The notion of sustainability is not going away, and rightly so. As a society we are responsible for looking after the beautiful environment in which we live and going about our business in an ethical way.
Over the past couple of years, the mammoth task of taking sustainability seriously has not only been mandated into government policy but passed down to businesses and their customers.
New ethical business practices mean that sustainability is quickly becoming the norm. The fashion industry is starting to move away from appalling fast fashion operations in favour of better quality, less waste alternatives.
Cities across the UK are finally adopting low emission zones which hit the highest polluters where it hurts, in their pockets. And it took a global pandemic for town planners to reclaim road lanes and install much needed cycleways into our city centres to promote green travel.
We are pleased to say that the stationery sector is no different. MeLoovely has been an early adopter of sustainable and ethical business practices since our launch.
Giving our customers the ability to add a touch of personality to their stationery in a sustainable way is something that we are incredibly proud of. But we feel that there is more that can be done and that we all have a responsibility to do what we can, where we can for our environment.
MeLoovely is committed to sourcing materials from suppliers with a strong focus on sustainability and producing products of the very highest quality. It is important to us that our customers can enjoy our stunning range of personalised stationery, guilt free.
When you buy from MeLoovely you can rest assured that the luxury paper used to create our products such as our personalised stationery gift sets is only sourced from suppliers working with the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council).
What is the Forest Stewardship Council?
The FSC is a global organisation that has been committed to harvesting materials from forests whilst ensuring they remain sustainable for more than 25 years. Becoming a member company of the FSC is completely voluntary, but all members must abide by a set of 10 key principles & 70 individual criteria to remain a member.
Some of the principles include:
- Enhancement or maintenance of social & economic wellbeing for workers
- Commitment to identifying and upholding the rights of indigenous people
- Maintain or enhance high conservation values of the forest and apply a precautionary approach to do so.
We fully agree with the objectives set forward by the FSC, as such we endeavour to use FSC approved products wherever possible. We guarantee that all our stationery paper and card is sourced from a FSC certified forest.
What else do we do to provide ethical personalised stationery to the UK?
We actively seek out recyclable and sustainable packaging where possible, the cellophane sleeves we use to protect our writing sets are 100% recyclable.
Our luxury personalised stationery sets with gift boxes are shipped in a fully reusable, hard board box, perfect for storing stationery for years to come.
