A Tom Smith Sustainable Christmas

2020 welcomes exciting developments in our range. With a focus on reducing our environmental impact, Tom Smith is proud to support a Glitter-Free Christmas.

We are equally proud to announce that IG Design Group UK has partnered with The Woodland Trust, participating in a fully accredited carbon removal scheme which operates under the UK Government’s Woodland Carbon Code. IG Design Group UK has funded 29,250 m2 of new native woodland in the UK to ensure the CO2 emissions we create from our sea freight activity is fully absorbed from the atmosphere and stored by trees as they grow, mitigating the impact of our business imports on the environment as part of our carbon management programme.

We have made many positive changes this year to remove unnecessary plastic from all products and packaging. 2020 will say goodbye to single-use plastic content in all crackers with replacements in the form of environmentally friendly, useful and keepsake items.

For the second year running, Tom Smith is supporting the Trussell Trust, a charity focussed on ending hunger and poverty in the UK.

The charity supports a nationwide network of food banks to provide emergency food to people locked in poverty whilst campaigning for change to end the need for food banks in the UK. For every sale of any cracker in our 2020 range, a charitable donation will be made to the Trussell Trust, with a minimum contribution of £10,000.
