We are beyond excited to announce our next step towards a greener future… The introduction of glass bottle and jar returns! Let's take a dive into the benefits of re-using glass.
Traditionally (Post world war times) it was rare to find a container which would only be used a single time. Taking milk bottles as an example, these were continually collected and used time and time again, providing a highly sustainable cycle! Whilst recycling glass is still highly efficient (compared to making it from scratch) cleaning and re-using is by far the most environmentally approach!
The main reason you don’t see too many bottle return schemes, is that the sterilisation process is fairly labor intensive, however we see this an essential path forward towards a greener future.
Our ultimate goal is to have a range of packaging which can all be efficiently re-used, whilst we think up other ways to improve on this, please recycle anything that can’t be returned.
You can drop your empties off at any of our stores, see below to find your nearest one!
