Sustainability

“the natural world is changing. And we are totally dependent on that world. It provides our food, water and air. It is the most precious thing we have and we need to defend it.”
Sir David Attenborough

 

The natural environment and the beauty of the Irish countryside inspires many local craftspeople, it has also inspires us at Foxy & Green.  Therefore protection of our natural surroundings is core to everything we do here at Foxy & Green Gifts.  To protect our natural environment we aim to deliver Irish Gifts which are kind to the environment, local economy and society. 

Our Ethos

We are committed to protection the natural environment.  To honor this commitment we have adopted a minimalist policy and to reduce our resources we use recyclable and biodegradable packaging.  Where possible, and accessible, we use sustainable eco-friendly processes and packaging.  Our gifts are packaged using shredded wood wool and recycled bubble wrap to ensure they arrive with you safely. 

Our Crafters

All of our crafters are small and medium independent Irish crafters who live and work in our local towns.  The makers we work with are committed to crafting their work using sustainable and ecofriendly processes.  Through supporting these independent crafters we are also promoting jobs and communities in the local the Irish economy and society.

You Our Customers

We are also committed to helping our customers to make small changes that are kind to the natural environment. We ask our customers to assist us with our commitment to reduce waste.  We have one small request we ask that you please either reuse, recycle or upcycle your packaging/

Together we can all help to reduce the use of chemicals and plastics and be kinder to our planet!
