Our Sustainability Mission

"At Wraptious, we believe in making a positive impact in all that we do. All businesses have a responsibility to challenge the status quo, and we are committed to continuously looking at how we can give back to our artists, the planet and its communities. Thank you for your contribution in helping us make a difference."

Simon and John-Paul, Wraptious Founders

Planting Trees

For every order we receive, no matter how small, we pledge to plant a tree through our Partners, Trees for the Future. Planting trees provides families with more than just food. It provides income, empowerment, unity, leadership, education and even saves lives.

Every year, over 30 million trees are felled intentionally and by natural causes. Trees clean our soil and our air, provide income and nutrition and protect us from the elements. Trees For The Future is a non-profit organisation that has planted 200 million trees. At Wraptious, we have so far planted over 115,000 trees! Thank you so much for your support.

Sustainable Paper and Timber

All Wraptious paper and timber products are made from sustainably sourced or recycled materials. This includes our greeting cards and envelopes, coasters, wooden canvases and clocks, and even our bubble wrap, boxes and envelopes used for packaging.

Our suppliers are certified to be responsible for sourcing paper and timber from sustainably well-managed forests and/or recycled sources - so you can buy with confidence that you are helping to ensure our forests are thriving for generations to come.

Sustainable Packaging

Where possible we re-use all boxes and packaging from our suppliers to package your orders. This includes plastics as we believe it is better to re-use as filler and protection, than to send directly to landfill. Don't worry, your order is well protected while making as little impact on the environment as possible.

Not to rest on our laurels, we continually work to make our packaging more environmentally friendly. We no longer use plastic bubble wrap, our retail cushions are packed in bags made from sugarcane, and we continue to bring in new box sizes, to best-fit your products and save on filler and fuel efficiency. We also challenge and work with all our suppliers to be mindful of their packaging too!

Reducing Plastic

Plastics and micro-plastics are a threat to the environment, harming wildlife and polluting the food chain. Wraptious is committed to reducing single use plastics across our business.

We no longer used plastic cellophane to pack our greeting cards - all retail cards are posted naked, while our trade and bespoke customers are given a choice between naked cards or our new biodegradable and compostable cellos. We no longer use plastic bubble wrap for our packaging, having moved to a recycled paper alternative, while our bags at all our market stalls are biodegradable. Our retail cushions too, are now shipped in a fully recyclable, cardbon-neutral material made from sugarcane.

These measures, we estimate, save Wraptious from using a nearly a tonne of plastic a year.

What is an ocean, but a multitude of drops. Our individual actions may be small, but together we can make a difference.
