Just a quick Note on My Packaging & Environmental Impacts
Much thought has gone into my packaging and it has evolved over time to be pretty much all made from recycled materials and is fully (apart from my wax stamp and the grease-proof paper on my round bars)recyclable.
So that's not much that needs to go into the landfill bin.
To further reduce waste I now recycle any off cuts from my packaging ,which is handmade, and all shredded
office paper waste are now being made into handmade papers that are then used in the parcels
that are sent out through the post.I also reuse and shred any incoming paper from deliveries too.
In the process of making this handmade paper I am also able to utilize remaining materials and natural colourants such as the madder root used in my rose geranium soap.
These additional natural byproducts add interest and colour to the paper and so even less is being thrown out.
Additionally the clear display bags that I use are produced from wood pulp and are fully biodegradable and compostable.
Just cut the bag smaller pieces and add to your compost bin or collection garden waste.
Just also on a side note I have a very clever way of cleaning my mixing equipment, bowls blender and spatulas that takes off virtually all of the remaining soap batter by using old towels that I can then put through the wash with their own soap on them. Genius.
