We pride ourselves in trying to be a sustainable as possible. This is not always easy but where we can choose a more sustainable option we will. We are not perfect but we are trying hard to protect this planet we call home. If you have any requests or suggestions regarding our packaging please do let us know.
Goodbye plastic packaging
We've got rid of that silly little bit of plastic around our pocket packs of mints and gum. It was there to keep our packs tamper-proof so we knew that nobody had tinkered with them before you bought them. We've been working really hard to redesign the pack so that it is still tamper-proof whist having no plastic film. No plastic, no waste, no bother.
SUSTAINABLE FSC CARDBOARD
Instead of using plastic or unrecyclable wax paper like other mint and gum brands, we package our products in FSC approved cardboard boxes. The FSC (forest stewardship council) help take care of the forests where we get our card from. They replant the trees we use and create safe homes for wildlife. This does cost us a bit more, but we think it's worth it and we hope you do too.
FULLY RECYCLABLE BOXES
As well as making sure everything is sourced well, we have made sure all our packaging can be easily recycled at home. From the little pocket packs to the mailer boxes that come through your letterbox, every one of them can be put in your local recycling bin. Reduce, reuse, recycle.
In the next few months we are looking at some major changes to our 50g pouch packs as the packaging cannot currently be recycled. This is something we can’t live with so we are looking to at a few options for our bigger packs. More news on this to come.
We will also continue to work on phasing out any other plastic or unsustainable packaging from our supply chain including the plastic used to protect our products in transit.
