Plastic Free packaging
For a long time now we have been working on making our packaging plastic free. Now that we have again found some environmentally friendly alternatives, almost 95% of all outer packaging is now without plastic.
We mainly use it for shipping:
- recycled paper, crumpled paper
- Corn-based products as packaging chips
- Pure wood wool
- Pergamin bags (sandwich bags)
- transparent films made of PLA (biodegradable organic plastic)
Basically we have already talked to many suppliers, to send products on the way to us already without Plasitk. This is not always successful, but the number is growing due to our suggestions and experience.
We have also thought long and hard about what to do with the used packaging material from our suppliers and have decided that we will not dispose of these materials, but will use them in moderation to give them a second "life". In this way, raw materials are saved and reused sensibly, as they have already been produced anyway.
Many thanks also for the suggestions of all schools and private customers, who support us in this and give us useful tips.
A small contribution from us and you, for clean oceans.
