Meaningful Mother’s Day Gifts

This year, we want to say a proper ‘Thank You’ to our Mums. We always try to find thoughtful gifts, but sometimes it’s hard to come up with gifts that will actually be useful and appreciated too!

We had a thought about what our mums would like and how we would like to treat them, and we put together this guide to help you choose.

Treat your Mum

If your Mum loves to have a bath but rarely finds the time, why not get her an Ultimate Bath Gift Basket  (£32) from The Natural Gift Company. But also offer to do the ironing or take the dog for a walk so that she has the time to take advantage of these gorgeous goodies relaxing in the bath. A double gift that she will really appreciate.

Style Your Mum

We really love the Peacock Print Bamboo Scarf  (£26) Generously-sized and silky-soft this bamboo fabric scarf  is naturally thermo regulating, so this scarf works well in warmer weather as well as colder days. And as an extra bonus – it is large enough to be worn in the summer as a sarong, the perfect gift to enjoy all year round.

Green Your Mum

Some Mums love to be practical – maybe your mum would like to cut down on waste in the home. If so, we can really recommend some Abeego (From £13).

Available in 4 different sizes and a variety pack, Abeego is the original all natural beeswax food wrap. The unique design extends the life of fresh food, preserves natural flavours and creates less food waste.  Abeego is the ultimate earth-friendly replacement for disposable plastic wraps and bags. An excellent choice for an eco-conscious Mum!

De-stress Your Mum (or Mum to Be!)

Perhaps your Mum has a lot to juggle and may, occasionally, need a helping hand to survive the pressures of modern day life! The Natural Gift Company’s Mum’s Ultimate Survival Gift Box  has hand-picked natural products half of which are designed to pick you up and the other half to help you wind down! Perfect for saying thank you to a hard working mum who deserves a little pampering! The contents of the gift set are completely ethical, containing a selection of organic, natural and vegan British made products that are safe for Mums and Mum’s-To-Be. Ultimate_Survival_Main_X

This perfect, thoughtful gift can be personalised with a printed gift label or you can write your own message on the gift tag.

We hope you have found some inspiration here to treat your Mum to something that will make her smile this Mother’s Day…

Green Tulip in 2017: Our Highlights

Green Tulip in 2017

2017 was a great year for us here at Green Tulip and before we throw ourselves fully into 2018 we thought it would be nice to look back at some of the highlights. First up – of course – was the fact we celebrated our 10th Birthday in July! That makes us quite an old lady in website terms, and positively ancient in ethical website terms! So many new websites have started up in the last year as the interest in ethical shopping has grown, and I think we’re rightly proud to have been one of the very first.

Customers’ interest in ethical and sustainable shopping has definitely increased throughout the year. We’ve seen this in many way – with more mentions on Social Media channels generally, and for us at Green Tulip. We’ve also seen customers buying a lot more products from us, and have seen a wider range of gifts being chosen (with some customers buying for all the family including the cat! 🐱) which is lovely to see and suggests that our customers not only love our products, but like to share their love of them too.

Environmental news stories have been extremely high profile this year. The main ones that spring to mind are worrying reports about the amount of plastics in the oceans, the ban on micro-beads and the fabulous Blue Planet II series highlighted the need for sustainable alternatives to single use plastics and sustainability in general 🌍 💚 We’ve also seen a huge growth in the zero waste movement – something that is a real focus for me personally – and it’s exciting to see how much further this will develop in 2018. The fact that these issues, many of which we’ve been aware of for years, are making the mainstream media is a real highlight of 2018.

July saw a trial of plastic-free living for one of our team members, Kate, and her family. You can see how they faired in this great blog post she wrote – Plastic Free July- The Roundup. I’m pleased to say cutting out the top four plastic polluters was easier than she had expected and remains a goal for her into 2018.

As an online business we’ve always been very conscious of the way we package our orders and have always used only second hand/reused or biodegradable packaging. This has included reusing products like plastic air bags and bubble wrap that we receive in our incoming deliveries. However in 2017 we saw a real shift in how our customers would like their orders packaged, and found that many customers would prefer not to have any plastic at all in their delivery.

