This thoughtfully put together gift bag has a creative theme which includes ten handmade Fairtrade twig pencils, a quality made-to-last organic cotton pencil case, a paper mask and some seeds to nurture for the bees. Non of these toys are noisy so ideal for those with noise sensitivity, or events where other guests need to be considered such a weddings.
Seeds – the packet is made from recycled paper and itself fully recyclable. We source our seeds from a UK supplier, and all the wildflower seeds are of native UK origin. We don’t buy them in from mainland Europe where the mixes are not entirely of British species. We only supply seeds that are of British wildflowers, and therefore suitable for our climate and insects.
Organic pencil case – made using organic cotton and from our UK supplier of ethically sourced promotional goods. Made in the EU. Our cute whale logo in on one side and the other is blank.
Twig pencils – We source our unique twig pencils from a dedicated Fairtrade wholesaler. The pencils are crafted from natural tamarind tree branches in Thailand by a small family business. Our supplier has visited the family personally to ensure its eco credentials and its Fairtrade status.
Printing block – handmade and Fairtrade, these wooden printing blocks from Jaipur are a perfect size for little hands and creative minds. There are four designs in total, one per bag. We love to make wrapping paper and handmade cards with ours.
Animal glasses – Made from thick paper, these super fun animal masks can be coloured in and enjoyed by the children and when the time comes can be recycled with your paper and card collection. Unlike masks or party hats, there are no elasticated bands or staples – just 100% recyclable paper. A mix of six animals will be spread across the bags: tiger, elephant, parrot, giraffe, lion and a very cheeky alligator!
Eco Hero Card – Bright and fun card to keep that comes with a wordsearch game and fun tips to help kids become eco heroes.
Party bag – our newspaper bags are made by a charity whose main objective is to provide education and shelter to street children. This eco-friendly product is made from recycled Indian newspaper. The organisation was started in 2004 by street children who wanted to give something back in return for the opportunities which had allowed them to escape desperate circumstances. These elder children, now married with children of their own, generate an income by making newspaper bags and jute items. This allows them to take care of 13 street children that they have saved from the streets surrounding Delhi train station. Support for this wonderful project means that these children can enjoy going to school and playing, rather than pulling rickshaws, shoe polishing, rag picking and worse.
The newspapers are printed either in Indian language or English. As they are recycled newspapers, your bag may sometimes include a completed crossword!
