Our Packaging Promise

Don’t expect any fancy parcels as we’re trying to keep it simple and avoid all those single use plastic and unnecessary packaging.

  • We always use reused or recycled paper to package your products safely inside the box – no bubble wrap or foam peanuts.
  • We use compostable tape made from brown 100% recycled paper, with a latex-based adhesive to seal your parcels – a totally biodegradable tape that can be recycled or composted with your box.
  • Where possible we send out packages in reused cardboard boxes, often ones that have originally come from our suppliers, or brown paper mailers for small products, with corrugated cardboard inserts for protection. On occasions where we do need to use new boxes these will always be made from recycled cardboard.
  • We ask that our customers please reuse, recycle, or compost any packaging we send your way.
