Poodle and Blonde is committed to being socially responsible. We actively seek out sustainable materials and practices during our product development process and this continues right through to the packaging of your order. As we grow we promise to continue to keep this a priority. Some of the ways in which we are enforcing this include things such as; avoiding wastage wherever possible, choosing biodegradable alternatives and producing no more than required right here in the UK with our trusted manufactures.
With each item that you purchase from us, you can trust that as well as making a great choice for your home, you have also made a responsible choice for our planet. Our range of designs and product has been produced to the highest standard allowing us to offer you beautiful pieces that can stand the test of time.
Wallpaper and wall art
All of our wallpaper and wall art is FSC certified, the paper has been sourced from sustainable forests. Our printer inks are supplied by HP which was recently voted one of the most sustainable companies in the world. Printing our rolls per order allows us to significantly minimise our waste output. Our paper is packaged using 95% recycled or biodegradable materials.
Our range of notebooks are made using 100% recycled paper and are finished with a biodegradable laminate. The paper is FSC certified and the books are produced locally. When packing your notebook order we use 100% paper packaging. Each book is sent beautifully wrapped in our signature blue genuine vintage ribbon and finished with our much loved biodegradable poodle sticker.
We can certify that the cushion fillers that we supply to you are produced from recycled polyester raw materials. These raw materials comprise (although are not limited to): PET Bottle Flake (from recycled post consumer, washed PET bottles and containers) PET Post Industrial Recycled waste Off spec and PET chips. This polyester fibre complies with Oekotex Standard 100 and also with GRS (Global Recycling Standard).
Our cushion range also features limited edition vintage cushions. These cushion outers are made from 100% genuine vintage or dead-stock fabric and trims, with the exclusion of the zip and branded label. Some of the trims used on our vintage cushions date as far back as the 60's! Our vintage range is filled with our recycled filler.
Our cotton linen and cotton velvet fabrics are all digitally printed, a much more sustainable process than screen printing, as the printing process of applying the ink directly to the fabric means less wasted surplus ink, through precise application of the design. All of the inks we use are water based and our ink cartridges are recyclable.
Our fabric orders are printed as bespoke to avoid any unnecessary fabric waste or damage. Our trusted manufacturer recycles all paper and plastics either with a specialist recycling firm or within the company itself. The print mill's choice of high quality inks enables our machines to run more efficiently and for longer before any repairs or replacement of parts are required. Recently a decision was made to bring all fabric coating in-house to reduce the carbon footprint.
