MEET THE GREENEST MEDALS IN TOWN!
about our medals
Our medals are:
- Plastic free
Made from recycled materials
Use sustainable and biodegradable ribbon
Filled with wildflower seeds so they can be planted and enjoyed by bees for years to come!
Each one is lovingly handmade by Social Enterprises providing commercial working opportunities for learning disabled and disadvantaged people.
We partner with Social Enterprises who support and provide work-based opportunities for learning disabled and disadvantaged people.
Our teams are set up with the machinery required to make each plastic-free medal, from mulching and shredding the recycled paper, to pressing and manufacturing the medals, applying biodegradable labels and threading the sustainable ribbons.
It's important to us that our medals are made to support the environment and the workforce who are making them.
If you would like to find out more about partnership opportunities for your Social Enterprise, please get in touch.
ARE YOU LINKED TO EARTH RUNS?
Yes indeedy, we are. The idea for the medals came to Tash Acres whilst out on a run and, here we are!
Originally the medals were meant to be just for the Earth Runs events, but, we had so many enquries, we had to find a way to let others purchase them. It took a while because we wanted to work with Social Enterprises to develop the manufacturing process.
CAn you ship to...
Currently, our seeded medals can only be purchased in the UK for the UK market. This is because they contain native seeds to Britain.
WHY NOT FACTORY-PRODUCED?
Too often we look for cheap solutions and giveaways to try and get people hooked or to sign them up to our events. We believe there's value in caring for the planet, and caring for the people in it too. It's a much nicer feeling knowing that someone carefully made your medal and put in as much effort in making it as you did in winning it. It makes everyone feel valued.
HOW LONG WILL MY ORDER TAKE?
Because each medal is handmade it depends on the quantity required, however, we try and keep some medals in stock. Send us an enquiry and we'll see what we can do to deliver for your event.
