We aim to post out all online sales within 24 hours, however due to the opening times of the shop we are unable to ship any orders on Sundays or Mondays. Any orders made during these times will be posted on Tuesdays.
19) What packaging do you use?
As a company we are trying to make ourselves sustainable and in line with the consensus on plastic. Therefore we recycle, reuse and repurpose as much packaging as we can. So your parcel may arrive in reused packaging and any bubble wrap we use is reused too. We ask local businesses to send their packaging to us to reuse. As we move forward we will stop using bubble wrap and start using a paper version which can be recycled- but again this will be reused as many times as possible before being recycled.
