It’s not just our products that are green. 95% of our packaging is either biodegradable or recyclable (and we’re working hard on that last 5%, it’s just the pesky plastic top from our ‘anti-roll system’ left to replace). As a company we’ve made a concerted effort to switch to sustainable packaging, it costs twice the price but at least we sleep well at night!
