Nature's packaging

We never use pointless plastic. If it doesn’t need it, we won’t wrap it.

1.5 tonnes of plastic saved per year by ...

  • Swapping to compostable beech nets (removing 180km per year of plastic netting)
  • Unwrapping popular veg after testing them without plastic, such as romanesco and cauliflower
  • Moving 430,000 items into recyclable packaging

We’ve also reduced paper bags by 120,277 per year!
