Waste not! 
 
“The latest delivery of offcuts and waste wood from ‘Plantabox' has just gone to a wonderful 90 year old man living in an isolated cottage in East Devon. 
“Thank you so very much for the beautiful Planter that you created for me… 
 
I’m thrilled with it and so too is my daughter. I’ve bought it as a gift for her grandparents which she will give to them for Christmas. The personalisation on it makes it so precious, you will never truly understand just what it means to us all, I can’t put it into words. All I can say is a massive thank you. It will be in our family for many years to come.” 
 
We know how lucky we are to get messages such as this in response to our work. To be a small part of helping people mark their most important relationships and moments is something we are always grateful for. 
Plantabox is a business founded on producing sustainable, quality handcrafted products right here in the UK. Clearly by working with wood we avoid all the issues of plastic but we’ve also spent some time considering what more we could do. As you can imagine our business produces an amount of wood off-cuts which we thought would be ideal as fuel for those in need. 
 
The approach of winter is dreaded by many 
 
Fuel poverty disproportionately affects the elderly but anyone who does not have enough fuel to heat their home and cook is defined as being in this position. Clearly the health implications over a cold winter are tough to think about. 
 
All our Plantabox products are hand-made and personalised for you! 
 
Just to keep you informed. 
 
With Brexit now a reality, we are starting to experience some issues with deliveries to European countries, especially Ireland. A number of packages, sent via our courier DPD, have been returned by customs with no comments or instructions to enable us to correct paperwork and enable the delivery to proceed. We are doing our best to rectify this. 
 
We also want to make customers aware that in some cases, where a delivery is successfully made into Europe, an additional customs charge may be applied. We are afraid that we are unable to influence this charge, and being a small company, we are unable to refund these additional costs.
