Our Packaging

We’ve put a lot of love and thought into our packaging as well as our product collections. Something we're very passionate about here at House to Haven.  It's important to us, that the packaging for our products aligns with what we stand for - an environmentally friendly haven. 

We seek to end packaging waste and its undesirable effects on the environment. We prioritise the use of recyclable packaging and try our best to find ethically sourced materials and even upcycle products. We are committed to only using necessary packaging and easily recycled materials wherever possible.

Let's talk boxes

All our parcel boxes are made of 100% biodegradable cardboard. We also try and reuse any boxes we have from our supplier orders or other companies. The outer packaging may not always look pretty but we hate to see them go to waste. Where possible we will use an eco-padded envelope or the smallest box possible for your order to reduce wasted packaging. 

To help reduce the amount of packaging we use, your click and collect and local orders won't be boxed but we'll use recycled bags to keep your order dry and COVID safe.   

What about the tape and string?

We'll wrap your order with biodegradable hemp jute string to give it a special added touch when you open it. We also seal all our packages with brown Kraft recycled paper tape, a 100% biodegradable, compostable packaging tape.  Even the tape’s adhesive is solvent-free and compostable.

We love hearing from you

Do you have any questions or thoughts on how we could better improve our packaging? Would you like to send your packaging back to us to reuse again?

 

Just drop us a note anytime. We'd love to hear from you.

Recycled packaging

Packaging materials?

We want our parcels to look great but be kind to the environment at the same time. All the items we send are safely wrapped and padded using recycled paper, eco wood wool or corrugated cardboard. All of which are 100% recyclable and compostable. Your wood wool can also be safely used as a fire starter. 

 

You will not find any bubble wrap, polystyrene or foam peanuts round here!  So, you can reuse, recycle or simply compost all our packaging.

And the thank you cards?

Our marketing materials such as business cards, thank you cards and stickers are all recyclable.

 

So, when you've finished with them why not reuse and pass to a friend, recycle, or simply compost them.
