We are proud to have created a closed loop system where, at end-of-life, our product is either biodegradable or fully recyclable. We wanted to be a completely plastic-free business but could not find an alternative for the plastic stopper in the top of the hot water bottles. The plastic we use for the stopper is the same plastic used in milk containers and recycled the same way or sent back to us along with the rest of the bottle.
Please see details below about how to recycle our products.Knitted Hot Water Bottle Covers and all knitwear
All of our knitwear is made from 100% natural fibres. Our wools are either lambswool or a blend of 75% virgin cashmere and 25% recycled cashmere. All labels are 100% organic cotton and printed with soya ink and attached with 100% cotton. This means it is a lot easier to recycle the knitwear at end-of-life and it is also fully biodegradable.
All of our cardboard packaging and labels are made from 100% recycled card and are printed with soy ink. These are all 100% recyclable. The string attaching our hang tags is made from 100% organic cotton. Our mailer bags are biodegradable as is our packaging ribbon and greeting card bags.
Our digital cards are printed on 100% recycled card and our riso print cards are printed on 80% recycled card. The ink used in our riso print cards is soy based.
