How does Craft Plus UK protect the Environment

Everyone at Craft Plus UK is concerned about the environment. For several years now we have used a number of ways to limit the resources we use and to recycle whatever we can. Wherever possible we order from UK suppliers to reduce product distance travelled and because they tend to use ships rather than air freight when importing products from abroad. We have an active policy of promoting and purchasing from small UK manufacturers, again reducing the distance that products travel. Wherever possible we reuse the packaging and boxes that manufacturers and suppliers use to deliver to us. All of the boxes that we purchase are 100% recyclable. Much of the packaging we use is made from 100% recycled material as well. We ask you please to recycle your packaging if possible so that one day they might be made into new boxes that we can use. We receive many deliveries from suppliers and occasionally they will use expanded chips to help protect the goods in the delivery. So far these have all been the environmentally friendly bio-degradable ones that can be fully recycled. However, instead of throwing these away, we reuse them to help protect your orders. These are safe to compost. Any cardboard boxes and packaging that we receive from suppliers that cannot be reused is sent for recycling. We offer reusable bags with our store.

Safe Shopping Guarantee

We realise that some of our customers might be worried about using their credit cards on the internet. As a result of this, we offer the following reassurance: Secure server software encrypts all your personal information, including name, address and credit card details before it leaves your computer. We make use of the highest quality encryption technology available (technically 256 bit SSL encryption). In addition to this, we do not store your credit card information. All our payment processing is handled by Worldpay or PayPal.
