My Efforts to improve sustainability in my wedding business
Having spent decades recycling as much of my household waste as I could, I knew it was important to ensure my business was as environmentally friendly as possible. and I needed to ensure I was always making an effort to improve sustainability in my wedding business.
More environmentally friendly packaging
A few of years ago I moved from recyclable plastic, to paper filling. Since then, I’ve found paper tape and where possible use that to package all my accessories to improve my sustainability.
Sourcing Materials from more local suppliers
I try to source my tools and materials from UK suppliers – small independent ones when I can. If that is not possible, then I will buy as much as I can in bulk to reduce air miles. But I really do prefer to buy from here in the UK. Any materials I use, I will recycle where I can, and reuse anything that can be made into something new.
Where everything is made, no outsourcing
Everything produced for Laurel Lime is made here in the UK, in Birmingham, by me. No outsourcing. So, when you buy from me, you know that I’m sat in my studio working on your accessory or piece of jewellery. No stock piling here!
The future environmental sustainability of my business
Everything I do to be more sustainable, and environmentally, is an ongoing process. I am always looking for better ways to source, use, and recycle everything I use; whether this is through my studio, or personally.
Would you like to know more about my commitments to helping the planet?
If so, I have written an article discussing how I make a donation to a special charity that is working hard in the background to improve conservation and protection of the small things that run our planet. I do this through each order you place with me.
