We wanted to reassure you that at present, albeit in a slightly altered state, Green&Blue are still here, still delivering, still responding to your emails and inquiries and shipping your orders.
Following the lockdown announcement on the 23rd March we closed the Green&Blue workshop to our team and the public and for the time being, we have taken advantage of the Government support in place and furloughed most of our team.
Green&Blue co-founder Gavin is still heading into the workshop each day and so he has become; concrete maker, packer, dispatcher, head of production, studio assistant, cleaner and tea boy! Fortunately with only one in the tea round that's not such an arduous task as it used to be!
Sales and marketing manager Faye is also still working, but from home, and will be keeping up with orders, web stuff, social, emails, booking parcels, and making her own tea!
With our business heavily reliant on the wholesale shops we sell to, many of whom are now facing their own incredible difficulties, we are trying to think of things we can do to keep the wheels turning, and to support our shops and customers during this time.
But we are as determined as ever to keep going, to keep making space for nature in homes and gardens. And with many of you now spending more time than ever at home, now might just be the time to treat yourself to something from the range, enjoy watching the birds feed or the bees nest. Shipping is free within the UK on our website, for the time being, and slightly reduced internationally. Delivery may take a little longer than usual as Gavin finds his way around but please be assured we're here and doing what we can to be here for many years to come.
