Sustainability


Here at Potty Mouth HQ, we believe everyone should live a little more green.
We care about our impact on the planet and doing business for good not just for profit.

Although we aren't perfect by any means, we put sustainability at the heart of everything we do, instead of considering it an afterthought. 


Trees For Transactions

Through an ongoing partnership with Tree Nation, we plant a tree for every item we sell on online and in-store. Tree Nation work with local communities in developing countries across the globe to achieve sustainable reforestation. Since we launched this partnership in January 2021, together (you and us!) we have helped plant over 9500+ trees and counting. 

We want to reduce our carbon footprint by reforesting the world, together. Check out our forest, here.  

Packaging For A Better Planet

Our packaging might not be the most glamorous but  it’s designed with the planet in mind. We use kraft paper, acid-free tissue paper, twine and kraft tape to carefully wrap the plants. We then package them up in FSC-certified cardboard boxes with biodegradable packaging peanuts to keep your new friends safe and insulated.

📦 Cardboard can either be reused or recycled.
📦 The kraft tape is made from recycled materials; it can be left on the boxes to be recycled or recycled separately.
📦 Packaging peanuts are made from corn starch. They can either be thrown in your compost bin or washed away down the sink.
📦 Recycled paper can be composted. 
📦 Twine and tissue paper can be composted. 
📦 Stickers must be peeled off and put in your general waste bin. 

Click & Post

Online orders are sent tracked via An Post. They were the first postal service to eliminate carbon emissions in a capital city! They have an electric fleet, and transport routes are all measured to reduce the number of journeys. In time, all city deliveries will be made using electric vehicles.

We’re Always Growing

As a small independent company, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the challenges facing our planet. After all, what difference can one small company like ours make? 

As a company and as individuals, we continue to learn and grow every day. We’re doing everything that we can to become a better, more responsible company for the future by continuing to search for more ethical ways to run Potty Mouth. We stay mindful of our processes and operations, only buying in what we need and limiting waste, investing in lasting quality, and seeking out ethical suppliers and companies whose values chime with ours. We truly believe that together we can all make a difference.


We're always keen to improve our operations, so if you've any feedback or ideas, we'd love to hear from you: hello@pottymouth.ie
