Sustainability at Gretna Green

How we put the Green, in Gretna Green

As well as producing the best customer experience, for our brides and shoppers, we at Gretna Green care passionately for our planet. We have therefore taken small, but important steps in ensuring we are doing everything we can to be a sustainable brand. After all, how can we be the Home of Romance without giving a little love back to our planet? 

Paper Bubble Wrap

To ensure your product is safely packaged but also environmentally friendly we have opted for paper bubble wrap when we can, meaning that our bubble wrap can be recycled and or composted. Plastic bubble wrap takes up huge amounts of space in landfills, and can take hundreds of years to disintegrate! So we try to limit this wherever we can. This is especially important to us over the Christmas period when we see a massive increase in gifting products.

Recycling From our Suppliers

Using paper bubble wrap is not the only step we take to ensure we are delivering parcels in the most environmentally friendly way. We also shred all unwanted boxes from our suppliers and shred all cardboard in our own warehouse to fill our parcels. This way we can reuse our own cardboard as well as take advantage of the additional boxes we get from our suppliers. This makes sure that your product is delivered in the best way possible as well as being kind to our planet. 

Local Suppliers

We take pride in our geography, and as a result, try to take advantage of our amazing local suppliers from both sides of the borders. Not only does this limit our carbon footprint but it also helps us support local communities around us. 

Our Green space

Here at Gretna Green, we are blessed to have a vast amount of fields surrounding our attractions. This means we have plenty of space for our wildlife to flourish and create our own little ecosystem supporting bees and pollination across Gretna Green village. This also means we have plenty of walks so our customers and colleagues can fill their lungs with fresh air. 

Biomass Boilers

Over at our Famous Blacksmith Shop, Smiths Hotel and Old Toll Bar cafe we also use biomass boilers. These are extremely beneficial in limiting our carbon footprint, as biomass is classed as carbon-neutral and is a 100% renewable energy source. We also use solar panelling at our Famous Blacksmith Shop, again decreasing our overall carbon footprint and doing our bit to provide sustainable, quality customer service.  

Biodegradable Confetti 

Of course, we cannot forget to make our weddings as eco-friendly as possible. That’s why we only sell and allow the use of biodegradable confetti in our wedding venues.
