At The Bubbly Type we strive to be as environmentally conscious as possible. From day to day running of the biz to eco packaging and sending, we're trying to be as green as possible!



We are trying to reduce our use of plastic as much as possible, specifically single use plastics that leave harmful micro plastic behind when they break down.

We are proud to say that we have successfully transitioned from harsh single use BOPP / poly bags to more sustainable compostable cellophane bags. These bags are derived from plant based cellulose which comes from natural sources like wood, cotton or hemp – meaning it will break down naturally over time.

They are certified to the European (EN13432) and American (ASTM D6400) norms for industrially biodegradable packaging. Also certified by Vincotte to the OK Compost home standard for home composting.

Our cellophane bags can be placed in the compost and will usually break down over a 1-3 month period depending on the conditions.

Alternatively they can be put into the normal rubbish and they will break down naturally in landfill. Because they are derived form natural materials, they will not leave behind harmful micro plastics.





We always try to use recycled papers for where possible. All of our papers used for both marketing collateral and for products like our greeting cards and art prints use Recycled FSC (consciously sourced) paper. 

A majority of our products have now switched over to 100% post consumer recycled papers including our greeting cards and envelopes. This is done with the help of our local Printer whose dedication to eco friendly practices means we can be confident in the sustainability of our products.




We properly dispose of waste from production and try to reuse any scrap materials before recycling where possible. Off cuts of paper are kept for reuse before being recycled. All plastics are separated into hard and soft for proper recycling.

We try hard to make sure all materials are used to their fullest before recycling. For example our Sun Catcher Confetti (Round and Mosaic) is made from any unused space created by the other sun catcher shapes. Our hand made products are consciously created using as much of the materials as possible to minimise waste.
