Our recycled magazine products and Betty & Betts books ensure people in the third world are not exploited, but offered a fair wage, a reliable income, healthcare, education etc. Buying ethically can change lives and communities. |
| ||Made of FSC Wood |
| Set up in 1993, the Forest Stewardship Council was established to maintain the responsible use of the worlds forest. Buying FSC wood ensures you buy from sustainable sources. Planting down a mature tree, and replacing it with a sapling isn't sustainable - several trees are therefore planted for each tree cut down. Buy FSC and protect the worlds forests. |

We have a whole host of wildlife homes which are made in the UK, along with some fantastic oversized beanbags which are made of fabric, in the UK. Its not often you find UK fabrics, but when you do, you know its going to be good. |
