From Nature : For Nature
Based in the greenest city in the UK; nature is at the heart of what we do and we aim to reflect this in every pair of Birds and the impact they have, whether that’s creating new innovative materials or planting our very own forest.
Our Bio-acetate is an eco-friendly version of plastic that has a lower carbon footprint than traditional acetate.

- High strength, flexible, and repairable
Aluminium is one of the most recycled, and most recyclable materials on the planet. Nearly 75% of all aluminium produced is still in use today. Aluminium can be recycled directly back into itself over and over again in a true closed loop. Recycling aluminium saves more than 90 % of the energy required versus producing new metal.
Our wooden frames are built from FSC approved wood or Bamboo. All our woods are from suppliers verified by The Forestry Stewardship Council who promote the safe management of forests.
Bean Based Frames
Birdies are made from processed castor beans, a new (and old) natural polymer that is lighter than aluminium and strong enough to be used in vehicles. The low-density material is 10 times stronger than the plastics in car bumpers, and 13 times stronger than common bioplastics. Castor plants grow extremely fast and do not require pesticides or chemicals to thrive.
Cork is a renewable material, a cork tree can be harvested once every 9-14 years during its 200-300-year lifespan, supplying cork for many generations. The process of harvesting cork has small ecological footprint, and we love it because it's both recyclable and biodegradable.
We've been refining and redefining our packaging to have minimal impact on the environment since we started. Our newest addition is a hexagonal delight to our beloved nest box. We've teamed up with Flexi-hex and use their incredible paper sleeves to keep our Birds snug inside
their boxes as they journey to find new faces.
Our boxes and packaging go above and beyond in more ways than one... they are made from over 85% recycled paper pulp while all virgin paper is FSC Certified.
