We try to make as much of our packaging as reusable as possible, and if you leave it out for us every week when we drop off your new box then we will recycle it for you. Below is what you are likely to find protecting the produce in your weekly order:
Re-useable Cardboard Boxes
These boxes are reused weekly so please leave yours out when we come to deliver your new order! They are sized depending on the amount of produce you order, so that everything is compacted together as much as possible to protect is during delivery.
Re-usable Poly Cooling Boxes
These boxes are re-usable just like the regular cardboard ones, except that we only use them in warm weather, to keep your produce extra fresh whilst it's in the delivery van. All of our vans have a chiller on board, but the boxes offer extra protection from the heat in case our customers aren't home when we deliver.
Biodegradable & Re-usable Bags
These bags are made by a specialist supplier in the UK. They are biodegradable and compostable, and keep produce amazingly fresh for a longer period of time than paper bags.
Recycled Paper Bags
These bags are made by one of our favourite suppliers, who makes plastic and paper packaging purely from recycled materials. We buy some of our wholefoods in bulk and diffuse them down into smaller bags for our customers.
Re-usable Egg Boxes
Our eggs come from Orchard Eggs in Forest Row, Sussex. We take all of our customer's empty egg boxes back to the farm, where they are treated before being sent out again with new eggs in them. This way, the farm saves money on new packaging (which is passed on to you!) and we save the environment a little bit more too.
Please remember to leave your empty boxes and packaging outside when we are dropping off your new order, so that we can recycle and re-use it.
