We choose our packaging solutions with sustainability in mind. It’s our aim to work with as little impact on the environment as possible. We like to make our own packing boxes to ensure the goods we ship arrive in the best possible condition.
Manufacturing with paper and cardboard means most of our wastage can be recycled. Where we can, we choose packaging materials that can be recycled or reused.
Here are some of the steps we have taken in our commitment to environmentally-friendly practices:
→ We have replaced bubble wrap with a paper alternative.
→ If we receive items packed in bubble wrap from our suppliers or customers, we reuse it.
It’s important to reuse plastic material where we can to keep it out of landfills. We encourage you to do the same.
→ We reuse boxes we have received from our suppliers, provided they are in good shape. This gives the box another life.
We acknowledge that some of our products are packaged by us in plastic. For some products, plastic provides the best protection for storing and shipping, especially where the product needs to remain free from moisture or air. Where possible, we use zip lock bags as they can be reused.
Choosing to operate sustainably is a work in progress. Currently, we are looking to:
→ Change our courier satchels to a more environmentally-friendly solution
→ Replacing the plastic tape we use. We use a lot of tape and do opt for craft paper tape where we can.
