UK-based Virginia Hayward has added new eco-friendly packaging options to its existing range of hampers and gifts by using biodegradable bubble bags, air strips and loose fill.
The recyclable bubble bags and air strips reduce plastic pollution and the volume of plastic going to landfill. The loose fill or Ecoflow is also recyclable and 100% biodegradable which is made from sustainable raw materials. It can be recycled in the cardboard or paper waste streams or can be composted.
Virginia Hayward production manager Wayne Stevens said that the company uses environmentally-friendly packaging for its hampers with a huge range of traditional and innovative products from water hyacinth to wicker.
