Embarking on the Green Path

At Making Meadows, our commitment to sustainability goes beyond mere words – it's a journey, a conscious effort to weave eco-friendly practices into every facet of our business. Join us as we delve into the heart of our sustainability values, exploring the initiatives and principles that define our dedication to a greener future for stationery.

Our Roots in Nature

Our sustainability journey begins with a deep respect for nature. Inspired by the scenic beauty of the local Surrey countryside, our journey takes root in the very landscapes that captivate us. It's a harmonious dance with nature that guides our choices, from the designs we paint to the packaging materials we use.

Eco-Friendly Materials

Step into our studio and you'll find a commitment to eco-friendly materials at the core of our creations. From our recycled envelopes in our letter writing sets to sustainable packaging choices, we strive to minimise our environmental footprint. Each decision is a step toward a world where stationery can be both beautiful and kind to the planet.

Mindful Designs Inspired by Nature

Nature isn't just a backdrop; it's our muse. Our hand-painted illustrations draw inspiration from the lush meadows and serene landscapes that surround us. Every stroke of the brush tells a story of appreciation for the environment, and we hope our designs inspire a similar connection with nature in every user.

Reducing Waste, One Package at a Time

Packaging matters, and we're committed to minimising waste. Our sustainable packaging options are more than just a visual treat – they're a conscious choice to reduce environmental impact. As you unwrap our products, know that we've taken steps to ensure your joy doesn't come at the expense of the planet. We never use plastic.

Educating and Inspiring Change

Our journey isn't just about us; it's about inspiring change in our community. Through our blog, educational initiatives, and partnerships, we aim to spread awareness about sustainable living. By empowering our customers with knowledge, we believe we can collectively contribute to a greener, more sustainable world. We work with the charity Buglife, who help to build B-lines. B-lines are a series of insect pathways consisting of wildflowers that link up existing wildlife areas across the UK. These B-Lines help bees, butterflies and other wildlife to navigate across the countryside. To learn more, check out our Personalised Writing PaperWith every purchase of a Personalised Writing Paper Set, we will donate £1.50 to their B-Line project. Your £1.50 helps to plant 6 square meters of wildflower.

The Road Ahead: Continuous Improvement

As we reflect on our sustainability journey, we recognise that it's an ongoing commitment. We're continuously exploring new ways to reduce our impact, embracing innovative solutions, and evolving with the ever-changing landscape of sustainable practices. The road ahead is one of continuous improvement, and we invite you to join us on this path to a greener tomorrow.

In every product we create, every decision we make, and every initiative we undertake, sustainability is not just a value – it's a journey of responsibility, respect, and reverence for the planet we call home. At Making Meadows, we invite you to be a part of this journey, where the beauty of stationery meets a dedication to a sustainable and flourishing world.
