Ethics & Sustainability

Here at The Drifting Bear Co we provide products that are made to last a lifetime. We are passionate about the environment, the ocean, our planet, and the future of our children.

Packaging
We are committed to using plastic-free, recyclable or biodegradable packaging where possible. The majority of the packaging we use consists of paper and card. Our regular sized prints are packaged (and always have been) in clear sleeves made from corn starch and are fully biodegradable, breaking down to just CO2 & H2O. Our cushions are packaged in fully biodegradable bags made from sugar cane. They are also carbon neutral and fully recyclable.

Energy
Drifting Bear HQ in South Devon is 100% powered by UK generated renewable electricity.
The energy we use is harvested from the sun, wind and rain.

Sustainable Oak & FSC Frames
All our oak is sourced from sustainable forests. We are honoured to work with the only picture framer in Europe who is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified, meaning we can guarantee all our 'Premium FSC' frames are made from materials from a sustainable source, and the supply chain can be traced right back to the forest.

Organic Cotton
This year we are adding organic natural 100% cotton available as an option on all our cushions.

We plant trees
For each order placed, we work with our reforestation partners around the globe to plant one tree in an area of the world that needs it most. Read more about our tree planting here.

Responsible Down Standards
All our duck feather filling is certified under the ‘Responsible Down Standards’. The Responsible Down Standard aims to ensure that down and feathers come from animals that have not been subjected to an unnecessary harm.

Our goals for 2020
• We intend to be 100% plastic-free by 2020 (we're working on our suppliers!).
We're aiming to plant over 1000 varied native tree species all over the globe, in the areas that need them most.
