Growing, packing and delivering your food puts us in a unique position to use as little packaging as possible. From sending lots of produce loose, to reusing our iconic veg boxes up to 10 times, we’re constantly working to minimise waste. Our fruit and veg packaging is now paper or home compostable, where packaging is needed at all.
Paper we are all familiar with, but home compostable packaging may be new to you. These super sustainable materials may look like conventional plastic – but once disposed of, they properly biodegrade (breaking down not into microplastics, but into carbon dioxide, water vapour and organic matter, just like a plant decomposing) within one year. They break down like this even in low temperatures, such as your home compost heap.
