St Austell Printing Company has teamed up with one of Cornwall’s most beloved charities to unveil the third edition of its popular “Cornish Pairs” card game.

The family-run company has worked with the Cornwall Wildlife Trust, dedicating the latest edition of its promotional card game to the wildlife who call Cornwall their home. A total of 15 animals are featured in each pack, along with promotional information about the charity’s work.

Thousands of packs, including the recyclable packaging have been designed, printed and manufactured at SAPC’s sustainable Cornish factory. These games will be distributed by SAPC at events throughout the year and a number have also been donated to Cornwall Wildlife Trust to sell through its website.

Last year SAPC was named the UK’s most environmentally-friendly printing company and this card game is the latest chapter in its ongoing support for Cornwall Wildlife Trust. In 2019 SAPC became a business partner and preferred printing supplier for the charity, and sales from SAPC’s annual calendar also raised funds towards its conservation work.

The previous two editions of the card game featured famous Cornish landmarks and locations including The Eden Project, St Michael’s Mount and Fistral Beach. Photos on social media showed the game being played as far away as Australia and Dubai.

Beth Mayman, SAPC’s operations manager, said: “We feel privileged to call Cornwall our home and to be surrounded by exceptional landscapes and wildlife. That’s why we’ve been interested in the objectives of Cornwall Wildlife Trust for a number of years and respect the important work it does helping to protect Cornwall’s wildlife and wild places.”

Isabella Hawkes from Cornwall Wildlife Trust added: “Creating the Cornish Wildlife Pairs game with St Austell Print was a brilliant opportunity to share wild and wonderful facts about Cornwall’s wildlife, as well as celebrate our talented local photographers.

“It’s important to work with businesses who share our eco-credentials and ensure that sustainability and environmental protection are at the core of what we do.”
