Home and Garden
Agile Home and Garden was created with the ambition of producing more eco conscious alternatives for home and garden use.
We try to use little or no plastic and produce attractive products made from natural materials. For now our collection is quite modest, but we aim to continue to innovate beautiful and practical low impact solutions.
It makes sense.
"Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better." - Maya Angelou.
We'll do better until we know even better.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY DO ALL PRODUCTS LINK TO AMAZON?
In short, it's cheaper. For us and for you.
Being a (very) small business, we fulfil all of our orders via our Amazon store. This keep things simple and helps to keep costs down.
If we sold items on this website we would incur additional fees from whichever payment gateway we were using, while still relying on Amazon fulfilment services to store and deliver the item. (We don't run a warehouse).
This would drive up costs and mandate that our products were more expensive on our own website.
We didn't want that.
HOW ARE YOUR PRODUCTS ECO FRIENDLY?
We try to make our products as sustainable and low impact as we can. We try to ensure our products are more eco conscious than typical alternatives.
We endeavour to use as little plastic as possible in our products and packaging, indeed many of our products include none whatsoever. We don't use plastic if we could reasonably use a natural or recycled material instead.
Unfortunately, the realities of international shipping means entirely eliminating plastic from the freight process is next to impossible. However, we and our manufacturers do make efforts to use as little as possible.
Regardless, you can rest assured that there is far less plastic associated with our items than conventional alternatives.
Our products use materials sourced from around the world. (Being a UK based business, there is unfortunately no local climate accommodating to plants like the loofah or sisal). This means that there is inevitably some carbon associated with our products, though we do make efforts to choose lower carbon freight options where possible.
