reduce, reuse, recycle Our local council have just implemented a new recycling programme which is fantastic.  Being in a rural location, previously we had to take all our recyclables other than paper to a waste centre some miles away. We were always keen to do this but many either can’t or don’t. The new system means that as a family we only produce one pedal bin bag for landfill every two weeks with everything else now being collected from the roadside….great! It’s good to finally catch up with other parts of the UK and elsewhere in the world.  Whilst living in Australia nearly 20 years ago most of this stuff was collected which was way ahead of its time compared to the UK.

 

We were keen to implement these principles when we set up The Croft House.  Our polythene mailers are made from 100% recycled films and are biodegradable.  When needed we also use bubble wrap and fill-products which are made in the UK and also biodegradable either in landfill or through composting. Helping you do your bit whenever you buy from us!
