Biodegradable parcels at The Present Tree

Planet Friendly Gifts 

Our parcels are all made with card sourced from certified FSC suppliers. The Forest Stewardship Council is an international non-profit organisation established to promote responsible sustainable management of the world's forests. Each parcel is wrapped in a printed label which are also made from FSC sources and printed using vegetable inks. These vegetable inks are an environmentally friendly alternative to petroleum-based ink. The vegetable inks come from sustainable farming methods which reduce the amount of CO2 in the air, further helping the fight against climate change by reducing air pollution. 

The clear parcel covers we use to protect the parcel on its journey are 100% recyclable and 100% carbon neutral. The covers are made from ethically-sourced sugar cane which is a sustainable, planet-friendly alternative to fossil fuel based plastic. 

Ethical Tree Care 

Our gardeners only ever use 100% organic products to care for your tree gifts, that means we never use any harmful chemicals! We are really proud that all our tree care products are wonderful for us, our pets, all wildlife and the planet. We want to ensure all our trees are given the perfect nourishment and protection to promote healthy growth without negatively impacting our world.

The compost we use is certified 100% organic and made from sustainable sources in Ireland which helps reduce our carbon footprint. It is produced on a worm farm and created when the worms digest their bedding material converting it to rich organic compost. Fascinating! Thank you wonderful worm workers!  

All our pots are made from spruce fibres (a super-sustainable material) and manufactured without any glues or binders. Using these materials makes the biodegradable pots 100% compostable meaning there is zero waste! 

Low Emissions Delivery Service

We aim to keep our delivery carbon footprint as low as possible and minimise the impact we have on the environment. We use Royal Mail and FedEx as they are the greenest couriers who continue to put environmental issues at the top of their business agenda, have a clear environmental policy and targets for reducing CO2 emissions.

Giving Back to our Wildlife

Protecting wildlife holds a very special place in our hearts here at The Present Tree, especially our bees and other buzzy pollinators which is why we proudly sponsor The Bumblebee Conservation Trust. This organisation shares our passion of saving bumble bees and striving to create a world where bees are thriving and valued.
