Why do you use plastic?

We use bags which are made of recycled plastic so are as environmentally responsible as possible and where possible we minimise the use of packaging. Please re-use and recycle the bags. Plastic is also the best packaging to preserve some veg, particularly leaves, maintaining its quality and freshness.

The plastic vs. paper debate is extensive and largely inconclusive with paper weighing more, filling up more landfill and using more water and creating more waste in the manufacturing process and plastic bags causing issues to wildlife. Therefore we aim to reduce our environmental impact with packaging by minimising our using and being selective in choice of material.
