Your time and our world are precious, save both

The Social Supermarket Limited

Social Supermarket was founded by three university friends, Jamie, Alex and Matt. They were driven to create a platform that showcased the UK's most inspiring brands. With Social Supermarket, you are connected to social enterprises who have a positive impact in the world. Each brand that they work with are assessed to meet their high quality standards. Transparency is a key part of Social Supermarket with each product showing icons that indicate its social or environmental impact – for example "repurposed" indicating materials have been diverted from landfill or "charitable contributions" indicating a percentage is donated to a charity for every item sold.

What makes them sustainable?
We use a minimum of 90% recycled cardboard for our gift boxes. Some hampers are delivered in untreated willow or paper rope. We also encourage these boxes to be reused to reduce environmental impact. Our packaging is designed to have as little impact as possible. You can throw the shredded cardboard fill in the recycling. The packing peanuts are actually made from potato starch, so can go straight into your compost bin. Alternatively, you can dissolve them in water. Every hamper or gift contains a short booklet explaining the impact behind our gifts and these are printed on 100% recycled paper which is made at a mill that partly generates its power using waste from the manufacturing process, so is circular. We use vegetable inks in printing processes too, as these are more eco-friendly than alternatives. At Social Supermarket, we endeavour to be as environmentally conscious as possible. We always aim to minimise plastic waste throughout our packaging and products. Every year, we look at how we can tread more lightly on this earth. We donate as best we can to offset any carbon emissions we might create in running our hamper business. We are always looking for ways to improve what we’re doing.
