is to bring magic into your home without compromising the environment
We are working with Ecologi to plant a tree for every purchase you make, we make a donation at the end of each month! We want to be a responsible company by reducing our carbon footprint, helping towards reforestation projects, restoring wildlife habitats and helping local communities. We think this environmental business has some incredible projects on the go and we are excited to be a part of it!!!
