Our GoodToBee wraps are sustainable, biodegradable and made from organic cotton so naturally we applied the same low impact commitment to our business. From beginning to end we created our production process with zero waste and zero impact in mind. We are not there yet but we strive to be mindful of every decision we make.

Our fabric is 100% organic, certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and printed with low impact dye. No pesticides are used in the crop or production process meaning a significant reduction of rinse water is needed and runoff is minimal. Consequently no nasty chemicals make their way into the environment or to you. Fair working condition are also set by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) before the fabric is certified organic.

Powdered tree resin is a natural product. At present we are using powered pine resin but unfortunately we cannot be certain of the management of the trees from which it comes. We are currently investigating switching to an alternative where we can be certain of the management of the trees and land in which they grow.

GoodToBee’s printing and packaging uses only 100% recycled post-consumer waste. The paper has FSC, Ecolabel, Nordic Swan and Low carbon emission certification.

Our stamp is made from environmentally sourced oak ensuring that the oak tree which was felled has already repaid its debt to the environment. Additionally a new sapling tree is planted in an area affected by deforestation for every custom stamp made.
