Thanks to the eye-opening scenes of Blue Planet, more and more of the population are considering the impact of their actions. We are in awe of the work that Sir David Attenborough has done. That’s why, at The March Hare Bakery we are committed to being as sustainable as we possibly can, in order to reduce the impact our bakery has on the planet.
Here are some of the ways we are making The March Hare Bakery more sustainable:
About our packaging
When selecting our packaging, we try our hardest to source either biodegradable or recyclable, using as little plastic as possible.
Our macaron boxes are made completely from cardboard. Our tags, flavour menus & cards are all made from recycled card.
The tray inserts to hold the macarons in place are made from plastic, these can be recycled along with your household recycling.
The cushion pads inside our boxes to protect our macarons & treats during shipping are made from glassine paper (produced from wood pulp), making these biodegradable.
Any plastic used in our postal packaging is recycled plastic from our own purchases, that we then pass on to the next person and we hope our customers will do the same with the recycled plastic they receive off us in their order.
Our postal boxes are either completely biodegradable or recyclable. We also use shredded paper filler which is made from recycled paper. Our stickers are made from recycled paper are 100% biodegradable. 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.
Small Batch Baking
All of our macarons are freshly baked to order in small batches, ensuring no ingredients are wasted. Any left-over macarons are used in our Rocky Road Macsicles, Marshmallows, Macaron Kisses, in our bags of Maca-Wrongs, or given away - spreading the Macaron Love.
We hope our customers appreciate the efforts we have gone to, to help reduce the plastic waste and damages we are causing to our planet.
BE KIND TO OUR PLANET!
