Progress on plastic – introducing our eco-friendly packaging for sweets

Plastic is a big problem, choking our rivers and breaking down into microplastics in the sea. But the tide is turning, with Burger King’s amnesty on plastic toys, Cif introducing eco refills and Dove’s new 100% recycled bottles. We are firmly on board with this progress, and we would like to introduce our compostable and reusable packaging for sweets and confectionery.

Our eco-friendly packaging was developed response to consumer demand, as we kept hearing the same thing from customers: They were keen to continue gifting confectionery, but they wanted to find an alternative to conventional plastic packaging.

We listened, and we now have confectionery packaging that is both completely compostable and made from 100% plant materials, plus reusable packaging that can be repurposed before eventually being recycled.

So, what are bioplastics?

Bioplastics are made from plant materials. They are compostable, which solves the problem of how to dispose of them. Plus making plant-based materials emits less carbon than making most types of plastic.

Our pots are made out of a compostable bioplastic derived from plant sugars. This bioplastic is called PLA (or polylactide biopolymer resin). The pots are certified compostable, which means each pot will compost in under 12 weeks once it is thrown away with commercial food waste recycling.

Whilst many natural products are biodegradable, compostable packaging takes things a step further because it happens quickly.

Our pots are also classed as a renewable resource. This means a substance which can be replaced or replenished in the same amount of time (or less time) than it takes to draw the supply down.

What about reusable packaging?

On the one hand, compostable packaging neatly solves the problem of how to dispose of packaging. But what about packaging that doesn’t need to be disposed of at all?

We have sweets available in tins, and they are often kept for years. They can be used as pen holders, storage containers, refilled with sweets and stashed in the desk drawer – the possibilities are endless.

Not only does this cut down on waste, but from a business perspective it will give you a lot of repeat impressions! And when the tins are eventually no longer needed, they can be recycled.

Showing your sweet side and your responsible side

Confectionery is a fantastic, feel-good gift which will leave a positive impression. But by taking care to select eco-friendly packaging, you can also show that you are a responsible company who cares about the planet.

Our compostable pots are clearly labelled so your customers understand what they are getting, and also how to dispose of it.

I’m sold! What have you got?

Our midi eco pot is a bestseller for good reason. It’s a good size at a great price point, with a nice amount of sweets without being too expensive.

Our eco satchel sweet bags are made from a film derived from eucalyptus trees. These bags can even be thrown into a home compost bin.

Our tins of sweets can be repurposed as a desk tidy, and some are even printed with a calendar for use over a full year. We have London bus gift tins, money box gift tins, small paint tins, large paint tins, snack gift tins, treat gift tins and promotional treat tins.

We also have plastic-free recyclable gift boxes and craft cubes made from cardboard, which can be readily recycled.
