Here at Lighting for Gardens, we’re always looking for ways to reduce our environmental impact. Over half of the plastics that are thrown away each year are from plastic packaging, which is why we want to reduce the amount we use.
We’re changing the way that we package orders and will be using eco-friendly packaging where possible from now on. Our new eco-packaging consists of bio-degradable air pockets and document enclosures, eco parcel tape and FSC Certified cardboard boxes and paper bubble. All our new packaging can be reused or simply recycled.
Our cardboard boxes and paper bubble wrap are both FSC Certified, which means that these bits of packaging come from sustainable and responsibly managed forests. As well as this, our bio-degradable air pockets are made from potato peel!
We can’t guarantee that all our parcels will be 100% plastic free however this is something that we’re working towards with our suppliers.
If you have any suggestions on further improvements then feel free to let us know.
