Our eco responsible ranges

Our R&D department is constantly looking for ethical materials for the design of our structures. We were first to make LED the norm and to recycle our garlands. Bio-print is a recyclable and biodegradable material, which has revolutionised our work, as has Recyprint, a product made from plastic bottles. We are a recognised partner of WWF for our efforts to clean up the oceans. 

We now also offer a full summer range to create beautiful scenes.
