Recycling your Flora & Curl
After enjoying your Flora & Curl products down to the last drop, we encourage you to recycle your packaging so that it can be put to good use, rather than putting it in the waste bin. Our product packaging options are eco-friendly by way of their recyclability. Our delivery packaging options are eco-friendly by way of their biodegradability and re-usability.
We are exploring recycled plastic packaging in 2021 and reviewing our entire supply chain carbon footprint. This helpful guide contains information on recycling your Flora & Curl product packaging after usage.
3 steps to recycle
your Flora & Curl product bottles
Once you have enjoyed your Flora & Curl products to the very last drop, the packaging can be recycled and turned into a new use.
Simply rinse out the jar or bottle with some warm water and dish washing soap. Give it a little shake and it should be good to go!
Place your recyclable component inside your local recycling bin. The recyclable packaging will make its way to be repurposed.
Your Flora & Curl delivery packaging
We ship out your goodies using eco-friendly and biodegradable shipping boxes, filling material and leaflet.
+ Eco-friendly delivery boxes
With minimal packaging, our delivery boxes are 100% recyclable and biodegradable. The addition of water-based, non-toxic inks, coloured with vegetable pigments also maintains the eco-friendly nature of our delivery boxes.
To create vegetable-based inks, these vegetable oils include soy, linseed, tung, castor, canola and safflower oils! Working with soybean derived ink releases 2-4% VOCs into the atmosphere as opposed to the 30%, which common petroleum-based inks do. These inks are a lot easier to clean during the recycling process as all that is needed is water instead of harsh chemicals.
+ Eco-friendly filler material
Each box is filled with recyclable and biodegradable filling materials to provide the cushioning of the products during transit.
+ We use eco-friendly postcards, leaflets and order slips
Our postcards are biodegradable and recyclable. We opted for our U.S. sourced postcards to be printed on 14pt card stock gloss – the highest of our supplier’s selection of recycled materials consisted, comfortably sitting at 55% of recycled materials used. Our gloss prints are coated in non-toxic water-based aqueous as this further fulfil its biodegradable properties! Our order slips are also recyclable.
FSC & PEFC Certified
Our leaflets are FSC and PEFC certified, recyclable and biodegradable.
Who are the FSC and PEFC?
The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Scheme is an independent not-for-profit organisation non-governmental body that has been prevalent within the sustainability sector. They ensure that purchasers of wood and paper products are promoting sustainable management of forest and provide our suppliers with 100% guilt-free resources from nature.
In addition to this, our suppliers also receive further sustainable materials to create our leaflets from the Forest Stewardship Council. They are also a not-for-profit organisation that are constantly finding solutions to help deter further bad forestry and instead promotes and rewards good forestry management.
