Being passionate about the environment I endeavour to ensure that every aspect of Estrele Cakes, from baking to packaging, is as sustainable, ethical and responsibly sourced as possible.
I strive to use locally produced and organic ingredients where possible.
Almost everything sent with your biscuit orders is designed to be reused (tissue paper for gift wrap) and I source my packaging from recycled card/paper stock, as well as reusing postal boxes and padding from neighbours and friends.
While constantly checking the market recently some suitable compostable bags have come on it. So I am very pleased to be able to make this change for my biscuits (please note that I do still have some non compostable stock to use up).
Looking to further reduce my environmental footprint and give back I am very excited to have partnered with One Tree Planted to plant one tree per order placed here with Estrele Cakes (and by email). One Tree Planted it a non-profit organisation focused on reforesting the planet and once a month my orders will be counted and a donation made to plant trees with them where they are most needed.
