Fat-Chilli is very keen to ensure it’s services do not have a detrimental impact on the environment. Where possible our products and packaging are environmentally friendly. Please see further details below.

Greetings Cards, Calendars, Posters, and Card Board 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. All of these items may be recycled with your household card and paper products.

Greetings Cards – Cornstarch Film Bags the cards are packaged in
The film bags that our sample cards; and card packs are packaged in are made from a Cornstarch plant-based film. These bags can be recycled with your household food waste, as this waste is incinerated at a temperature that will allow the film to degrade.

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 include a Fat-Chilli ‘brand label’ to authenticate the quality, and also washing instructions. With the exception of the synthetic mousemat, and teddy bear, 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.
  • 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 fabric products at your local tip.
  • 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.
