Our primary aim is to 're-use', so whenever possible products will be shipped using boxes and packaging materials that we have received from our suppliers. We feel that this is better for the environment than producing 'new' packaging materials (even if done in an eco friendly way). Rest assured that any plastic tape on the outside of the box was already there when we received it - we only use craft paper tape on our boxes. We also use biodegradable cello tape to cover the shipping label.
If your package looks a little 'used' on the outside, that's because it likely has been (and that's a good thing)! Rest assured that your package will be packed with care and to ensure that your contents arrive in perfect condition. All materials inside the box will be recycleable, or compostable. Note that if there are any packing peanuts inside your box (they may look like plastic) they are made from plant fibres and dissolve when soaked in water.
If on the rare occasion we use a bubble mailer to send you your products please be assured that we are resusing bubble mailers we have received in the past. We only use this packaging when it makes sense to do and strive to send out our orders in recycled cardboard boxes.
If you have any special packing requests please feel to contact us and we will do our best to accommodate!
Where possible please re-use any packaging you receive from us - mother earth will thank you!
