When selecting products I have considered the country of origin and made every effort to choose those produced in the EU to reduce our environmental footprint by limiting the use of fuel to ship goods. However some products have been chosen for their specific quality or affordability, and are from further a field. All manufacturers follow stringent quality standards and ingredients and final products are environmentally and sustainably sourced and produced.
All packaging (boxes and packing) and office stationery is reused or recycled. I do not purchase any plastic bags or packaging. So if you ever feel that when boxes arrive they don't look quite so new and sophisticated, that is because they have already delivered something to somebody else!
