Packaging for a brighter future

In the coming weeks, we are updating our packaging. We’re taking a leap from using biodegradable plastic bags to fully reusable jute bags. We believe this is the right thing to do and because reusable bags are not cheap, we need your assistance:


How to return the bags

Some people are already returning their bags – and it’s pretty straight forward. Simply hand over the old bag to your pickup point at the same time you pickup your new bag. If you have a home delivery, just leave the old bag on your doorstep.

We know that customers will sometimes forget. We can cope for a few weeks, however if you keep forgetting to return your bags, we will quickly run out. Then we will decide whether to continue with this plan.

Why are we doing this?

Although plastic bags are convenient, we’ve been uncomfortable with them, as have many customers. Every year, millions of tonnes of plastic end up in our oceans or get incinerated, releasing pollution. We don’t want to be part of that story. Our farm is about demonstrating a brighter future where we are smart with our resources and work together to create a circular economy, where materials are recovered, recycled and reused.

The jute bag is made from jute material, a natural fibre which comes from plants. It’s biodegradable, which means it can be  decomposed rapidly by the action of microorganisms. It will have plenty of usage before it comes to that.

Thank you for all your suggestions on packaging and we’d love to hear your feedback on this.
