About Buddy Burst
Thanks for stopping by! Here’s a little about us:
Buddy Burst sprouted up in 2016 when our founder and former ad man Jamie Gray decided to combine his marketing knowhow 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. We offer a wide range of seed-based products that companies can customise to best suit their brand messaging and goals. Just last year alone, we produced over 300,000 seed-based products, helping to dramatically reduce CO2 emissions.
Our 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 our roots in London, we have 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. We’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 our trip to an industry trade show in Las Vegas to help us grow into the American and Canadian markets.
We’re 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 our 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, keyring cacti- the list goes on! We’re looking towards the future with bright eyes, and only hope to continue to help companies in protecting our precious planet!
So please get in touch. We hope this will be the start of a long, fruitful relationship.
