Packaging Materials

Where possible we are switching to as many environmentally friendly packaging material as possible.  We have already impemented the ones below.   

Paper Bubble Wrap

  • Environmentally friendly alternative to bubble wrap

  • This paper is 100% recycled, and is also 100% recyclable with biodegradable materials

  • Made with deep indentations during the manufacturing process, meaning it is the strongest product of its type

  • Highly absorbent properties to protect against harmful, external factors     

 

Eco Mailing Bags

  • Eco-friendly alternative to standard polythene mailing bags

  • Produced from sugar cane, the greenest material on the market

  • Fully recyclable 50 micron material making it an improved environmental solution

  • Contains the same properties as standard oil derived polythene meaning no compromise on the strength or quality

  • Carbon neutral – the carbon dioxide taken from the atmosphere in the growing process, offsets the carbon dioxide emitted through production and transport

Cardboard Boxes

  • We use an assortment of coloured tissue paper currently
  • Tissue paper and Newspaper offcuts are 100% recyclable and biodegradable

Void Fill Chips

  • Manufactured from starch material, EcoFlo is a fully compostable void fill material and is 100% biodegradable. The product is fully soluble when saturated with water which takes away this issue of litter. It also conforms to EN13432.
  • The manufacturing process for our void fill material is a single-stage process (compared with the manufacturing process for the polystyrene version, which is multi-stage, uses more energy so is less environmentally friendly).
  • Starch is also an annually renewable resource.

Air Cushions

  • 100% recyclable protective air cushions
  • Very light and reduce overall packed weight and carbon footprint during transit

All packaging material that we receive when we take deliveries of stock is reused and this may mean that you will receive some non recyclable packaging materials such as plastic bubble wrap and polystyrene chips and sheets.  We think it is best that these get at least one more life, rather than us sending them to landfill. 

The most important thing is to get your order to you in one piece as its not environmentally friendly to have breakages.
