Getting back I to blogging more often I was recategorising some of our previous posts to make them easier to find and stumbled across that nearly this time last year we first switched to 100% biodegradable mailing bags.
We have since been trying to improve on how we deliver packaging in an eco friendly way while still being able to have it functional for things like care instructions.
Reusable Mailing Bags
We have recently made a switch to plastic mailers that are not only bio-degradeable but also now have a double seal feature on them.
This means if you rip along just above where the seal sticks to the envelope then you can still reseal the bag and use it again as new.
Bio-degradable mailing bags are environmentally friendly bags that are made extra strong. They are designed to be 100 % recyclable. Plus, the mailing bags are burst proof, puncture and tear proof, and weatherproof. This allows the contents to be protected in any weather especially for winter in the UK.
More packaging we have added.
It wouldn't be fair to talk about sustainability as if we where doing everything with zero waste. But we are conscious to make any packaging that is necessary eco friendly.
We launched the sale of BIBS pacifiers this summer with great success! Originally we where trying to keep packaging to a minimum but just putting the pacifiers in Tissue paper to avoid plastic.
But customers who aren't familiar with our brand where concerned about the authenticity of the dummies themselves.
We then took the decision to make bespoke packaging with the clear film bag around the sets of dummies being made of starch instead of plastic and so completely biodegradable. The cardboard header and aluminium staple are recyclable too :)
100% of our electricity is from renewable sources.
We run all our machines and steamer from a supplier that uses 100% renewable sources of power generation like wind and solar.
We hope to inspire others to make a switch not only to feel better about more secure energy prices but the growth in the renewable sector itself.
We would love to hear your thoughts
We are juggling a million things running a small family business but it's important to always get more feedback from our growing commity :)
