GIY’s “Grow It Forward” campaign featured the fulfilment by Speedpak Contract Services of 50,000 seed packs.
GIY, like Speedpak Group, is a social enterprise. Its mission is to support people around the world to live happier, healthier and more sustainable lives by growing some of their own food.
The campaign was aimed at encouraging people to enjoy the benefits of growing vegetables at home and to then share their experience with ten other people.
Each growing pack included 5 different packets of seed, 10 tags and one brochure. Fulfilment of the Grow It Forward packs involved breaking bulk quantities of seed packs, tags, envelopes and brochures into smaller batches. Components were manually sorted, collated, bundled and banded.
Envelopes were addressed, packed by hand, sealed and dispatched to An Post for delivery to libraries, businesses and individual subscribers all over Ireland.
Speedpak Group was very happy to have this opportunity to work with another social enterprise.
