Ethical HampersDoes it help you sleep at night?

In the below ramblings we will take you through what makes an ethical hamper, and more specifically what makes our hamper an ethical hamper.

In answer to the second question yes, yes it does. Although that may be the food and booze rather than your conscience. 

Everybody knows that hampers are great, especially when they are packed with style & attention to detail. But typically not much notice is given to our impact on the environment, we are determined to help minimise the wastefulness of gift-giving and make every celebration ethical and environment-friendly.
