As well as being passionate about what goes into my products I'm passionate about what goes around them (and one of the reasons I started to make solid soap is because I wanted to minimise single use plastic). You eat with your eyes right? So I had a long think about packaging, I want you to see the products when they're on display but didn't want to use plastics so I decided to use a fully home compostable cellophane for the body soaps. Composting is king! Recycling takes up energy but these wrappers can be composted at home in a well managed compost heap and can even go in council food bins.
Here’s a link to find out more about the wrappers.
As my hair products are uncoloured I decided to go with paper wrappers, it also helps to easily destinguish between the products. After a bit of shopping around I found deli wrappers that are vegan friendly and made with vegetable inks. They're super easy to recycle too!
All of my packaging labels are made using vegan inks and the label, along with the adhesive is biodegradable.
When I'm mailing out your orders I want them to arrive in the same condition as they left and I use packaging that’s either reused, made from recycled materials or is recyclable.
Because of the work I’ve done on eliminating single use plastic Superfly Soap has been awarded Plastic Free Champion status from Surfers Against Sewage but the work continues and I'm constantly looking at ways I can reduce the use of SUP's in the production side of the business.
