One of the most important things for us when setting up our online business was getting the packaging right. We were determined to eliminate plastic from our entire operation and to focus on using mainly recycled materials.
Are they the prettiest out there? Nope! But we don't mind.
Here's 5 reasons why:
They are made from a minimum of 90% recycled material. The remaining percentage is sourced from Certified Wood and offset by planting trees with One Tree Planted.
They are made using naturally occurring adhesive and never contain any animal products.
They are printed in vegan-friendly, water-based ink.
They are biodegradable, compostable, plastic-free and fully recyclable.
They are manufactured in a facility that is powered by renewable energy instead of fossil fuels.
We use acid-free tissue paper. Ours is made from 100% recycled material. We would recommend you to reuse it! It can be recycled or composted when you're done.
We use shredded wood in some of our packages, and where we do, we make sure it comes from FSC approved wood .
We usually include an information card inside our boxes. This could give info about promotions, competitions, new products or about our work with our chosen charity.
All of our information cards are printed by our awesome friends at veganprint.co.uk. The paper is endorsed by the WWF and Greenpeace, and no animal products are used in their adhesives or inks.
You'll usually find a couple of tiny YAY! labels on your order. We get these through our partners at Avery.
They are printed on 100% recycled paper, using naturally occurring adhesives and vegan-friendly ink.
Last, but not least, the humble tape! This was the easiest to find! Our paper tape is plastic-free and made from 100% recycled paper.
No animal products are used in the natural adhesives in the tape that we use.
