Shaking up sustainability
As well as focusing on making great tasting dairy drinks we’re also committed to ensuring we’re taking steps so our business is as sustainable as possible. Read below to find out the things we already do to improve on this, and also what our future plans are!
Our bottles and cartons
We use PET bottles which are fully recyclable
Our PET bottles are made from 30% recycled plastic
Our cartons are made from FSC Certified cardboard (The Forest Stewardship Council – which promotes responsible management of the worlds forests). They can be widely recycled.
We also only use British milk, which is sourced locally to our factory, to help cut down our milk miles
All the electricity we use in our offices is run off solar panels
Events and festivals:
All our cups are made with recycled paper and are fully compostable
We only use paper straws at every single event we attend
We don’t supply any plastic lids (sorry, but it saves on a lot of waste!)
We carefully coordinate our staff to ensure they car share when travelling to and from events
We no longer use polyboxes and have replaced them with cardboard boxes with linings made from recycled paper or wool.
Note: Wool is a great insulator and a natural, sustainable source as it’s a by-product of rearing sheep. The wool insulation is totally compostable and biodegradable, releasing valuable nitrates back into the soil.
