We use as little plastic as possible in the boxes. Often chopped items, due to food safety standards, have to be wrapped or leaves are bagged in plastic or they will decompose thus creating more food waste.
Our plastic pledges:
+ We will avoid plastic wherever possible. We ask all our growers if they could sell their produce to us without the use of plastic.
+ Where we can, we spend time packing very small things e.g. sprouts and shrooms into brown paper bags.
+ We prioritise all produce that is at risk of going to waste - sometimes it may already be cut from the ground and wrapped in plastic (e.g. those items destined for other markets), in this case we figure it best to give it a home instead of both food and plastic ending up in landfill.
