Packaging is always important. It is not just about the product as much as we love our products. Our packaging began as recyclable carboard , paper envelopes, paper tape and organic cotton twine. As we keep striving for the best our packaging will soon adapt to the nicest sustainable bags, along with recyleable or we always encourage to reuse but new compact boxes our packaging is important and no plastic has ever been a factor of use from the start.
Whilst we try to order from companies or work with supliers who also package well we are aware that this is still a goal and if we do recieve anything of the such we always makesure we can reuse or give another use before disposing straight away.
