Eco-friendly packaging at Costello's

Posted by Costello's Bakery on 4th Jun 2021

Did you know that 100% of our packaging can be recycled or home composted?

Your items will arrive in a recyclable cardboard box, packed with paper and sealed with recyclable paper parcel tape. For smaller parcels, we use mailing bags made from 80% reclaimed material which are 100% recyclable.

Our wrapping that keeps our cakes fresh is derived from wood pulp, sourced from responsibly-managed forests. The wood pulp carries FSC™ (Forest Stewardship Council™) and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) Chain of Custody certifications.

This means that your whole order is completely plastic-free! Wahoo!

Furthermore, we try to reduce waste and plastic use as much as possible in our coffee shops. Our coffee cups are made from FSC-certified paper and feature a plant-based lining. Lids are made entirely from plant-based CPLA so both can be composted after use. We use cardboard cup sleeves, wooden coffee stirrers, wooden take out cutlery and paper straws.

When you shop with us, you can be confident that your products have been delivered with an environmental and social conscience, and a positive approach to the world’s single use plastic problem.
