Plastic Free Deliveries
To us, it doesn't make any sense to deliver renewable and plastic free products wrapped in plastic.
We’re so proud of our recycled, recyclable and bio-based packaging that we use it for our own orders. It allows us to fully test products before we launch, and also keep a close eye on quality. Using our packaging in a real life warehouse environment helps constantly upgrade designs to help maximise efficiency.
We also dispatch orders in re-used and second hand cartons with largely recycled packaging materials from our supplier deliveries, and from a number of other businesses based in our Mill. Naturally much of the this packaging can be re-used, recycled or composted - please recycle it when possible (after all that's the raw material for your next order).
However despatch of pallets is the one area we still have to use plastic wrap. So far we have not found an eco alternative to pallet shrink wrap on the market, so we are moving away from using palletised deliveries where possible. This is used to avoid any water damage during transit, especially for our compostable packaging. We have run trials of using cellulose film on pallets but more work is needed to make this a viable large scale option.
