Collaboration: Visions of a Wilder Sussex
We’re so excited to finally be able to tell you about something that we’ve been working on behind the scenes for a little while.. And what better day to tell you about our new collaboration with the Sussex Wildlife Trust than today - the day of LOVE and celebrating great partnerships!
Since we launched back in 2011, sustainability has been one of our core values. We’re constantly trying to be more eco-friendly - cutting down on plastic, re-using and focussing on our paper-based products handmade by us.
Our personalised seed packets were in our original offering, but fast-forward to 2020 and they are by far our biggest seller. And we can see why!
People are increasingly aware of how their shopping habits impact on the environment, and these little eco-friendly seed packets not only look divine (if we do say so ourselves) but carry an inspiring and meaningful message – and of course help to spread a bit of nature too.
In the midst of a climate and ecological emergency change needs to happen. We depend on nature for everything from the food we eat and the air we breathe to our happiness and emotional wellbeing.
As a Sussex-based business we have been a proud supporter of the Sussex Wildlife Trust for a while. With their community events and projects, they are tireless educators and champions of nature. Their nature reserves – such as their beautiful head office based at Woods Mill - are havens of biodiversity where wildlife thrives and kids and adults alike can get muddy and nourished.
We wanted to do more than just donate, however. H’mmm what about our seed packets… Could there bee (gettit?!) a more perfect pairing?
So here they are. We’re launching with two brand new wedding seed packet designs, one filled with lavender and one with wildflower seeds, both perfect for pollinators (but, if you’d prefer to use one of our existing designs instead just let us know).
For each Sussex Wildlife Trust seed packet bought 20p goes straight to them, and their logo stands proudly on the back.
You get a beautiful favour to brighten up your wedding tables, your guests get to take home seeds to sow in their gardens or plant-pots for the butterflies and bees, and you get to feel good that you’ve helped such a deserving cause. A truly meaningful favour, for one of your most meaningful days.
We’re passionate about the cause of nature and are over the moon about this partnership. We have a larger range in the making for other celebrations – children’s parties and memorial services - so watch this space …
