Examples of our sustainable packaging solutions

From production through to the packing process and final point of delivery, our packaging solutions are designed to meet the unique needs of your business whilst keeping the planet at heart. Our sustainable packaging solutions minimise material usage, utilise recycled content where feasible, and provide adequate protection for your products.

Making sustainability simple

We know that making an informed decision about sustainability is important. That’s why we make it as simple and as transparent as possible to choose the most appropriate solution for your needs. Our packaging sustainability symbols are designed to provide you with valuable information about the environmental impact of your packaging, as well as guidance on how to dispose of it in a manner that supports a circular economy.

Recycled Content %

Recycled Content %

Our packaging features a figure indicating the percentage of recycled content. If your business is impacted by the Plastic Packaging Tax, our diverse selection of products that contain a minimum of 30% recycled content may be an ideal solution for you.


At end of life, packaging products that contain the recyclable symbol can be appropriately home recycled. This means that the recycling process can take place without having to go through a special process.


Compostable marked products are made using compostable materials, which means they can be broken down organically through either home or industrial composting methods. Recommended compost methods can be requested per product to achieve the organic matter in the most efficient way.


Products labelled as biodegradable can be broken down by naturally occurring microorganisms and turned into compounds found in nature. Made with biodegradable materials, your packaging will leave no traces and more importantly, no toxin in the environment.


The FSC Certification enables you as a business to choose wood, paper and other forest-made materials from well-managed forests and recycled sources. FSC-certified packaging can help demonstrate a commitment to responsible sourcing. A small logo with a powerful message.
