Deni Grocer has a Sustainable Packaging Practice. We use recyclable and some biodegradable packaging materials to help minimise our carbon footprint.
Our Woolcool Food Protectors are 100% felted sheep’s wool which is washed in a natural process, scoured then sealed within recyclable industry grade micro-perforated polyethylene wrap. This can enable you to recycle/reuse the wool liners in a number of ways including use for picnic hampers,craft projects or pet baskets.
If you’re not looking to re-use the Woolcool Liners, simply remove the plastic liner that can be put in with the standard plastic recycling, then just put the wool liner into either a compost bin or dig into the soil in your garden as the wool will release valuable nitrates back into the soil as it breaks down. Some local authorities will accept the wool in household garden waste bins, it is just a matter of checking with your local council to find out what recycling facilities are available in your area. Even if the wool is disposed in general waste, it will breakdown in a landfill.
Our gel ice packs are non-toxic and the gel is suitable to dispose of in any sink with running water. The outer shell is kerbside recyclable.
The cardboard boxes you receive your order in is recyclable in your household bin.
