Biodegradable Packaging

Biodegradable Packaging

Due to the fragile nature of most of our parcels – we extensively use bubble wrap to ensure that our parcels arrive in the best condition and come in the smallest volumetric size possible.

Our optional biodegradable packaging costs extra £1.75 and ensures that we send your parcel out via environmentally friendly bubble wrap.

This is certified under the European Standards Organisation as “degradation resulting from oxidative and cell-mediated phenomena, either simultaneously or successively”. It is made from a biodegradable plastic tested to degrade in the open environment. The material degrades into small-chain organic chemicals such as ketones, alcohols, carboxylic acids and low molecular mass hydrocarbon waxes. The remaining chemicals are no longer plastic and are biodegradable by bacteria which is ubiquitous in the terrestrial and marine environments.
