We’re starting to reduce and offset our carbon footprint, including by working with more local suppliers. We’re also upping the feel-good factor of your favourite things by making more of our products and packaging recyclable.
Paper is precious to us and to the planet, which is why all – yes, all! – of our paper products are made from FSC-certified or sustainable sources. We also hug trees to make sure they know how much we appreciate them.
we are parting ways with plastic wherever possible across our products, packaging and online deliveries. Our gift cards are now made from paper instead of single-use plastic
Sustainable timber sourcing
For 50 years we have been bringing joy to the everyday through our innovative design-led cards, wrap, stationery and gifts. Our seasonal collections are brought to life using the highest-quality materials from around the world and the talents of our in-house teams in London.
We have over 125 stores and concessions across the country and over 20 outlets internationally. Our award-winning website, paperchase.com, makes sure that no one has to miss out, allowing people to shop 24/7 from wherever they are.
For FSC sake!
As of 2017, around 90% of our timber suppliers hold Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification. The FSC is a global organisation that works to promote the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide. It sets standards for forest products and independently certifies that these standards have been met before allowing their logo to be featured on products that qualify.
The number of FSC certified products in our ranges is growing fast. We will always state in the product description if an item is FSC certified so you can be confident that buying won’t mean harming the world’s forests.
Around 2% of our products are made from recycled fibre which also reduces the overall pressure on natural forests and other important resources. Check out our core range of Kraft products - they all contain materials manufactured with recycled fibre.
Our timber sourcing policy also supports our due-diligence requirements in accordance with the European Union TImber Regulations. Effective since 2013, these regulations aim to address the globe trade of illegally harvested timber.
The modern slavery act statement
This statement is made according to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Here at Paperchase, we recognise that Modern Slavery includes slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour, and human trafficking. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings, and to setting up effective systems that safeguard against any form of modern slavery within our business and supply chain.
We’re also committed to making sure our suppliers meet the highest standards of ethics and demonstrate fair working conditions. All suppliers must sign our Code of Practice, which highlights our intolerance of the use of child labour or exploitation of any other vulnerable group. They must confirm that wages and working conditions are comparable to local norms and comply with all local laws. We outline that we may end contract at any time if we become away of any instances of modern slavery.
This statement was approved by our Board of Directors, May 2021.
