Pin Head is leading the way within the pin community by switching plastic packaging for paper encouraging other pin sellers to put pressure on their own suppliers. The little see-through ‘baggies’ that every single pin traditionally comes in to protect them in transit are so unnecessary and harmful to the environment. Pin Head has worked closely with the manufacturers in China, swapping from single-use plastic to little paper seed packets instead. These can be recycled. We will continue to make improvements across the business to reduce waste and make changes that will cut down the impact on the earth. At the moment we are not in a position to tell the total carbon footprint of pin production of the pins but we are working on gathering this information and also doing everything we can to offset.
