Celebrating World Environment Day: Our Commitment to a Greener Planet

by Simon Singh


As we mark World Environment Day on June 5th, it's a time for reflection and action. This year's theme is "Beat Plastic Pollution," a call to tackle one of the planet's most pressing environmental issues. At our gift company, specializing in chocolate bouquets, we're passionate about delighting our customers with sweet treats while also committing to sustainable practices that help protect our planet. Here's how we're reducing our impact and how you can join us in making a difference.

Our Efforts to Reduce Environmental Impact

  1. Eco-Friendly Packaging:

    • Biodegradable and Recyclable Materials: We've transitioned to using biodegradable and recyclable packaging for our chocolate bouquets. This move helps reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up in landfills and oceans.
    • Reduced Packaging Waste: By optimizing our packaging design, we've cut down on excess materials. This year alone, we've reduced packaging waste by 30%.
  2. Sustainable Sourcing:

    • Ethically Sourced Ingredients: Our chocolates are made from cocoa sourced from farms that adhere to sustainable and ethical farming practices. This ensures that our products support both environmental conservation and fair labour practices.
    • Sustainable Suppliers: All our suppliers are chosen for their commitment to sustainability and reducing environmental impacts. This includes sourcing raw materials responsibly and minimizing their carbon footprints.
    • Local Suppliers: Whenever possible, we source locally to reduce our carbon footprint associated with transportation.
  3. Energy Efficiency:

    • Efficient Production Processes: We've invested in energy-efficient machinery and streamlined our processes to minimize energy consumption during production.
  4. Waste Reduction Initiatives:

    • Composting and Recycling Programs: We have robust composting and recycling programs in place at our facilities. In 2024, we've successfully diverted 80% of our waste from landfills.
    • Upcycling Initiatives: We encourage our customers to upcycle our packaging. For example, our beautiful bouquet boxes can be repurposed as storage containers or decorative items.
  5. Sustainable Delivery:

    • Using the Greenest Postal Company in the UK: We are proud to partner with the greenest postal company in the UK for all our deliveries. Royal Mail utilises electric and low-emission vehicles, offsetting their carbon footprint to ensure that every delivery is as eco-friendly as possible. This partnership has significantly reduced our carbon emissions associated with shipping, aligning with our commitment to sustainability.
    • Enviro-boxes for Shipping: All our postal cardboard boxes are Enviro-boxes, which are manufactured to reduce CO2 emissions. By using Enviro-boxes, we ensure that our shipping materials have a lower environmental impact from production through to disposal.

How You Can Help

  1. Reduce Plastic Use:

    • Opt for Reusable Products: Use reusable bags, bottles, and containers to cut down on single-use plastics.
    • Support Eco-Friendly Brands: Choose products from companies that prioritise sustainable practices, like ours.
  2. Sustainable Choices:

    • Buy Local: Support local businesses and farmers to reduce the carbon footprint associated with transportation.
    • Choose Ethical Products: Look for certifications like Fair Trade, Rainforest Alliance, or Organic to ensure your purchases support sustainable and ethical practices.
  3. Conserve Energy:

    • Energy-Efficient Appliances: Use energy-efficient appliances and light bulbs to reduce your energy consumption.
    • Mindful Consumption: Turn off lights and unplug devices when not in use.
  4. Waste Management:

    • Recycle Properly: Follow local recycling guidelines to ensure your recyclables are processed correctly.
    • Compost: Composting organic waste reduces landfill usage and produces valuable soil for gardening.


On this World Environment Day, let's come together to make a positive impact on our planet. At our gift company, we're committed to sustainable practices, and we invite you to join us in our efforts. Every small action counts, and together, we can create a healthier, greener world for future generations.
