After Christmas 2013, Lovely Branches re-planted their potted trees in the field where they remained in 2014 to grow and recover. They’re now vibrant and ready for Christmas 2015! Lovely Branches grow their trees in pots. This keeps the root system small, helping the tree survive the trip to your house each year. They deliver to the Greater London area.
The Green Gables print their paper products on 100% recycled paper stock. They also use compostable packaging and recyclable or reusable postal packaging and strive to make the products in Britain, wherever possible. The Green Gables supports six charities by donating 10% of annual profits.
Organic-ally are on a mission to reduce plastic and paper usage. All organic-ally products have been ethically-sourced and, as much as possible, fairly traded. They do not stock any item they are not prepared to give to those nearest and dearest to them with a clear conscience.

They donate as many turkeys as they can to patients and staff in UK hospices, currently supporting over 80 hospices a year. They also support local charity events.
