Doing our bit to show love for the Planet
The beauty of nature and wildlife is at the heart of Nettlefold so in turn conservation and the perseveration of endangered animals, and the environment, are causes extremely close to our heart.
Nettlefold recognises that we should have a commitment beyond the standard legal requirements, to ensure our products are produced as ethically as possible. We aim to do everything we can to improve our environmental performance, to be aware of how our products are made and the resources used.
We will endeavour to use suppliers that have the same outlook and vision as we do. We try to support fellow small, local businesses and wherever possible, create as much as we can, from scratch in the Cotswolds.
