ECOLOGICAL SUSTAINABILITY IS A KEY COMPONENT TO OUR BUSINESS.
“Ecological sustainability” refers to the capacity of the biosphere to meet the needs of the present generation, without hindering future generations from being able to meet their needs. This means using our natural resources wisely in the short-term so that these resources are available in the long-term.
Raw Earth Hampers packaging has been designed to provide an eco-luxury ‘Wow factor’. We’ve have sourced re-usable cardboard and timber boxes that have been sourced from sustainable & ethical manufacturers. The manufacturers acknowledge the importance of sustainability & ethical practices.
All of our packaging is biodegradable, reusable and recyclable. Read our blog to see some great ways to reuse our packaging around your home.
Our Gift Cards
Each hamper contains a gift card from Earth Greetings. Their mission is to use the most Earth friendly paper & printing alternatives available to design unique paper goods which are a celebration of nature. Sustainability and the Environment is a key component to their business.
