Buying From Us Online? How Environmental is the Packaging We Use?
How Environmental is the Packaging We Use?So, your dreams have come true and you’ve treated yourself to some Bomb goodies! A few days later your fairy godmother (in the disguise of a postman) turns up with your pink package and poof! All you can see is a cloud of multi-coloured “wotsits”! After admiring your lovely smelling goodies, you’ll see the box and all of these “wotsits” and think to yourself… “How environmentally friendly is this?” Well! You’ll be delighted to know we have chosen our packaging because of its environmental credentials. Booyah! Our boxes are made with 100% post-consumer recycled cardboard and this means you can also recycle them through your local council kerbside recycling scheme. The ink used to print the boxes is water based so you can rest assured no mean, nasty solvents are being used that evaporate into the air. But what about those colourful sausages inside the box? Well! These are made of Corn Starch… you know, the same thingy ma jig you make custard with! They are entirely water soluble and the chips quickly biodegrade* unlike polystyrene or similar alternatives. And of course, the starch used is GM free. They weigh almost nothing which means we keep our parcels as light as possible and they are amazing at protecting your products inside the box from any damage. This means our products get to you in tip top shape! And we don’t waste resources sending out replacements for damaged products. Our products are wrapped which also protects them – see our previous blog post on the environmental benefits of wrapping our products here. So rest assured, when you order from our website, we’ve carefully chosen our packaging to reduce our environmental impact as much as possible. *conforms to EN13432 Standard for Biodegradability
