Who is behind Treat Them Green?
Founder, coffee maker, gift packer - Alice McAnulty.
This is currently a one woman operation, working out of a small studio in Liverpool. Whenever you contact 'us' you'll be talking to me!
Treat Them Green has long been a dream of mine, but I wasn't sure I'd ever be brave enough to launch the business. When Covid hit in March 2020, my husband and I found ourselves on a plane home from 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!
