Pale Pink Coloured Acid Free Tissue Paper
We first wrap each order in acid free tissue paper to protect the clothing. It is recyclable and also FSC approved
Pure Kraft Paper
We then use the Kraft paper to ensure that the parcel is sturdy and doesn't get crumpled in transit. It gives an extra layer of protection to your items. It is easily recyclable and compostable. Most, if not all, of Local Authorities will take paper with curbside paper recycling collections, but they must not be soiled with food, grease or other contaminants.
LDPE - Polybags
Finally we use polybags to send our orders out in as we need to protect your order from the elements and arrive to you in tip top condition. Our polybags are made from Recyclable packaging manufactured from Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE). This product can be recycled and converted into a new product, thus helping to save material, reduce waste and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
Polythene takes much less energy to produce than alternative forms of packaging such as paper or glass, whilst it helps to drastically reduce food waste, which produces three times more CO2 than packaging waste, along with methane, which is 23 times as damaging in accelerating climate change as the equivalent amount of CO2.
By re-using and then recycling our polythene packaging - rather than just disposing of it after a single use - we can all help to reduce waste and save on raw materials, thereby cutting greenhouse gas emissions and contributing to a greener, cleaner planet.
Low density polyethylene, or LDPE, is a strong, translucent, flexible and moisture-resistant plastic that is easy to process and low in cost.
- Uses after recycling: Plastic lumber, panelling, compost bins
For those households unable to recycle plastic bags and film in their home recycling, most major supermarkets across the UK - including Tesco, Sainsbury's, Asda, Morrisons, The Co-op and Waitrose - provide recycling points at their larger stores, where you can recycle plastic bags and some other plastic films. So always check your local store and find out what is available in your local area before you dispose of any recyclable products.
