Sustainability is at the heart of what we strive for. While we cherish the past, we’re conscious of the future and we know that change is needed by all of us to protect and sustain our natural world for future generations.
Materials used in SIÓG packaging are sustainably sourced and environmentally friendly. We minimise packaging to that which is absolutely necessary and ensure every material we purchase to package our products is 1) made from recycled materials as much as possible and 2) is biodegradable or suitable to be recycled again (card, paper-based).
If bubble wrap is used as protection when shipping large frames, please note that this has been recycled from goods received inwards - we collect this, save it and re-use. We do not purchase single-use plastic for packaging purposes but will re-use that already in circulation.
- Candles: Our candles are made of pure rapeseed wax (a non-toxic, non-GM, renewable and easily grown plant) sourced from County Kerry and organic essential oils sourced from County Wicklow. We also offer a discount scheme on our tinned candles to encourage recycling. Upon receipt of used candle tins, we will send a discount code that can be used on future purchases - please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
- Flower Presses: assembled by hand in our Kildare Studio from high quality birch plywood, our flower presses are beautifully gift-wrapped using sustainable materials.
- Prints & Art Commissions: Frames used are solid wood, made in Ireland and use traditional glass.
