FAT-CHILLI CARDS & GIFTS
 

Environmental

Fat-Chilli was the first company in the UK to offer eco-friendly products via this type of art project, and since 2008 all of our greetings cards and packaging have been made from sustainably sourced materials. In 2012 we went a step further and introduced a 'buy British' policy to further support our economy in response to the economic downturn. This fitted in well with the existing ‘eco-ethos’, because by buying products that are made in Britain, we avoid shipping in goods from around the world (doing our bit to minimise pollution). Notably, it also means we are able to guarantee the supply chain for our products, ensuring a consistently high product quality and giving us ‘peace of mind’ over ethical fairtrade issues.

Greetings Cards, Calendars, Posters, and packaging
The Fat-Chilli card based products are printed onto a high quality board that is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified. This guarantees the paper pulp is either recycled and/or harvested from sustainable sources.

Gift Items
All of our cotton and linen gift items are made from natural fibres and are manufactured to our specification in Great Britain. They are complete with a Fat-Chilli ‘brand label’ to authenticate the quality, and also washing instructions. With the exception of the synthetic mousemat, all of our products are made from eco-friendly materials.

Caring for your Fat-Chilli products, or recycling them
  • Why not frame the artwork featured on the front of your Fat-Chilli card once the occasion has passed? Or stick the whole card in your childhood ‘scrapbook’, or place it in your ‘memory box’ as a keepsake. If you no longer need the products made from card, the materials may be recycled with other cardboard or paper products.
  • Please wash the Fat-Chilli cotton and linen items at 30 degrees as this is the recommended environmental washing cycle temperature. If you have ‘washed and washed’ the items and they have withstood years of use, they can be recycled with other material products.
  • For more details on recycling please contact your local council websites as they will provide advice and tips specific to recycling in your locality.
Here are a few online resources that provide information on recycling.
