Eco-craft Ltd is a family business, originally called The Cutting Edge, it was founded by Lorraine and Kevin McCarthy, 25 years ago in Summer 1991. We decided at an very early stage to use recycled paper and card in our products and after having 8 years experience designing and manufacturing our own greetings cards and gifts, we found that more and more craftspeople were asking us to produce blanks for them. We decided therefore, that we should provide an off the shelf range of recycled card blanks available by Mailorder. We currently have the fourth generation in the family associated with the paper industry, previous members having been involved with the manufacturing process. In fact the mill where they worked was the first in the UK to produce kraft paper.(Cooke and Nuttall Horwich) Due to our personal concern for our environment, it is our company policy to offer greener products that are more ecologically sound than their standard counterparts. We source our products from reputable green suppliers wherever possible and take great care to research the credentials of the papers we use. Most of the paper and card are 100% recycled and the majority contain a large proportion of post consumer waste (ie. old brochures, print outs, etc.). The proof of this can be seen in the occasional tiny fleck or speckle which can sometimes be found in the card we stock.
