Our Commitment

At Rockett St George our mission is to source sustainable and eco-friendly products, additional packaging and materials wherever possible to minimise our impact on the environment.

This applies to both our housekeeping (general running of our business and offices) and in the process of sourcing, designing and producing our own products and the additional materials we use to dispatch parcels to our customers. As well as complying with all relevant regulatory requirements, we work continuously to improve and monitor and reduce our impact on the environment. We have incorporated environmental factors into our core business decision-making and continue to improve and increase employee awareness and training.

Our Collections

We are developing more of our own brand designs to give us better control over the use of more sustainable and eco-friendly materials, as well as improving the manufacturing and production methods that are available to us.

In 2020, approximately 10% of our online collection was made up of our own brand items which include Furniture, Lighting, Accessories, Wallpaper, Paint, and Rugs. Our aim was to double this figure by the end of 2021 with the view of achieving at least 50-60% own-brand items in the next 5 years.

As of 2023 our own brand items make up approximately 30% of our online collection, bringing us closer to our 5 year target.

Our Packaging

We aim to use zero non-recyclable or non-bio-degradable plastic in our packaging by end of 2021 and improve the packaging that our suppliers use to send products to our warehousing. This year we are proud to have sourced an eco-friendly alternative to bubble wrap to use as additional packaging for all outgoing parcels from our Sussex Warehouse. You can read more about the materials we use to package your orders below as well as the efforts we have made this year.

our packaging

What We've Done

We've replaced the use of bubble wrap and plastic with paper which is fully recyclable and biodegradable.


  • Paper Tape
  • Made with 100% brown recyclable paper
  • A rubber-based adhesive which is fully biodegradable and compostable
  • Paper sourced in the EU, manufactured in the UK
  • It is acid-free and suitable for picture framing use
  • Vegan-friendly

Protega Paper Void Fill

  • We have replaced bubble wrap with paper void packaging to fill the spaces within customer parcels. This helps avoid items moving around in the box and being damaged while in transit with the courier.
  • Our Protega Paper is 100% recyclable, biodegradable, compostable and  made from 100% recycled paper. Protega Paper is also FSC® certified.
  • This solution also helps to reduce packing time as well as saving on materials.

Stickers & Labels

  • We use paper stickers which are printed locally using eco-friendly toners.

Printing & Paper Use

  • We minimise the use of paper in the office whenever possible and purchase recycled and recyclable paper products only. We reuse and recycle all paper where possible.

Our Recycling & Waste Management

We provide recycling bins throughout the building in both working and social areas and actively encourage our employees to recycle, reuse and avoid unnecessary use of water and electricity whenever possible.

Broken products that are not suitable for re-sale in our outlet shop are placed in a skip which is collected by Biffa. The contents of the skip is then taken to a transfer station which sorts the commodities for onward recycling. The general waste is shredded & baled for Refused Derived Recycling which produces energy from waste. You can read more information on this process via the Biffa website.

We use milk & more to deliver our dairy and dairy-free milk. It’s a small change but it has had a big impact on the amount of packaging we consume. The glass milk bottles are collected each week and re-filled for future local deliveries.

Our Energy Usage

Until autumn 2022 in our Sussex headquarters, we have used renewable electricity company Ecotricity. On the advice of Ecotricity themselves we have moved to British Gas until the price of energy settles down. We will move back to a a renewable energy provider as soon as this happens.

“Switching to green energy is the biggest single thing – and the easiest thing – that any business or person can do to cut their emissions that cause air pollution and climate change.” - Dale Vince, Ecotricity founder.

What We've Done

Our Suppliers

We work with a preferred list of like-minded suppliers and are continually updating our supplier list to find new companies who share our vision of using more sustainable eco-friendly materials and production methods to will help us to achieve our goal. As part of our Supplier compliance, we send our suppliers and manufacturers a questionnaire to ensure transparency on products supplied. This helps us to not only categorise our products more efficiently but also to provide our customers with clear information.

Transportation of Goods

In gaining a better understanding of the impact that production and transportation processes have on the environment, we are committed to monitoring and working continuously to find ways of reducing our carbon footprint and improve our environmental performance. The majority of our own brand items are currently manufactured in India and China using both machine and handmade techniques in fully audited and approved factories.

For our international manufacturers, we utilise cargo shipping to transport our goods to the UK. This is currently the eco-friendliest option for international transportation (over road or train). There is, however, still work to do in order to improve the efficiency of this method which we monitor continuously.

Our Delivery Companies

All of the couriers we use to deliver customer parcels are taking steps to improve their carbon footprint. You can find out more by visiting their websites:

Our main courier, DPD have implemented the following:

  • Increased by 22% the number of all-electric vehicles in their fleet – with 3,500 EVs now in operation
  • Switched their HGVs to HVO, a fuel that is up to 90% less polluting than diesel

DPD is also on track to have reduced their emissions by over 70,000 tonnes of CO2e, year on year (a 36% reduction since 2020 on overall emissions). Find out more via the DPD website

We use a private third-party courier to deliver our Large & Fragile Items whose vehicles all qualify to enter low emission zones.
