Environmental & ethics policy

Cath Tate Cards is committed to high ethical and environmental standards and endeavours to make this part of our everyday working practices — from sourcing materials and suppliers to managing our office. We support UK production, and our cards and gifts are all made in the UK.

Our cards and envelopes are all made from 100% recycled paper. When sourcing new materials we always conduct research into their environmental credentials. Selecting the greenest option is always a priority in any choices we make.

We strongly support the move to reduce single-use plastics in the greeting card industry and in 2023 we were proud to launch our innovative ‘Card Corner’ to the market. The Card Corner label is our eco-conscious alternative to cello wrapping. 

We work to ensure all our products are manufactured by ethical businesses. We do this by visiting the site of production. We do not purchase goods from a supplier who does not pay the statutory minimum wage to its workers. We are also members of Sedex as are our suppliers. Sedex is an organisation that helps businesses to ensure responsible business trading and ethical treatment of workers.
