Our fight against plastic

BigGreenSmile’s fight against plastic

BigGreenSmile’s fight against plastic

A key topic on everyone’s mind at the moment is plastic packaging and how it can be reduced or eliminated altogether. So, what are we doing to tackle this issue?

 

Plastic Free ProductsPlastic free products

We encourage suppliers to minimise use of plastic and when reviewing new product lines prioritise those that contain no plastic all. You can see our plastic free range here >> 

 

Plastic Free WipesPlastic free wipes

We have discontinued all baby and facial wipes that contain plastic and are looking to source wipes without outer plastic packaging. Find plastic free wipes here >>

 

Plastic Free PackagingPlastic free packaging

Plastic packaging received from suppliers with our deliveries is put straight into dedicated recycling bins that are situated around our warehouse. The pellets we use to protect your goods in orders are made from starch that is 100% biodegradable. The pellets offer great protection, ensuring products reach you in perfect condition. The boxes we use are plastic free and we use paper tape with zero plastic in it to secure your boxes.

The operation at Big Green Smile is almost entirely plastic free. At the moment, we have to use plastic to wrap the pallets that are sent to our shipping companies - but we are working hard to source a fit-for-purpose, non-plastic alternative and aim to achieve this by the end of 2019.
