If you’re wondering what packaging items are recyclable, non recyclable or biodegradable, and want to ensure everything that makes it into your bin finds a second life, follow the below recycling instructions for all of our packaging used.
Our boxes, both product & postal, are made from cardboard. Our tags, flavour menus & cards are all made from recycled cardboard.
Our stickers & tissue paper are both made from recycled materials and printed with plant based inks.
The cushion pads used inside some of our boxes to protect the macarons & treats during shipping are made from glassine paper (produced from wood pulp), making these biodegradable.
The clear bags used for our Maca-Wrongs & Brownie Bakes are made from NatureFlex ™ which is a compostable film made from wood pulp. It is home compostable, GM free and sourced from managed locations. This film has excellent properties and is made from renewable, sustainable sources.
The shredded paper filler used in our postal boxes is the most environmentally friendly paper, as it is made from 100% UK recycled paper.
Reusable & Recyclable Packaging
The clam shell Macaron Tray inserts to hold the macarons in place are made from plastic. These can be reused for a multitude of use (such as making seed trays for the gardeners among you). To re use your trays, imply wash them with warm soapy water. They can also be recycled along with your regular household recycling.
In the warm weather we also include Eco-Chill Packs which are made with Bio-Marine plastics and are reusable & Recyclable.
To reuse, just pop the chill pack in your freezer for 24 hours prior to use - Perfect to use for picnics. To Recycle, the contents can be emptied into the drain with warm running water to dilute. The substance is water based with added thickener, therefore not harmful. The outer casing can then be placed into your normal household recycling bin.
Non Recyclable Plastics
Any plastic used within our postal packaging is plastic from our own purchases (such as bubble wrap and sealed air void fill.
We recycle these items by re using them inside our postal boxes to help protect our macarons & treats.
Whilst these items can't be widely recycled at home (council dependant), you can recycle them along with plastic bags at supermarket collection points across the UK.
