Nowadays, plastic free packaging should be seen as the rule not the exception. For Pala we have long been plastic free and will continue to look to seek partners that are innovating in this space and minimising their own impact on the environment.
Box: Made from cardboard FSC MIX C114468. Recyclable
Postcards: Made from recycled card stock and unlaminated. Vegan friendly inks. To be re-used!
Swing Tags: made from recycled card stock and unlaminated. Vegan friendly inks. Recyclable
Mailer Bags: Padded envelope made from recycled materials and is recyclable.
We will always recommend re-using the mailer and the box where you can. If you are UK based then return your old frames to us and we will have them responsibly recycled. What better use than that!
Where we can, we will look at where we can encourage small changes in our supply chain. In the past, when our frames have arrived from our manufacturer they have always been wrapped in individual plastic bags for their protection. It’s necessary to have the protection, but not the plastic, so we encouraged our supplier to replace with 100% corn starch (biodegradable) bags by purchasing a big batch for them. We also suggested they might want to use for their other customers too. Small steps, big change!
