Look out for the leaf icon to find sustainable exhibitors

The focus on sustainability continues for Autumn Fair 21 (following the successful launch of the Sustainability Trail at Spring Fair 2020), with the launch of The Sustainability Library and other initiatives.

The Sustainability Library allows visitors to connect with sustainable brands exhibiting at Autumn Fair at www.autumnfair.com/the-sustainability-library-at-autumn-fair-home, making it simple to discover the brands and suppliers that are striving to do their part towards a more sustainable and ethical future.

Visit the Exhibitor List on www.autumnfair.com or via the soon-to-launch Autumn Fair app, filter by the Sustainability Library and discover exhibitor stories, pledges and initiatives from brands who are doing their part.

Greetings and stationery brands already signed up to the Sustainability Library include Penguin Ink Stand (Luxury animal Letterpress cards designed by Lizzie Parker), and The Art File Stand (greetings cards, stationery, gift packaging, and Christmas collection).

Jessica Dawnay, Spring & Autumn Fair event director said, “We know it is important to both retailers and suppliers to place sustainability at the forefront of how we do business. We are striving to bring on board exciting and innovative sustainable businesses to the Spring and Autumn Fair line-ups and connect them with interested retailers in an easy-to-use format. The Sustainability Library is a fantastic research tool for buyers targeting sustainable brands.”

Each exhibitor that is part of The Sustainability Library will be marked with a Leaf icon, helping visitors to find sustainable brands and suppliers quickly and easily. This will also be translated onsite with the sustainable exhibitors having this icon displayed on their stands.

The icons below help to identify specific sustainable initiatives, from biodegradable materials to recyclable packaging, that a brand or supplier may have or are working towards.


L-R: Sustainability Icon. Environment Icon: Act in the interests of protecting the natural world. Ethical Icon: Demonstrate respect for its employees and uphold a system of moral principles. Material Icon: Use sustainable and biodegradable materials as much as possible. Packaging Icon: Use reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging which results in improved sustainability.

These icons will be mirrored onsite at Autumn Fair with The Sustainability Trail and within the Show Guide.
