Our Packaging

We care passionately about the environment and continue to make our best effort to be eco-friendly.


Our packaging is unbranded and uncomplicated which cuts down on shipping and production processes and minimises our negative contribution to the environment.


Importantly, we don’t duplicate packaging. The kit comes to us in the bags we send it to you in. Many big brands ship to the customer in paper, having discarded the plastic packaging their stuff arrives from their manufacturers in. We think this could be a tad like having the wool pulled over your eco eyes, so we don’t do that.


Our bags are locally sourced by our various manufacturers and in the main are bio-degradable/use recycled components and/or are recyclable.


The grey outer post bags are lightweight and recyclable. Whilst these are not suitable to put into your regular household re-cycling collection, most major supermarkets have collection points for this type of packaging.


We have chosen not to switch to paper or cardboard packaging because we are advised that it requires more resources to manufacture and recycle. We are, however, constantly reviewing this.
