Our Pledge on Packaging

We understand how frustrating it is to order a low/zero waste product and have it arrive in 15 layers of packaging, often plastic!

To try and minimise waste Lil’s packaging follows the following practices:

  • Where possible we reuse packaging which we have received from our suppliers– so your parcel may not look too pretty!

  • We use recycled paper to package your products safely inside the box - no bubble wrap or foam peanuts.

  • We use compostable paper tape made from brown 100% recycled paper - totally biodegradable tape that can be recycled or composted with your box.

  • Where we do need to use new boxes these will always be made from recycled cardboard.

  • Our postage labels are printed on recycled paper.

  • We ask that our customers please reuse, recycle, or compost any packaging we send your way :) If you need any advice on this – just ask.

  • We offer local customers the option to collect their purchases from us free of charge with prior arrangement, it all helps!

 

Any Queries     

Please email us at hello@dolilthings.org if you have any queries about delivery or packaging. If for any reason your order does not arrive as expected please email us quoting your order number, and we will investigate as soon as possible.
