Plastic Free July - Dispelling Plastic Myths

Posted by Alice White on

We know that being green isn’t always easy, with so much misinformation making it harder to know what is the right choice to make. 

DID YOU KNOW? It takes 450 years for an average plastic bottle to decompose. Why not swap to a reusable metal water bottle instead? Ours are BPA free and keep liquids cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12 hours. 

DO YOU KNOW? What any of these recycling logos mean?

Neither do we! We find them hard to understand how to recycle our plastic waste. We have developed our own recycling guide that tells you exactly what to do when you have finished enjoying our products. If you are ever in doubt, turn over the packaging to find this guide on the back of pack

DID YOU KNOW? Foil balloons are made from a material called Mylar that is neither recyclable or Biodegradable. Our balloons are all made from natural latex. Latex decomposes naturally, but should always be disposed of responsibly. Our balloons also come with paper ribbon so the whole pack is fully plastic free.

DID YOU KNOW? Most paper cups are not recyclable as they are lined with plastic to keep them water tight. Our new paper cups are a world first & fully recyclable. Both the cups & packaging can be easily recycled at home, so pop into your recycling guilt free!