In response we have added an option at checkout so that our customers can choose to receive their orders with no plastic packaging. We ask at checkout: “The majority of our orders are packed in reused materials – boxes and packaging received from our suppliers and friends/family/employees! This can include plastic bubble wrap, air bags and loose fill, as well as paper and card. If you would prefer for us to use NO plastic packaging (even if it is recycled) when packing your order then please check this box” ♻️ 💚

So far we’re probably finding about 50% of our buyers are asking for no plastic packaging, but those that don’t check the box now know that what they are receiving is reused or donated. A win win for everyone! 🙌

So all in all 2017 has been a great year for Green Tulip, and the wider world of fair and sustainable living.  We’re very much looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that 2018 will bring and will be sharing some of our predictions and news for 2018 soon.

Happy New Year from all of us 💚🌍

Deborah’s Green Tulip Christmas List

Deborah's Christmas Shopping List.jpg

My favourite part of my job is when I am writing the descriptions of all the new products to put on the Green Tulip website. I usually sit at my desk with the goodies in front of me thinking about how I can describe a smell or a taste or how soft and gorgeous something is! It’s quite a challenge sometimes to come up with the right words as I have written the descriptions for several thousand gorgeous gifts over the last 7 years!

You may think it would therefore be easy for me to choose some presents for my family but because I know so much about everything we sell it was actually a challenge narrowing it down to just 3 gifts for each one!

Mother In Law

Trying to find a gift for a mother in law who has everything is a pretty challenging task – going down the alcohol or chocolate route can sometimes be a little predictable, especially when it’s wrapped! A bottle is just a bottle at the end of the day and doesn’t feel all that special when it comes to Christmas time. So with that in mind, I know that my mother in law would like a little something healthy (other than a tipple!) to help her mind relax at night time. And as she is jetting off to Australia for the festive period (where it is summer!!) here are my choices:

The Serenity Slumber Pillow Mist (£12) is 100% natural, made with distilled floral waters infused with a blend of mood soothing and de-stressing ylang ylang, geranium, sweet orange, cedarwood, patchouli and lavender essential oils to relax and aid sleep.  Because it is made with only with natural and organic ingredients it will not stain pillowcases.

The Sleep Tight Natural Gift Set (£23) is also a great choice with the pulse point roller which means she can take it to help her relax on her long flight to Australia.

Another great idea is the Lace Fan Bamboo Scarf (£26) for her to take to Australia. Bamboo fabric is naturally thermo regulating, so this scarf works well in warmer weather as well as colder days. It also doubles up as a sarong so is perfect for her holiday ☀️

Adult Son

When boys start getting a little older and turning into adults, I think most start to recognise and appreciate quality, and are more interested in where things come from.  They start to care about unnecessary waste and want to know that things are made using clean processes and fair working conditions.

Niall is 23, and a freelance broadcaster so works odd hours and has a 2 hour commute to work so spends a lot of time in the car. He quite often prepares himself some lunch in the morning and takes it with him to have later in the car as he usually gets home quite late in the evening.

A good gift for him would be the Leak Resistant Rectangle Lunch Box with Silicone Seal (£18) He enjoys healthy food and doesn’t have much spare cash to splash on lunch every day, so this lunch box means he can prepare his favourite dishes (usually containing lots of garlic and chorizo!) at home and take them with him.

Another good choice to accompany the lunch box would be the bamboo Large Spork Two.0 (£3.75) with the long handle it is easier to eat a pasta dish or wholesome salad with than its smaller versions.

Obviously, like most young men, Niall enjoys a good beer during his leisure time.  He is into flavoursome craft beers and last year has also taken on a challenge with a friend to try a beer from each country of the world (not all in the same week I hasten to add!).  He would love the Wild Beer Company Tumblers (£15) a pair of tall glasses that have been up-cycled in Cornwall from the original beer bottle.  Wild Beer Company ales are brewed in Somerset, and many have unusual and seasonal flavours blended using ingredients foraged from the wild.

My Adult Niece

My niece Laura has just moved into a beautiful cottage in the middle of the Wiltshire countryside so was extremely easy to buy for this year!  Even though they have just installed a lovely log burner in her living room,  the rest of the cottage is fuelled by oil filled radiators and this recent cold snap has certainly taken its toll as she still currently saving up to buy oil!

I think Laura would appreciate a lovely grey Chunky Knit Recycled Wool Throw to snuggle up with.   She loves her home comforts and the fact that it is made from recycled wool clothing which is cleaned, broken down into fibres and spun into yarn makes it more special to give as a gift.

