We have changed to sustainable recycled paper packaging at NHR Organic Oils and ended the use of plastic. With the introduction of paper NHR logo tape we are now 100% plastic free in our packaging department.
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, 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 sent out in recyclable padded paper fibre envelopes instead of plastic bubble wrap lined ones. We use corn-based packing chips.
When we have a delivery with styro chips or bubble wrap, we will reuse them to keep them in circulation for as long as possible so that they donít 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 Octopus Energy which is from 100% renewable sources.
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.
