We’re trying to be eco warriors  . . .  and fight the cause !

We use compostable delivery bags

Our delivery bags and address labels are ‘compostable’, but what does that mean?

Composting, in an appropriate facility or environment, is the biodegradation process under aerobic conditions. Compostable products break plastic polymers down into CO2 and other ingredients into biomass or soil within 6-12 weeks. The ideal environment should have an ambient temperature of between 50-70°C, with the correct humidity, pressure, and appropriate numbers and types of microbes.

A large scale industrial facilities have hot and pressurised environments to speed up this process.

What can you do?

If you have a sealed composte bin in your garden with food scrapes, plant matter and worms, that creates the above conditions, you can place your compostable bag in there for organic recycling. It is worth noting that some ‘home environmental’ conditions may not be able replicate the compostable conditions even for certified materials. If you can’t do this, please do not place our packaging in your recycling as these plastics can not be recycled in the usual way. Place in your normal ‘black bin’ waste. It will gradually and harmlessly degrade in this way.

Recyclable delivery boxes

Our delivery boxes and labels are made from recycled cardboard and paper.

What can you do?

If you can find a use for them, please re-use or recycle them in your normal recycling process.

The labels are not the same compostable labels that we use on the bags, so you can put them in your usual recycling bin.
