We’ve been working hard to implement more sustainable practices into our workplace and look for innovative ways to improve our product offering, so we can look after this wonderful planet we call home.

Along with a variety of recyclable options, we’re proud to offer clients plastic-free, home compostable packaging solutions. Yep, plastic free. Being plant based, this packaging can decompose in as little as 26 weeks, leaving nothing toxic behind. Just pure, nutrient soil.
