Beyond the Page are fully committed to respecting and preserving the environment for future generations. We try our best to ensure that all of our raw materials, product components and despatch packaging are ethically sourced.
We strive to use, wherever possible, FSC1 or PEFC2 Chain of Custody certified paper and wood based products, or components made from recycled material or virgin 100% renewable sources. All elements of our product, including product packaging and despatch packaging is 100% recyclable and / or biodegradable.
Any packaging received from our suppliers is reused as void filling in our despatch boxes. Any plastics used for wrapping our products are made in the UK from recyclable polypropylene.
We endeavour to source all our raw materials from UK manufacturers, with the exception of picture frame mouldings which are manufactured within the EU.
Any residual waste is collected by carbon neutral collection vehicles, for zero waste-to-landfill recycling at a state-of-the-art recycling plan in Warwickshire, one of the most advanced recycling facilities in Europe.
Paul and Laura, founders of and directors of Beyond the Page have been Trustees of Peel Bank Urban Woodland and Conservation Trust for over 30 years. Established in 1983, the aims of the charity are to plant trees, provide havens for natural wildlife and provide an educational resource for the area in which it operates.
Over the last couple of years we have been preparing our charity to hand on to The Woodland Trust, a gift of land and financial assets of about 3/4 million pounds. The Woodland Trust will be planting a further 6000 trees and shrubs on this land to create a new, beautiful woodland and investing the money in more woodland creation schemes.