Laura is also a huge wildlife enthusiast, and loves anything stag or pheasant related!  This beautifully illustrated A5 Stag Notebook would be great for her to jot down reminders and to-do notes now that she is running her own tight ship! There is also the added bonus for her to know that a donation is made to Woodland Trust for every item sold.

As it’s Laura’s first Christmas in her cottage, she is extremely excited about making it all lovely and Christmassy!  I thought a nice festive aroma would be great so chose the Orange, Clove & Cinnamon Boxed Candle (£9.50).

Now that I have three of my family ticked off my present list it is time for me to have a think about what I might like for myself. After all with a husband and two sons they do need a hint or two dropped!

Cat’s Green Tulip Christmas Shopping List

Cat's Christmas Shopping List.jpgI love packing our customer’s orders – sometimes they look (and smell) so gorgeous it inspires me to think which of my friends and family an order would most appeal to! Getting to know the products gives me a real sense of familiarity with them and I have some firm favourites.

Here’s my list of who I am buying for this Christmas and what I have chosen. It was so difficult, at times I realised I was choosing all my favourites – mentally shopping for myself!? Oops, it’s a bit of an occupational hazard at Green Tulip!

For my adorable, young-girl cousin

My cousin’s daughter is 18 months old and just adorable! Just learning to walk and talk and express her own opinions.  She loves dogs and animals and exploring the beaches near where they live in West Wales. I chose:

My First Camera (£11) This cute ‘first’ camera should be a real hit.  Really smooth and chunky to hold, with kaleidoscope lens, pushable shutter button and a dotty wrist strap.  She will love asking friends, pets and family to say ‘cheese’ for her!

A Fluf organic candy stripe backpack (£28) which actually also doubles as a lunch bag. Cute and compact, it makes a perfect hands-free lunch kit bag and is a great size for independent children who like to be in charge of carrying their own essentials!

Plan Toys Happy Puppy (£17) a gorgeous wooden pull-along puppy with a flexible neck and body, and uneven hind wheels giving him a cute, wobbly walk.  Perfect for this little dog lover!

Recyled Wool Mermaid/Princess Puppet (£5) fantastic wool character puppets, hand made in Canada from upcycled clothing, so each puppet will always be the same shape, however no two mermaids will ever be the same! These are great for encouraging imaginative play and making up stories. The mermaid puppets have real character – a full head of hair, bra top and of course a fishy tail!

For my gorgeous, grown-up girl cousin

My cousin is 25 yrs old and loves the outside, yoga, cooking and enjoying life!

As a vegan, finding gorgeous looking and delicious chocolate can be a challenge, but not with Cocoa Loco’s Organic Dark Chocolate & Raspberry Stars (£4.50) These heavenly stars are made from Cocoa Loco’s velvety smooth dark chocolate adorned with tasty pieces of freeze dried raspberry. A lovely treat!

As a gluten free vegan, she is having to experiment with what she can eat and a lunch container would be a great gift for her, as she is a busy teacher who wants tasty food that suits her diet. A Slice of Green Two Tier Rectangle Lunch Box with Mini Container (£22) is perfect to fit a full and varied lunch.

For her glam side, I think a Natural Gift Company Sparkling Natural Gift Set (£20) is a really nice treat. Packed with a pink fizz candle, and prosecco bath melt, lip balm and soap, a night on the fizz that won’t result in a hang over!

And finally, for relaxing after a hard day at school, a warm bath with Living Naturally’s Coconut Milk & Rose Bathtub Tea (£8.50) is just the job to calm and rejuvenate.  100% vegan, natural, organic and free from SLS’s, parabens, mineral oils, artificial additives and fragrances.

For my velvet-soft cat – Meg

My beautiful, long-haired black cat, Meg, loves treats, toys and cuddles – no surprises there!

Lily’s Kitchen Christmas Cracker Treats (£3) are tempting treats, bursting with freshly prepared turkey, chicken liver and cranberries. Made in the UK from natural wholesome ingredients. 🐱

I love to snuggle up on the sofa with Meg and relax, so I guess this is more a present for me, but I don’t mind sharing! A ReSpiin Recycled Wool Throw  (£45) is perfect for us both.  Made responsibly in India from recycled wool clothing, the colour is a result of the original wool fabrics – no dyes are added. It is beautiful and soft- just like Meg – and also won’t show too many of her hairs!

