About Buddy Burst
Thanks for stopping by! Here’s a little about the company:
Buddy Burst sprouted up in 2016 when founder and former ad man Jamie Gray decided to combine his marketing know-how with his deep-rooted passion for sustainability. Noticing a severe lack of eco-friendly products in the promotions market, Jamie set out to offer companies a sustainable way to increase their awareness. The company offers a wide range of seed-based products that companies can customise to best suit their brand messaging and goals. Just last year alone, Buddy Burst produced over 300,000 seed-based products, helping to dramatically reduce CO2 emissions.
The company’s hero product? The Seedstick. Contained in a package similar to a matchbook, each Seedstick can be torn off and directly planted into soil. With adequate care, it can grow into an herb, fruit, flower, or even a tree, depending from which seed offering it’s made. Even HRH Prince of Wales is a fan, as they were presented to him at Clarence House as part of a Prince’s Trust campaign.
Since planting roots in London, Buddy Burst has grown continually. The customisable seed-based products have quickly won clients like Arsenal FC, Ella’s Kitchen, Daimler, Bill’s Restaurant, JC Decaux, Hilton and many more.
In late 2016, Jamie was featured in IoD’s Director magazine with an international business feature. They’ve also been acquiring clients from areas across the world including Germany, Romania, Iceland and the United States since early 2017. The Department for International Trade (DIT) even funded their trip to an industry trade show in Las Vegas to help us grow into the American and Canadian markets.
The company is thrilled to have been selected for European Regional Development funding via Innovating for Growth by the British Library, as well as the Best New Business in Hammersmith & Fulham. Jamie was also nominated for the 2017 IoD Director of the Year Awards, and had the opportunity to visit Number 10 as a result.
So what’s the latest on their radar? Well, in addition to offering favourites like seeded paper, grow kits, and seeded pencils, Buddy Burst has recently branched out into other products like biodegradable bags, bamboo t-shirts, cacti keyrings-the list goes on! This eco-friendly company is looking towards the future with bright eyes, and hopes to continue to help companies in protecting the precious planet!
So please get in touch. We hope this will be the start of a long, fruitful relationship.
