We always re-use the boxes, bubble-wrap and other forms of packaging we end up with. We also shred used paper and paperwork to make our own protective material. All packaging we buy ourselves is biodegradable. Our brown cardboard boxes are biodegradable and recyclable, as is the eco-friendly green bubble-wrap we use - 100% biodegradable. After we have finished the last stock of brown Polypropylene tape (inherited to us by another business), we will be upgrading to a biodegradable paper Kraft parcel tape.