Beco’s Freddie the Fish Cat Toy (£5) is a very bright goldfish who is soft yet durable due to his thick skin and double stitching.  He is made from an eco-friendly fabric made from recycled plastic bottle caps and (just to make him irresistible) he is stuffed with North American catnip!

It’s back to work packing those Christmas orders for me now! Happy Christmas!

Kate’s Green Tulip Christmas Shopping List

 

Kate's Christmas Shopping List - 2 dogs

We have so many gorgeous, lovely gifts at Green Tulip and as they all have to be photographed for the website, I spend quite a lot of my time thinking ‘Oo, I’d like this’. But of course, I don’t buy everything I like (I’d be broke!) just make a mental list of those I ‘need’ and pass on the list to my family for Christmas and birthdays. Which got me thinking about all the lovely things I could get them for Christmas! So here are a few of my favourites:

Husband

Husbands like cycling, DIY, walking the dogs, beer and cooking the occasional hot curry! At least mine does, but I’m betting there’s a few more out there… So here’s my choices for him (and I really hope he’s not going to read this blog!).

  • The Lucky Buddha Beer Glass  (£10) has been creatively reformed from a used Lucky beer bottle. Lucky is a light, Asian-style lager brewed and bottled in China and the bottle famously features an embossed Buddha design. Perfect as an accompaniment to the curry!
  • The Thought Cycling socks (£6) are made from sustainable bamboo fabric which  is naturally thermo regulating, so as well as keeping feet warm, these socks can just as importantly keep feet cool in the heat. No more sweaty feet 🙌
  • Of course with all the cycling, DIY, dog walking and cooking, he’s going to need to keep clean, so Soap Daze Black Pepper & Ginger Soap on a Rope (£8) is perfect for the shower and the sink. And it’s retro – ‘soap on a rope’ will deliver a laugh as well as a great present!
  • Sourced Life’s Upcycled Truck Tarpaulin Washbag (£24) is a ‘one of a kind’ for your ‘one of a kind’!! Every wash bag is a true ‘one-off’ due to its upcycled material and may show signs of wear with rugged markings from a past life hammering the highways of Europe – we call it character!

Dogs

I love my dogs 😍 and I start thinking about what to get them for Christmas way before anyone else.  We have the tradition that the youngest goes first when unwrapping presents on Christmas morning, the dogs agree with this as they are the babies, mayhem ensues and we end up laughing (and videoing) so much that our presents get forgotten for a while! Here are a few of the gifts I have decided to wrap up for them this year.

  • Lily’s Kitchen Christmas Cracker Treats for Dogs (£3.50) are bursting with freshly prepared turkey, cranberries and thyme.  Includes a sprinkling of cinnamon – a wonderfully warming anti-inflammatory that helps boost energy, circulation and brain health. Perfect for 8 year old Poppy so she can keep up with Barney!
  • Beco Rope (Medium £5) is a 100% natural rope toy made from durable cotton and sustainably sourced hemp.  Hemp is naturally antibacterial and can therefore help to keep teeth clean. It also has short fibres that are easily digested if swallowed.  And it’s great for playing ‘pulley’ which is Poppy and Barney’s favourite game.
  • The Beco Bone (Medium £10) is a vanilla-scented dog bone with hole to fill with treats for hours of fun. And as it is made from sustainable rice husk rubber, it is sturdy, eco-friendly and non-toxic. Important for young Barney who likes to test his toys to the point of destruction!
  • After all the fun and excitement of Christmas day (every day for our 2 pooches) bedtime relaxation is essential with Lily’s Kitchen Organic Bedtime Biscuits. (£3) They contain probiotic yoghurt as well as organic chamomile and passion flowers to aid calmness for a good night’s sleep.  They are also hypoallergenic and wheat/gluten free with no chemicals or anything artificial. From 4 months, so perfect for baby Barney 🐶

Mum

A tough one- not to choose for, but how to limit the choices! My mum loves painting, baking, gardening, chocolate, walking the dogs and looking after her grandchildren (I’m fairly sure about the last part!). Here are just some of the lovely gifts my Mum can expect this Christmas🎄

