We’re going plastic-free

In 2022, we will remove over 1 million plastic pots from circulation. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and will only use plastic free packaging when shipping your orders and where possible, we will reuse any packaging we receive from our own deliveries.

We have been dedicated to finding an eco-friendly alternative to our recyclable pots that also maintains long term product integrity, searching for a solution that mirrors our company values and doesn’t compromise on product quality. We are delighted to introduce our plastic-free, biodegradable and compostable pots, made from natural, sustainable sugar cane that utilises the waste from the sugar cane industry, thus helping with more stable sugar cane pricing.

A word from our CEO

FAQs

What are your plastic-free pots made from?


Our plastic-free pots are made from natural, sustainable sugar cane, ensuring it is only ever the waste from the sugar cane industry. Our lids are aluminium meaning they are fully recyclable.

Will you pack my order with eco-friendly alternatives?


Yes, we will only ever purchase eco-friendly packaging materials to pack your orders however, on the rare occasion we receive plastic packaging from supplies, we will reuse this for our orders and hope our customers do the same.

Can your sugar cane pots be recycled?


Absolutely! Our new sugar cane pots are recyclable and compostable.

Are the new sugar cane pots more eco-friendly than glass?


Yes! We have done a lot of research on different eco-friendly packaging including glass and have found that glass requires a substantial amount of energy during the manufacturing process and even more to transport. We also considered the fact a lot of glass doesn’t end up being recycled and when it does, it requires more energy to do so, our new sugar cane pots are recyclable, biodegradable and compostable.

Why don’t you use other eco-friendly packaging options like pouches or sachets?


We have always wanted a solution that ensures product integrity over time, is sustainable and eco-friendly, we believe that natural sugar cane packaging is therefore the best solution.

Will you continue to use your plastic pots?


A very small amount of our range will remain in our recyclable plastic pots for the time being, we are doing everything we can to make the switch to a completely plastic free range.

Are you a B corp company?


We are currently not a B corp company, however we are in the process of making this happen. However, as a company that is owned by a charitable foundation, we are driven by our principles and not the search for profits, fostering a way of working that is inclusive and sustainable.

Does your charity work also support the environment?


Our charitable owners, The Aim Foundation, have supported health and wellbeing charities for over 30 years and will continue to do so. However, more recently, they have begun to work alongside environmental charities and hope to grow this area moving forward.
