Sustainable Packaging and Gift Wrapping
Being based in Orkney and surrounded by beautiful landscapes and enchanting coastlines means we have a firm appreciation of our environment. The natural world is an endless source of inspiration to Alison and her jewellery designs.
Conscious of the ongoing threat the planet and its ecosystems are under from human activity, we feel it is vital we do our bit to be sustainable and minimise our environmental impact, especially on our oceans.
We're doing all we can to cut single use plastics and to reduce waste in our packaging. Orders are sent in recyclable cardboard boxes and we've replaced most of our plastic foam inserts with organic cotton pouches. The pouches can be kept and are a great way to store your jewellery long term.
We appreciate that many of our items are bought as gifts and therefore gift wrapping is important to you, but we now no longer offer this service as standard. When you place an online order you’ll now find an option to add gift wrap at an additional cost. This helps us to reduce waste and avoids unnecessary packaging.
In our search for something to make your gifts look extra special, we found the incredible Vintage Paper Co based right here in Orkney. They are a small local business who sell hand-printed, quality decorative papers.
Our gorgeous 1930s-style, hand screen printed paper was created especially for us by William of Vintage paper Co.
We are proud that we can support another local business and reduce the carbon footprint of our wrapping paper at the same time by sourcing it in Orkney.
The ribbon we use to complete our wrapping is ethically recycled from waste plastic bottles, which would otherwise have been thrown into landfill or the ocean.
You can therefore rest assured that when you buy a gift from Alison Moore every effort is taken to make sure it is packaged and wrapped in the most environmentally sustainably way we can – without compromising on the quality and style you have come to expect from us.
