As part of our move towards becoming more sustainable, you might have noticed recently that our packaging has had a little facelift.
Although convenient and often recyclable, In Europe, 70% of recyclable plastics still end up in either landfill or oceans. To try and reduce our impact, moving forward we’ll be updating the way we send parcels out, phasing out the recycled plastics in our current packaging into fully recyclable or biodegradable options.
These include a sturdy kraft paper mailer with soy-based ink sticker, home compostable bio bag and a 100% recyclable collect in-store bag with knitted paper rope handles. Apart from the biodegradable bag which can be easily composted at home, all other components of our packaging will now be 100% recyclable and accepted in both home and commercial recycling sites.
To create its Tsugaru Vidro range, Hokuyo Glass gives a new lease of life to the glass fishing floats it once produced.
