Our Sustainable Packaging Policy.

In the times we live in there is an undeniable volume of evidence explaining Global Warming,
Climate-Change effects and other associated environmental issues.

We have researched the best environmentally friendly packaging solutions available,
so we can get your products to you safely -but not at the expense of the planet and future generations.

How do we improve?

As a bathroom retailer, we need to ensure that often fragile (glass and ceramic) bathroom products
are delivered safe and well -protected to our customers.
However, at the same time, we want to use green packing materials that are not harmful to the environment.

Striking this balance has been challenging, but we are now proud to announce we are now using bio-degradable bubble wrap
and essential packaging product for us used extensively to protect and encapsulate your new branded-bathroom products before dispatch.
Furthermore, the boxes and pallet protectors we use are all made from 100% recycled material.
The timbers for the pallet are from a sustainable and renewable source.
They are also fully recyclable and will decompose.

Some DIY Ideas

If you fancy a bit of DIY and arts and crafts, there are plenty of projects to take on that use old wooden pallets.
A browse through Pinterest should spark your imagination: here

We would love to see all of our packagings to be reused, recycled or composted at the end of its journey,
and aim to have 100% of our packaging recyclable or compostable.
If you have any pallet projects you would like to share with us we would love to see your photos!
