When it comes to how we package your items for delivery, at The Eco Shop we're committed to reducing our environmental impact. Our aim is to use as minimal packaging as possible, whilst ensuring that your items are protected and arrive safe and in perfect condition.

You can rest assured that there will be no plastic packaging (no bubble wrap, polystyrene or foam peanuts!) in your order and all deliveries will be sent out in a recyclable cardboard box, with recyclable paper or card packing filler, and sealed with recyclable paper tape.

We hate to see things go to waste and it is vitally important to us that the way we package our products aligns with the ethos of our store - reuse, reduce, recycle.


What packaging do we use?

All of our boxes are made of from 100% recycled materials and are 100% biodegradable. We also try and re-use cardboard boxes from suppliers and other sources where we can - while it doesn’t always look pretty we don’t want any boxes that we receive and can be used again, to be put straight into the recycling bin!


What packing materials and tape do we use?

We will only ever use the necessary amount of packaging to protect your products. All of the items we send are safely wrapped and/or padded using recycled paper or paper shreddies.

When we need to use it, all of our packages are securely sealed with brown recycled paper tape, which is 100% biodegradable and compostable.


We also continually liaise with all of the companies we work to ensure that they share our approach to packaging. We check to ensure that any products they supply to us is plastic-free and is sent to us using minimal and preferably recycled and recyclable packaging. After all, what good is going plastic-free if the items we stock are packaged in plastic!
