Plastic Free packaging
When it comes to packaging, we’re passionate about the planet. We believe in recycling and reducing waste wherever we can. That’s why we often reuse boxes and packing materials that have previously served to bring us stock. It’s all part of our commitment to a plastic-free future. So when you receive your order, you can be sure it’s wrapped and packed with love and care – completely plastic-free
Not only do we try to keep our products plastic free, but our labelling too. As you can see above, we use a variety of recycled craft paper packaging and labelling options, utilisting staples and twine so that we do not need to use sticky tape.
