All of our packagings are fully recyclable, made in the UK from recycled materials that have been produced in the UK, minimising our carbon footprint.
We appreciate that packaging is a sensitive subject and nobody takes it more seriously than us, however, there is a lot of headline-grabbing statements about packaging both plastic, plant-based and biodegradable that are simply untrue.
We have spent a lot of time making conscious decisions for our business regarding our packaging and none of the choices we make is taken lightly and all are made with the environment in mind.
We believe in a 'circular economy' and the production process of 'closing the loop’ with this ethos recycled packaging waste is collected, recycled and used to make new products, and we believe that this is where our efforts should be focused. This culture is in stark contrast to choosing plant-based packaging that takes from the environment most devastatingly. We believe we need education and accountability from us as consumers, decision-makers, councils and ultimately our government, put quite simply we are not doing enough to make this happen.
So-called bio-degradable and plant-based packaging may look good on the surface hailed as a 'badge-of-honour' and causing a 'smoke screen' for how those single-use products are produced and the damage they are causing to our fragile environment, especially packaging that relies on natural resources for its production, is single-use before being thrown away to rot, surely this is anything but good for the environment.
When we consider ‘anything’ for LUNA & me, we start with the environmental impact, ensuring our environmental footprint remains as small as possible. We care deeply about our natural world, and yes we did say the world!
