Ethical brand ratings and accreditation since 2001

The Green Stationery Company

How ethical is The Green Stationery Company?

The Green Stationery Company, a family-run company based out of Bath, is one of The Good Shopping Guide’s ethically accredited brands.

The Good Shopping Guide does not currently rate stationery companies, and so this company does not appear on our ethical ratings tables. However, The Green Stationery Company is featured on our list of the Top 200 Ethical Businesses and was awarded our Ethical Accreditation for its environmental and ethical initiatives.

In which areas does The Green Stationery Company perform well?

The Green Stationery Company performs well in its commitment to the Environment and reducing the environmental impact of stationery consumption and production.

This brand is inspired by the economist, Schumacher and his book, Small Is Beautiful. The Green Stationery Company deliberately keeps its business small in order to maintain a low level of resource and energy consumption and to create an economically sustainable company that does not overproduce or underpay a large staff team.

What makes The Green Stationery Company so sustainable?

The Green Stationery Company has a wide range of sustainable initiatives that further the brand’s ethical status. The brand manufactures and imports stationery that is recycled, made from low-impact fibres, and is long-life and durable. It stocks glue products made from almonds and vegetable starch, and orders are sent in recyclable packaging.

The Green Stationery Company’s office is powered by Ecotricity, and also carbon offsets its fuel emissions with Rainforest Concern’s Forest Credits initiative. If you live locally in Bath, this company can even deliver your order by bike!

And it’s not just stationery. The Green Stationery Company also stocks recycled office furniture and eco-conscious cleaning products. (You can check out our ratings table for Ethical Cleaning Products here.)

How did The Green Stationery Company attain Ethical Accreditation?

The Green Stationery Company has attained Ethical Accreditation from The Good Shopping Guide. This involved an application process and a full review of the brand’s ethical policies and practices. The Green Stationery Company is subject to an annual review to ensure the company maintains high ethical standards.

As a result, The Green Stationery Company is permitted to use our Good Shopping Guide Ethical logo, which certifies the brand’s ethical status and allows consumers to recognise The Green Stationery Company as an ethical brand.
