All about the green gables

I’m Gabrielle and I design and create gorgeous and green gifts and stationery that help you get organised, connect with others in a real and tangible way, and spread a little joy in the world.

What the green gables is all about

the green gables is all about sharing happiness, and helping you to find joy in everyday life. I create stationery and gifts to bring more organisation, meaning, and happiness to your life, and the lives of your friends and family.
I have a few obsessions. One of them is creating happy post days – both for you, and for you to give to your loved ones. I created Happy Paper Club to bring a monthly dose of happiness and delight into your life through an exclusive subscription box. Many of the items in my shop are perfect to send to a friend or family member to bring a smile, or show that you’re thinking of them.
Another obsession for me is happiness. I’m fascinated by positive psychology, and the things that really make us happy. I’m often experimenting with new ways to add a little happiness to my life, and building on the habits that bring me joy.

Why eco-friendly?

The planet we all live on is a beautiful, wondrous place and it’s important to me that we do our best to take care of it and keep it safe for future generations.
• By printing our paper products on 100% recycled paper stock we’re reducing the need to cut down trees to make fresh paper and proving there is a demand for high quality recycled paper.
• By using compostable packaging (such as the clear bags your note pads and cards are packaged in), recyclable or reusable postal packaging and recycling, where possible, everything we can’t use or reuse, we’re reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.
the green gables’ website is powered by 1&1 green hosting which uses 100% renewable energy which reduces our carbon footprint and impact on the environment. There’s always more to be done but it’s a start.

Why British-made?

I strive to make the green gables‘ products in Britain, wherever possible, to keep down the number of miles products travel and to support other British businesses. This helps us reduce our carbon footprint and support the British economy.

Giving back

Being a positive force in the world and contributing to society is important to me and I want my business to give back where possible. the green gables supports six charities by donating a percentage of profits.
So, you can rest assured that while you’re enjoying your carefully chosen items there are others benefiting from your purchase too. The charities the green gables donates to are Woodland Trust, The Brain Tumour Charity, NSPCC, age UK, WaterAid and Fresh Start Foundation.
I feel a connection with each of my chosen charities, in different ways, and if you’d like to find out more about their work do please click on the names to link through to their websites.

My blog is a great resource for happiness ponderings, and Happy Paper Club is a wonderful way to bring happiness, stationery, and creativity into your life each month.

I hope this helps to give you a feel for what the green gables is all about.
