Blue glass bottle upcycled



We hate waste, so we're delighted to have a family run business who are transforming our not-quite-perfect blue glass bottles and jars into beautiful dishes and vases.  We also regularly upcycle for store displays, a stunning example is blue glass bottle chandelier in our Westfield store.  We hope this inspires you to get creative and reuse your bottles in your own way.


World Land Trust


Help save endangered habitats without lifting a finger with our Christmas gifts, which are packaged with FSC certified and Carbon Balanced Paper.

This eco friendly packaging – part of the World Land Trust’s Carbon Balanced programme – has helped us to protect 7,300 m2 of precious forest and offset 87.5 tonnes of CO2 since March 2012. The programme offsets carbon emissions by purchasing and protecting tropical forest under threat of deforestation.

As World Land Trust patron Sir David Attenborough puts it, the programme “really does give us a way of helping put back what we are taking away."
