With Ecommerce now the fastest growing retail maket in europe , there’s a greater need than ever to package our goods safely and securely whilst they’re in transit. Legacy wants to ensure that every order reaches you quickly, whilst also remaining in the pristine condition you’d expect to find it in .
So What Is Eco Friendly Packaging?
“Eco-friendly packaging is easily recycled, and is safe for individuals and the environment. It makes use of renewable energy, and uses as much renewable or recycled materials as possible. “
It is also known as green packaging, or sustainable packaging. Eco packaging causes less damage to the environment than other types of packaging due to falling in to one of 3 possible categories:
- It can be reused
- It can be recycled
- It’s biodegradable
Some eco packaging items can be used again in their original form, others are made of materials that can be recycled and made into something else and others simply decompose in an environmentally friendly way.
So What Steps Have Legacy Taken To Help The Envoirment ?
Phase 1 : Mailing bags – Here at Legacy we use plenty of poly bags to mail your items out and we as a company have made the decison to get a more environmentally friendly option.
The good news is from 1st April all orders will go out in the new mailer bags made from recycled materials.
Legacys Founder Adam Franks said “I am really excited to make this change here at Legacy. This is just the first step into many changes that we are going to make here over the next year to help the envoirment. Phase 2 is going to be the most exciting and I can’t wait until we make that public in a few weeks.”
