We have changed to sustainable recycled paper packaging at NHR Organic Oils and ending the use of plastic.
For the last 6 months, Will our packaging manager, has been on a mission to change all our packaging to environmental friendly non-plastic, for example our plastic bubble wrap, has been changed to sustainable recycled paper bubble wrap packaging. When it comes to parcel packaging, our push to go green is a priority for us. We no longer buy any new plastic for parcel packaging.

We are now using die cut 3D honeycomb structure recycled Kraft paper with tissue interleaf paper as a sustainable alternative to bubble wrap. Small orders are now sent out in recyclable padded paper fibre envelopes instead of plastic bubble rape lined ones. we use corn-based When we have a delivery with styro chips or bubble wrap, we reuse them to keep them in circulation for as long as possible so that they don’t just end up in landfill or the sea. We also reuse cardboard and Kraft paper. We are about to source natural bottles plastic alternatives for example bamboo, sugar cane, rice husk, hemp bottles so we can stop using plastic petro plastic bottles and jars.
It feels such an important time for everyone to do all we can to help with the environment. For example all our power is supplied by Ecotricity with is 100% guaranteed to be from sustainable sources only.
At NHR Organic Oils we take great care over our packaging. We endeavour to find the right containers for the right products to ensure the oils are not only protected from heat and light, but are also secure during transit.
We review our packaging regularly to make sure we are using the safest and the most environmentally friendly containers.
