Meet Canopey - An Actual Sustainable Company!
It’s one of the biggest buzzwords of our current times - but Canopey are ACTUALLY the epitome of sustainable. Let us explain how…..
‘Gifts that don’t cost the earth’...we’ve all heard it before. Companies believe sticking the word ‘sustainable’ on their homepages and some oft manufactured data to show how they are offsetting their impact makes them credible to buy from. And indeed that buying from them is actually beneficial, having a positive impact on the world we are systematically consuming to finality. It’s become noise. We’ve become desensitised to it in many instances, and moreover the untrained eye (like mine!) cannot cut through what is actual sustainability and what is just lip service or media spin. Enter Canopey, who fight through the minefield of ‘green’ to help you buy better. Canopey brings verified, sustainable products together under one roof - saving you having to read hundreds of blogs, going to ten different websites and being unable to see the results of these efforts post-purchase.
How do I buy gifts in a sustainable way?
When you shop on Canopey, you know that you can trust that what you are buying has been checked by them - and by check, I mean more than just belt and braces, dotted i’s and crossed t’s - no no, their checks are the full monty; leaving no stone unturned and no amount of smoke and mirrors can stop the Canopey team from being able to determine true sustainability.
Better still, the Canopey calculator makes it easy to track your shopping impact by showing how products stack up against the mainstream options.
Want some stats to back up the words? Oh go on then…..
