Microfibre cloths are made of plastic fibres derived from crude oil or natural gas. When washed, microfibre fabric can leak tens of thousands (even millions) of tiny microplastics into the washing machine water; this water inevitably makes its way into local waterways. In the environment, these microplastics can harm animals, cause pollution, and leach out dangerous chemicals.
All our cardboard is uncoated (no glossy polymer coatings here) and made from a minimum of 70% recycled material. Some virgin material is always required to give the papers the strength. Our packaging company is FSC certified which means all the virgin materials are sourced from sustainable and managed forests. We use single black print to make recycling as easy as possible once disposed of.
