Ensuring you can recycle our packaging is one of our top priorities. We are working hard to find packaging that is sourced sustainably and can be easily recycled. 

Delivery boxes and paper packing material

Our cardboard packing boxes are 100% recyclable and are made from a minimum of 75% recycled fibres. All our cardboard originated from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified sustainable sources. This means it has been sourced in a sustainably way that adheres to strict regulations to guarantee it has been managed in a socially, environmentally and economically sound way.

Our natural paper shred and packing paper are also made from recycled material and are 100% recyclable.

Simply separate the cardboard and paper, flatten the cardboard and recycle both the paper and cardboard in your household recycling.

Woolcool fleece lining

Our Woolcool thermal insulation used in our packaging ensures your food remains chilled during transit. Woolcool is made from 100% sheep’s wool which is washed in a natural process and sealed in a recyclable polyethylene wrap. Wool is one of the most sustainable natural materials and is totally compostable and biodegradable, releasing valuable nitrates back into the soil.

Woolcool can be re-used for a variety of different purposes. Visit the Woolcool website or follow #letsboxclever on social media for Woolcool recycling inspiration.

Ice Packs 

Our ice packs can be reused again and again – just place them in your freezer to refreeze.

If you would prefer to recycle them, simply pierce or snip and empty the water away. We like to water the plants, as our icepacks contain nothing but 100% water.

 You can recycle the empty plastic at your local supermarket’s plastic bag recycling points or add to your kerbside recycling if accepted.

Vacuum Packs

Produce from our butchery is vacuum sealed in eco pouches. Manufactured from a range of natural products, including corn starch, cassava and eucalyptus fibre; they are 100% compostable. They are also ocean-friendly too. Once you’ve removed your produce, you can pop our eco pouches into your food waste recycling or compost bins.

Plastic containers  

Plastic pots are sometimes used to portion quantities of certain ingredients. Our pots are 100% recyclable. You can rinse them out and put these in your household recycling if your local council accepts them. Alternatively, they can be recycled at your local recycling centre.

Produce Bags

Our kraft paper produce bags are made from 75% sustainable raw materials and are fully recyclable.

 

 Reducing food waste is part of our sustainability promise. We work hard to predict how much food is required in our farm shop, both in store and online. 

Our Waste & Surplus Food

We are working with Help for the Homeless, a charity that supports homelessness by offering food and support to those in our local area who may be facing a challenging time. Any waste or surplus food that would be disposed of is collected daily by this brilliant organisation and distributed to those in need.
