Manufacturing and Sustainability

OUR MELAMINE PRODUCTS

For our melamine range of products; which currently includes coasters, placemats and cutting boards, our manufacturers use a sustainably forested Eucalyptus Board which is 100% PEFC certified and 100% formaldehyde free.  This ensures we provide the needs of the present, without compromising the needs of the future.  The cork used on the back of our placemats and coasters is also sustainably farmed in Portugal. All of our materials are sourced as close to the UK as possible, aiming to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible.

Rejects and off cuts are used to fuel a local power station, instead of using coal power.  Wood dust goes towards compost.  The backing paper on the cork is used in packing goods for despatch.

OUR PACKAGING

  • FSC Certified, acid free tissue paper or paper "bubble wrap" will be used to wrap all of our products.
  • Kraft tape which is fully recyclable and free from animal products.
  • Biodegradable and Compostable cello bags which are made from vegetable starch.
  • Recyclable cardboard envelopes or boxes.
  • Sometimes for larger orders, we will reuse packaging.
Packaging

Bean and Bemble products will be supplied to you beautifully packaged with either our branded belly band, swing tags, label or box, ready for your customers to purchase.  We ensure packaging is kept to a minimum without compromising on style, and always use recyclable paper and card for our postal packing materials.

All our branded packaging is manufactured right here in the UK too.  We always try to source our packaging as close to home as possible.  Orders will usually be sent out in plain brown packaging - yes it isn't as glamorous as we'd like, but it's much easier to recycle!  We even use brown paper parcel tape instead of plastic to seal the package!

As a small business, we look for innovative solutions to help us reduce waste, like reusing supplier shipping boxes for wholesale or larger orders - so we're sorry if your order arrives looking a little battered ;) we promise the contents will be totally gorgeous!
