Wedgie Door Stopper (The Bard)
Meet The Bard: A Wedgie of many words, you’ll often find The Bard twirling his quill whilst bombarding the ladies with a sonnet or 154. And as the door stopping playwright once said; “Let the doors be shut upon him, that he may play the fool nowhere but in’s own house”.
Each door stop is hand-painted and handcrafted out of quality Alstonia wood. The paint used is a durable matte paint, and is incredibly scratch resistant – these Wedgies are made to last. Character description stickers are printed on the back of each Wedgie. Size: (L) 21.5cm X (W) 4cm.
Wedgie are an independent wooden handicrafts company, who are UK based and have close ties with Sri Lanka where the Wedgies are made. Inspired by pop-culture and the art world, they deliver a high-quality, handmade product that will ultimately bring a smile to the recipients face.
Plastics & Packaging
By mid 2021, we are aiming to be plastic-free. So far, we are making good progress. In 2020, we phased out non-recyclable plastics from our packaging. That means no non-recycled plastic bags, plastic clips, collar straighteners, plastic swing tags, and plastic labels; we now substitute with wood, paper/cardboard or metal.
This does, however, mean your garment may not appear as ?over-packed? as other brands, but we feel this is a small price to pay when it comes to the environment. The quality of the garment is obviously not affected.
The individual product bags we use are category 4 recycled and are considered a safe form of plastic. We are in the process of phasing these bags out and will soon be introducing Vela product bags in 2021 – a recyclable, naturally biodegradable, transparent paper bag.
The mailing bags used for on-line orders are made from 100% recycled materials and contain a biodegradable additive to assist with the biodegrading process. These are also being phased out throughout 2021, and all bags will be made from 100% sugarcane.
We also have a strict no-plastics policy on all our buttons and trims.
We are conscious of the carbon footprint of our process but accept that getting raw materials into production and then into your home implies a great deal of transport. We avoid use of airfreight as much as possible.
We have a logistics process which streamlines deliveries to ensure maximum efficiency, including use of recycled cardboard and maximum load densities to get most efficient haulage time and frequency ? cutting down on wastage and empty consignment space.
We use sea transport with cargo vessels which abide by the highest standards of pollution reduction and best industry practice.