  • The beautiful Paper High Purple Leather Journal  (£15) with leather thong closure and criss-cross stitch binding detail at the spine, has recycled cotton paper pages, hand made from rags left over from the Indian garment industry. A lovely gift for sketching or jotting down notes.
  • Manumit’s Silk & Linen Stripe Scarf  (£10) in grape is Fair Trade and made from a mix of a soft linen/silk blend and slubby pure silk, making it extra soft and comfy to wear. A perfect way to dress up any outfit.
  • Our Natural Gift Company Ultimate Lavender Natural Gift Set (£26) is perfect for my mum as she loves the calming fragrance of lavender. Packed with gorgeous, natural lavender goodies, hopefully she will be serene when the grandchildren come to visit!
  • She is also partial to the occasional chocolate, so I think she will love these Cocoa Loco Organic Sloe Gin Truffles (£6.50) Six smooth and rich mouthfuls of Sloe Gin and chocolate heaven made with a subtle Sloe Gin ganache and dusted in deliciously sweet raspberry. An unusual and sophisticated Christmas treat.

Happily, I now have a comprehensive Christmas list, which I am about to make public, so apart from the dogs who can’t read, there is no changing my mind. Although with these gorgeous Green Tulip goodies, I don’t think I’d want to!

Watch out for the other Green Tulip team member’s Christmas shopping lists which will be coming over the next few weeks!

Happy shopping!

Green Tulip’s Green Fingers!

 

GREEN TULIP'S GREEN FINGERS

At work, I deal with beautiful and ‘green’ products- photographing and researching them and it’s a very pleasant way to spend time in the office! But as soon as I get home, the gloves go on and the gardening begins!

If you live in the countryside, or are lucky enough to have a garden in a city or town then the chances are, you have learnt a bit about gardening! It also won’t have escaped your attention that there is a ‘growing’ movement towards using your outdoor space to grow your own food. This is actually a ‘regrowth’ as until the 1950’s/60’s British gardens were often the primary source of fresh fruit and veg for the family home. And we all remember the ‘Dig For Victory’ campaign during the Second World War where gardens, parks, school grounds and even the moat around the Tower of London were all turned into allotments to support the war effort.

I have grown fruits and veggies since I was a child at middle school. And even though we have moved many times, I have always managed to find both the space and the time. Now we live in the Wiltshire countryside and have a lovely big garden so it’s easy to find the space, and I make sure I have the time!  But please don’t think it can’t be done elsewhere!

Why Now?

So, why should we do it now?! There are a lot of reasons why NOT that is for sure: There’s plenty of good quality food in our supermarkets, with huge amounts of variety to choose from. We are busier than ever with work, social life, children, and all the activities that our modern lives and budgets can afford. We have apps that can deliver fresh, organic food to our doorsteps at the click of a button. Our gardens and outdoor spaces are shrinking.

Well, to counteract this let me give you a few reasons why we should-

  • It’s fun, trust me, it is!
  • The whole family can get stuck in. There is no upper or lower age limit on gardening. Younger people will learn so much from managing to grow, harvest, cook and eat the produce. Older people will benefit from time outdoors and the extra bit of exercise and achievement
  • Most spaces can be adapted to different abilities and mobility- see this post from the Ability Superstore.
  • You can garden pretty much anywhere; be radical- grow radishes in your window box! Vertical Veg have ideas on how to get started in any small space- patio, balcony, windowsill. And this blog will show you how to make a pocket garden for a wall or fence

     

There are so many benefits – here’s just a few of them:

  • Healthier for you- homegrown has more nutrients and will be fresher.
  • Healthier for your environment- you may choose to garden without pesticides , good news for your insect friends!
  • Physical activity is boosted.
  • Save money at the supermarket.
  • Encourage children to try new fruits and veg.
  • Learning new skills helps keep your brain sharp.
  • Gardening has been linked to improved mental health and well being, this leaflet from Thrive explains more.
  • Community gardening or sharing with neighbours builds a sense of community. Excesses & gluts can be shared with others, you will always end up with more if you are prepared to share! We delivered courgettes around our street and came back with, apples, jam, & homemade biscuits! Yum!

How to get started

You will need to dedicate a space, get some simple equipment- not much- a trowel, a bucket some plant pots and a pair of gardening gloves will do for a start! And you will need to decide what you want to grow! Easy veggies and fruits to grow include:

  • Salad Leaves. Crunchy fresh leaves with a fantastic range of textures and flavours.
  • Spring onions and Radishes.
  • Potatoes.
  • Peas.
  • Mint.
  • Broad Beans.
  • Runner Beans.
  • Onions.
  • Strawberries.

