About Treat Them Green
Who is behind Treat Them Green?
This is currently a one woman operation, set up in 2020 by me, Alice McAnulty.
I am the official gift packer, greetings card writer and post runner, amongst many other things. I make a great coffee, I have good handwriting (or so I am told) and I LOVE to find new eco-friendly products to add to your gift boxes.
I run Treat Them Green out of a small studio in the North Docks of Liverpool.
I love running a business from this amazing city, a place I have adopted as my home after marrying a Scouser. I have found Liverpool to be full of the soundest, friendliest and most generous people I have ever met!
You might notice we stock lots of products made in Liverpool or nearby. I will always try to support local businesses and love finding new products made by our neighbours. You will often find me at local craft fairs scouting for new, awesome eco gifts....
Why was Treat Them Green launched?
Treat Them Green has long been a dream of mine, but I wasn't sure I'd ever be brave enough to actually launch the business.
When Covid hit in March 2020, my husband and I found ourselves on a plane home from a working holiday in New Zealand, with no idea where we would live or what jobs we would be able to find when we landed. After being kindly taken in by family, I had a few weeks of self imposed quarantine, wine, and plenty of time to think. I decided to go for it. It only took a global pandemic to make me take the leap!
I am on a mission to make sustainable gifting enjoyable and stress free.
I've had my fair share of disappointing online gift experiences - like paying a fortune for a sustainable gift set that arrived wrapped in layers of plastic, or my 'eco' products that were drop shipped over from the other side of world with no warning. I have asked myself many times, why is it so hard to shop sustainably?! There are fantastic products out there made by epic independents - I want to bring as many of them together as I can on this website. There will be no plastic wrapping or drop shipping, I promise!
My ultimate goal is to build Treat Them Green based on honesty and transparency around the products, their origins, the packaging etc.
No greenwashing, no bullsh*t. Only great products, made by independent businesses that are worth supporting.
It's a simple idea really - a gift box filled with quality products, packed beautifully in responsible packaging, with a personalised note. I recon that's as close as you can get to the perfect gift!
