Our commitment to eco-friendly, sustainable order packaging.

We were recently contacted by a customer who had received their order from us and were delighted to see that we had reused the packaging in which their new products were packed.

It was pleasing to find that a customer shared our beliefs and that our commitment to eco-friendly packaging was noticed. We believe that we have a responsibility to care for the environment and hope that our customers feel the same.

Having said that, of course we want to make sure that orders reach their new home in perfect condition and we work hard to pack carefully to ensure that items are well protected in transit.

We always carefully hand-wrap your item(s) in protective materials and we use sustainable materials such as recycled paper and cardboard. Doing so means that we don’t have to use bubble wrap or pellets in most cases.

Indeed, we never buy new bubble wrap – we simply reuse previously used packaging or obtain unwanted materials from local businesses. We then use sustainably-sourced, reinforced cardboard packaging to keep it safe.

We strive to use recycled packaging materials and by reusing cardboard and paper materials, we can reduce our reliance on new materials. It’s a win-win.

As a result, when you receive your order from Rustic Trading, it will include packaging that has been used before but we ensure that all packaging used is clean and sturdy and suitable for the item(s) it is protecting.

In receipt of their order, we then encourage customers to reuse the packaging their order arrives in. Or at the very least, to ensure that it is suitably recycled.


Additionally, we are committed to working with delivery partners that share our vision for carbon neutrality and as such we either select carbon neutral couriers, or if this isn’t possible for operational reasons, we offset the carbon used.
