Most of our products are wrapped in a 100% recycled and recyclable paper for protection. This is made from unprinted white newspaper offcuts.
The LayerTree label, bulb info label and our clear circle labels are made from recyclable materials. The clear circle labels used to seal our brown paper screw bags can also be composted.
Instead of bubble wrap we use a brown kraft paper that has been cut into diamond shapes. It protects our bulbs just as well as bubble wrap (we did lots of testing!) and can be recycled or composted.
We don't understand how energy efficient bulbs can be sold in anything other than planet friendly packaging but this has been the hardest product to source without plastic. All our bulb boxes are now made from cardboard and therefore suitable for recycling.
Larger items are surrounded by biodegradable, GM-free starch based packers. Do not confuse these for the non-recyclable polystyrene version. Ours can be recycled, composted or dissolved in water.
Some of our smallest products fit into a single recycled and recyclable jiffy bag meaning that we can classify them as a large letter. This makes it easier for you to receive them and more space in the postman's van for parcel deliveries. These jiffy bags have a paper padded cushioning instead of being lined with plastic bubbles.
Our product booklets contain your invoice and instruction leaflet. They are printed using vegetable based inks on to 100% recycled card.
Our boxes are made using recycled fibres and in themselves are 100% recyclable. Both the standard and 'fragile' packaging tape we use is recyclable so it can be left on the box to make recycling easier.
Please reuse/recycle/compost whatever you can to help continue the cycle.
