The Ethos that Is Coralee
Thank you so much for viewing our online site.
Hollie & Louise having been inspired by ‘Right Living Goals’ for years and this E-shop and the selling of its wares is one of them.
Environmental & Planetary issues are close to our hearts. The care of plants, animals &, of course, people, through the care of Earth’s soil, water, and air, is important to us.
Coralee's Recycled Packaging Philosophy
We currently package our products in saved and recycled paper, bubble wrap, packets or boxes, where-ever possible.
It may not look fancy but no unnecessary environmental toxins were further created to get your parcel to you.
Our Invoices and printed flyers are made from FSC or recycled paper.
We kindly, ask our Customers to remember to recycle, in whatever way best suits them, the packaging we have sent.
What cannot be put into their council recycling system, we hope and encourage them to re-use.
We are, also, more than happy if they could be so dedicated, to pass on any bubble wrap or packets that cannot yet be commercially recycled, either back to ourselves next we meet, or to others that can make good reuse out of them. We have no need to buy new plastic packaging. As we run out of our saved material we source biodegradable and environmentally sustainable materials for the future.
We hope you like our recycled & eco packaging philosophy.
Coralee's Eco Partners Philosophy
We believe in recycling, reusing, upcycling and cleaning up the planet so we want to bring you products from partners with the same ethos. Why use new virgin materials when there is so much waste scattered around our planet we can use instead?
With this philosophy in mind:-
We are Resellers for Circular&Co who are an award-winning company who design and make in the UK, pioneering and beautiful eco products for the home, all made from recycled UK waste.
"All the simple, easy, economic waste streams of the world have been solved with established infrastructures yet recycling rates still hover around 43%. Global brands and waste management companies recognise we now need to innovate more than ever. New closed loop circular economy solutions are needed to open up new markets and create new demand for waste. This is why we work with all companies, large or small, to research and develop new products and get them to market."
We collaborate with a leading UK, organic clothing brand Rapanui Clothing, through their commercial print-on-demand system for our Circular Economy Organic Cotton blanks for our PURE POSITIVE CLOTHING life affirming range. They have the whole life cycle of these products engineered from the beginning to end, as eco as is possible today. They are award winning inventors for the way forward for sustainable fashion, not to forget their waste product Eco Art Prints either.
"Natural materials, renewable energy and plastic-free packaging"
We have changed e-shop providers, a time consuming migration of hundreds of products, over to a different platform just to be able to work with Prodigi & their PWINTY Platform & Group, for manufacturing art products locally instead of shipping the finished item around the world. Prodigi is the leading, global print-on-demand platform, for top quality art products with over 50+ fine art drop-shipping labs around the world, a Fine Art Trade Guild approved printer.
We are resellers for Beco Pet products. Carefully considered natural rubber, bamboo, hemp rope toys, & recycled plastic toys and pet accessories. "Ethically made to the highest standards"
These are just a few of the Manufactures we have carefully sourced to be a Coralee Trade Supplier. We have many more but you get the idea. We, also, have many more suppliers and products waiting in the pipe line for us to catch up with our ideals.
Coralee's Still Loved Philosophy
Like many people we have some "no good to us" items. Instead of throwing them away perfectly useable, to end up prematurely on a land fill sight or float off to the oceans, we decided to add a bargain basket on our e-shop. This is has grown into a collection of its own. And includes clothes, and consumables like print cartridges & water filters and repaired or improved pre loved jewellery. In the future Hollie would love to upgrade furniture for this collection, like she has been doing nicely for her own home.
Coralee's Community - paying it back
One of our guiding principles is to support community in as many ways as is appropriate to our individual and unique calling. We are very close to being able to support Artists, Crafters and Photographers etc with bringing their creativity to an audience. Right from the beginning we intended for Coralee's Shop to be a place for start ups to be able to follow their passions without all the business, time consuming, techy side of things, or just for fun and company for OAPs, or a creative development for children or special needs adults, etc.
Having spent a good few years setting up a container, platform, environment - we hope our next phase is just around the proverbial corner. Eventually we hope to provide tranquil light and easy environment for the arts and crafts and self development or just plan sanctuary.
Meanwhile if we can support the larger global community with right action, we will.
Our current Community commitments are Plant a Tree With Coralee, our PURE POSITIVE CLOTHING give back. Every month the collaboration of our sales efforts and our Manufacturer, donate profits to tree planting with the larger organisations.
This year 2020 we have, already, registered with UKCOFFEEWEEK in order to join forces for their Charity project. Now in its 10th year, UK Coffee Week is a charitable initiative bringing together the coffee industry, coffee lovers, and a host of brands to have fun and raise funds for our charity Project Waterfall (Delivery partner is WaterAid)– bringing clean water, sanitation, and education to coffee-growing communities.
Our Product Collections are Coffee themed and profits made during the week will be passed on. We hope to enjoy this partnership for many years.
