Sustainable Statement

As an eco conscious handmade business, Detola and Geek is doing their bit to saving our planet Earth for the future of children. 


We source a lot of the fabrics we use (including non-African prints), lampshade making & packaging supplies from within the UK to reduce our carbon foot print. 


Right from the start, we have always re-used fabric left-overs/scraps. it is from these remnants that our by-products were born like the coasters, candle holders, sketch books, greeting cards, lavender sachets etc. 


We use eco-friendly packaging to wrap my products and they are recyclable & reusable. 

We use bio-degradable cellophane wrapping & brown kraft paper to protect all lampshades & post them out in reusable double walled cardboard boxes. Sometimes the boxes are recycled but I always ensure that they are clean & fit for use. 

Smaller items
We use acid-free tissue paper, brown kraft paper, paper tape
(for the glass candle holders - we may use recycled bubble wrap, in addition, to protect them).