You can pick up seeds or seedlings from supermarkets, homeware stores and garden centres, or, like me you can have a catalogue delivered and circle all the ones you want like a child just before Christmas! Local seed swaps are great if you want to try out before spending lots of money, check your local paper or online magazine for dates.

For a complete beginners guide to starting gardening, The Royal Horticultural Society is the place to go. This guide has all the information you need, and the internet is at your (green) fingertips!

Growing your own vegetables will make you a happier person- as one of my favourite quotes says:

Gardening is cheaper than therapy ... and you get tomatoes!.jpg

We will be adding blogs as the seasons go on to help you decide what to grow and what to make with the fruits of your labours!

Don’t just Organic Your September: Organic All Year Round!

banner1.jpg

Has the current Soil Association campaign ‘Organic Your September‘ piqued your interest? Here’s what you need to know:

Why choose organic?

IMG_20170709_134552

The Soil Association  has all the answers, here’s a list of the main reasons:

  • It’s naturally different – Studies show higher levels of some nutrients and lower levels of pesticides and chemical residues in food.
  • Know what your eating – GM ingredients, hydrogenated fats and some artificial colours and preservatives are banned under organic standards.
  • Combat climate change – Organic farming offers the best currently available, practical model for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in agriculture.
  • Protect British Wildlife – Organic farms are havens for wildlife and provide homes for bees, birds, butterflies. There is up to 50% more wildlife than on non-organic farms.
  • Reduce exposure to pesticides – The best way is to buy organic as they will contain overall fewer pesticides.

The future of the organic market looks healthy.   The UK organic market is now in its fifth year of strong growth and worth £2.09 billion. Total sales of organic increased by 7.1% in 2016!

How to go Organic

vegetables-790022_960_720

We all have to stick to a budget and deciding to go organic has to be affordable. Here are a few ideas to help increase your organic purchasing without breaking the purse strings!

  • Budget supermarket chains are expanding their organic ranges, whilst keeping the prices low.
  • Organic box schemes like Riverford Organic  give a good choice of fruit, vegetables, meat and dairy products, all at market prices.
  • Look for accreditation, The Soil Association is the main accrediting body for organic products in the UK.  Have a look at their website to see what their organic criteria are.
  • Buy less meat; organic meat may be more expensive than cheap supermarket factory farmed meat, but it is better for us, better for the environment and much tastier too!
  • Try swapping to organic on as many products as you can – and prioritise those that you choose. Here is a useful list of the so called ‘Dirty Dozen’ which are foods containing potentially higher levels of pesticides.
  • Keeping your food alive! Once you have bought your organic produce – do also consider using a beeswax wrap to help store and keep your food fresh.  Beeswax wrap is reusable and makes an excellent alternative to plastic film wrap.
  • Don’t forget about household cleaning and clothes washing. Our organic soapnut shells are both organic and wonderfully economic as they can be reused many times.

Organic gifts

What better way to tell someone you care than to buy them a gift that is good for them, good for the environment and beautiful too? Our favourites include:

  • Dark Chocolate Organic Lip Balm made with 100% natural, protective and nutritive oils, butters and plant wax.  Containing protective and nutritive oils, butters and plant wax, enhanced with organic soapnut extract, chickweed, calendula and marshmallow – A handy little tin of organic chocolate for your lips!
  • ‘Organic Surge’ this range offers great value, natural skin care products made from nourishing ingredients and fragrant organic essential oils and are 100% free of harsh chemicals. The Clove, Orange & Geranium Foaming Bath contains sensual patchouli and spicy clove-bud, which help to de-stress and revive the body and mind, while natural aloe vera soothes the skin – And it smells amazing!
  • And for the little ones…This adorable Organic Cotton Octopus Rattle is the perfect size for little hands to shake! He looks very cool with his green, pink and blue pastel stripes and large googly eyes, and has eight legs which are perfect to grab hold of to chew on!

Organic All Year

We hope we’ve inspired you to ‘Organic Your September’ but also your October, November and on! You can visit the Green Tulip website to find out about all the ethical categories we work to and also check out our Pinterest page for lots of organic inspiration.
