Orders are shipped in sturdy carton boxes which are securely taped. To protect the contents we use a wide variety of materials ranging from egg cartons, newspapers (from quality press tot yellow press), pieces of cardboard boxes but als questionable plastic blobs and air filled cushions.
We do so because we want to operate in a sustainable way. Whenever we receive boxes with less sustainable stowage material we could discard this, but we believe that from en environmental point of view reusage is the best solution.
Items that need to be kept as cool as possible are wrapped in plastic insulation with an aluminium coating. The box is filed with straw which accomodated for shocks but which is also unbeatable is an insulation layer.
The isolation foil is perhaps not desirable from an environmental view but having to discard precious food is even worse. However, we are constantly looking for better alternatives.
