Going greener .....

Posted on

Well, I gave myself a bit of a stern "talking to" last week ... about my packaging, as I use far too much plastic. Whilst my carrier bags are biodegradeable, none of the packaging I use for the herbs and spices is.

So, over the next few months I am going to experiment with some new packaging types, all of which will be fully recyclable, re-usable and / or biodegradeable. I want to be sure that the new packaging maintains the quality of my herbs and spices and I would value any feedback from you lovely people on whether the packaging is "user friendly". 

I am also gradually increasing the number of Certified Organic and Fair Trade products. Whilst many of the herbs and spices I sell are grown using organic methods, not all are "Certified Organic", which I know is important for many of you. Latest organic additions are Marjoram, Bay Leaves, Poppy Seeds.

New labelling, with green hearts, allows you to see which herbs and spice are Certified Organic at a glance and I will be adding more as I source more top quality Certified Organic produce. Don't forget my stock is non-irradiated and GMO free.

Meanwhile, I am looking forward to trading at the Saltaire Festival this weekend 17th to 20th September
