New Sustainable Packaging!
Another project we undertook in Lockdown number 3 was to review and update our packaging to make sure it was as sustainable as possible.
I was already using recycled paper and recycled packaging but little did I realise how important to the process of recycling that it was not good to use sticky labels. We also found that some of the paper packaging damaged very easily so we wanted to find an alternative solution.
Firstly we concentrated on the sourcing of calico bags. After much research we found a wonderful company with a perfect fit on ethical commitments putting people and the environment first. You can check them out at www.bidbi.co.uk. They are a well established business who positively produce and have been a pleasure to do business with.
Then we redesigned our labelling we picked up on the graphic design my book. Using recycled paper, jute ties and no lamination our design is 100% recyclable that can also be collectable like a set of playing cards.
We hope you find the information on the labels interesting and useful. We look forward to gradually adding to the collection of products.
