Black Sheep Gifts is a family business, firmly aligned with our personal belief that each of us should do what we can to leave the planet a better place than we found it. We decided to start putting together beautiful gift hampers that are filled with ethically produced, organic, natural products. The basket is made of bamboo which can be reused. The filler in the hamper is recycled shredded paper which can be recycled again. The ribbons and string are biodegradable and the cellophane is totally biodegradable. I have taken the following information from my supplier’s website relating to the cellophane for your information.
These cellophane rolls are made in the UK from cellophane film that has been accredited biodegradable & compostable to 'BS EN 13432' and 'OK Compost'. They are also approved for Anaerobic digestion (ISO 15985) & Marine biodegradation ASTM D6691-09. The film has also tested to ensure that once composted there are no adverse effects on the plant growth.
I hope this information puts your mind at ease that when buying from Black Sheep Gifts you are buying a gift that is packaged and produced responsibly, and the recipient will love it.
Oh, and if you are wondering where the name comes from, its because the black sheep is the one in the flock that stands out, the one that we always notice because it is naturally different from the others.
We hope you love our gifts!
