As you may already know, all of our products are packaged and shipped in completely recyclable packaging. We want to keep as much plastic out of our oceans and landfill as possible, so everything we use is circular. But what can you do once your gift has arrived? Read below to find out!

External Packaging and Postage Label - 

External Packaging
Materials: Recycled Paper, Paper, Adhesive

How To: The external envelope is made from recycled paper, so this can be composted or placed with your household paper recycling. The postage label is also paper, so this may remain on the envelope when being recycled.

 

Cotton Tie -

Materials: 100% Cotton

How To: Cotton is home compostable at the end of it's life cycle. However, we recommend re-purposing the cotton tie. You could plait the wool to make a book mark, use it to hang something at home, or even use it to tie another gift. See Hannah's creation in the photo for some inspiration!

Materials: Paper, Cardboard

How To: The tissue paper in our gift boxes is completely recyclable and home compostable. Dispose of it in a home composter, or with the household paper recycling. The cardboard box and gift tag can be disposed of in the same way, however,if you wish to re-purpose the box, we recommend using it to store stationary, organise herbs and spices, or even keep garden seeds together! 

 

Sweet Bag -

Materials: Cellulose, Paper, Adhesive

How To: Cellulose is one of the most popular eco-friendly plastic alternatives, bearing many similar features. However, unlike plastic, cellulose is home compostable as it is made from natural plant sugars. The stickers are paper-based, meaning these can also be composted. 

 

Soap Wrap -

Materials: Recycled Paper, Paper, Adhesive 

How To: The external soap wrap is made from recycled paper, as is the tape used to seal the ends. These can be placed with your domestic paper recycling, or composted at home. The sticker is also paper-based, so this can remain with the soap wrap. 

 

Candle Jar and Lid -

Materials: Glass, Paper, Aluminum, Adhesive

How To: To remove any excess wax once you are finished burning your candle, pour in hot water and wait for the wax to melt. Once melted, this can then be poured into an appropriate outdoor space such as a garden, as the wax is soy-based. We do not recommend disposing of excess wax through household sinks and drainage systems as blockages may occur.

 

Tealight -

Materials: Aluminum, Rice Paper, Paper

How To: Pour hot water in the aluminium cup to melt away any excess wax. Once clean, the cup can be disposed of in your domestic metal waste for tins, cans, and aluminium packaging. The packet is made from rice paper and may be composted along with the paper sticker still attached. 

 

Shredded Cardboard and Paper - 

paper packaging
Materials: Cardboard, Paper

How To: We use recycled packaging materials to protect some of our products in transit. This can either be paper, or shredded cardboard. Both can be composted at home, or recycled in your household paper/cardboard recycling, if you do not wish to re-use it in future. Why not re-purpose some into pet bedding? 

 

Seed Ball Tube and Wood Wool -

seed ball packaging
Materials: Cardboard, Shredded Wood, Paper, Adhesive

How To: The cardboard tube used to enclose the seed balls can be reused as you see fit. We've seen them used for storing small pieces of jewelry, crayons and other stationary, and even as a napkin holder! The paper sticker can be placed in your paper recycling, and the wood wool is fully home compostable.
