Ethical Buying Policy

Tinsmiths is committed to minimising the impact of its activities on the environment.

The key points of its strategy to achieve this are:

  • Minimise waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible.
  • Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst its customers and suppliers – because we reuse as much as possible of the packaging that our orders come in, this may mean that your parcel may look rather unconventional.
  • Source and promote a product range to minimise the environmental impact of both production and distribution. We try to maintain a product range that is 70% or more UK made, with as much as possible of the remainder from a group of excellent Fairtrade suppliers.
  • We will only use animal products which are a by-product of the meat industry. We don't use skins or pelts of animals which are raised solely for obtaining their skins. Products such as sheepskin and stag horn come from animals which have been raised for meat.
