Stripey Cats are continuously working and looking at ways to improve our products and make them greener, even when it’s costing us more we feel it’s the right thing to do. Stripey Cats are very passionate about the environment and are striving to do our bit to help the planet. 

How we strive to go green

All our cards are printed on FSC certified paper (meaning the paper our cards are printed on comes from sustainably sourced timber) and it’s made in the beautiful Lake District!

We offer our cards for sale in compostable cello bags, or simply just the card (with a small opaque paper belly band to keep it together for trade packs). We continuously assess the possibilities here and if we find a more environmentally friendly way to keep our cards looking tip-top we’ll always consider using it instead.  

We use UK companies for all our printing, making and dispatching material, helping to reduce our overall carbon footprint.

Our packers and finishers are a local team (including friends and family!). Because supporting our local economy is also important for our local environment.

You may have noticed, most of our cards do have plastic wobbly-eyes. However the feedback we receive from our customers suggests that recipients keep our cards and have them framed, which we feel is the perfect way to display them after their use!

We can also offer our cards without the wobbly eye, so if this is something you would like just let us know.

We have re-designed our personalised clock gift box, so we can now remove the need for a bubble wrap bag. We have ditched the grey plastic mailing bags and have sourced a brown paper mailing bag to use instead.

Boxes are made in the UK.

We use a local framer to make our frames. Clock components are bought from a UK company.

We will continue to evolve and are always striving to create sustainable products that are good to the environment.
