Environmental Policy

As an internet retailer, we use a lot of packing materials.

It is the policy of Becky and Lolo to wherever possible re-use inbound packaging materials.

This means:

  • All boxes which are of a suitable size and in a good enough condition are re-used.
  • All internal packaging (bubble wrap, chips etc) of suitable condition is re-used
  • External wrapping (bags, pallet wrap etc) of suitable condition are re-used for protective internal packaging.

Where we do not have suitable materials to re-use we will always try to use the most environmentally friendly packaging materials.

  • We only buy biodegradable chips. These are made of corn starch and can be composted or dissolve in water. They can also be eaten, although we would not recommend this.
  • Our newspaper offcuts which are used as internal packaging are made from 100% recycled material
  • Our kraft paper which is used as internal packaging is made from 100% recycled material
  • Our boxes are made from part recycled material (outside new material, inside recycled material)
  • Our corrugated sheet is made from 100% recycled material.

Any inbound packaging materials which cannot be re-used are sorted and wherever possible recycled. We estimate that less than 5% of incoming packaging goes to landfill.
