 A huge thank you for creating such a wonderful Eco bag for Grindleford Primary School. We sold half our stock in the first two days that they went on sale! The feedback from parents has been great.  The bags really do look fabulous and all the pupils are thrilled to have their individual artwork in print!


We're pleased your company was recommended to us as your ethics and ethos sits so well with our fundraising campaign. We are a very small rural school but we have a big goal - to install solar panels and help educate our pupils on the importance of looking after our environment. 


We were selected as one of only 15 schools on the national 10:10 Solar Schools programme in 2014/15. We were delighted to be selected out of 260 schools who registered an interest. We are the first ever school from the Peak District to be offered a place and also the first school from any national park!


Since joining the programme, and once we had secured planning permission, we've been busy fundraising towards our goal of £12,000. We've worked with the local community and businesses to secure donations and to set up events such as our Green Day launch and our hugely successful Summer Fair. 


The Eco bags are a great initiative as they represent every pupil in our school and are perfect for using at the supermarkets and giving to friends and family as Christmas presents. They are really affordable, great quality and good value. 


I'm sure you don't normally work with schools but Lucy and Richard didn't look at all phased when we supplied over 70 individual self portraits for them to work on! The whole process was simple and the communication and customer service was excellent. 


I'm delighted we set aside the other companies which specifically market products for schools and instead decided to work with a company with such strong ethical credentials. We're thrilled with the results!


Thank you for creating such a great product for us to sell and thereby helping us towards our fundraising goal.
