Behind the scenes I work hard to try and ensure that all my parcels head out packaged in either recycled, recyclable or biodegradable packaging.
It’s not that easy as a small business as everything that is better for the planet seems to cost three times as much but I think I’m almost there and I feel so much better for making the changes.
We use cardboard boxes, green biodegradable bubble wrap, biodegradable packing peanuts, recyclable brown tape, plant based 0% plastic sellotape, tissue and Kraft paper.
The shrink wrap that we use on a few of our products is also recyclable at your local recycling centre.
I need to change to recyclable fragile tape or labels and then I think I’ll have just about cracked it.
So if you receive anything from me from now on you now know what is what. I also pop a little leaflet in that tells you what to do with all your packaging too.
