We are always looking at ways to reduce our environmental impact and whilst setting up Abstract one thing we were sure about is that we wanted to use 100% recyclable packaging.
We are very proud to say that all our coffee packaging is 100% recyclable and has been from day one. We went through a lot of options whilst choosing packaging but we settled on our current style due to how easy it is to recycle. We don’t want it to be hard work for you to dispose of our packaging in an environmentally friendly way.
The Coffee Bag
The coffee bags we use are made from 100% LDPE (4) plastic meaning they can be recycled with your Local Authority if they collect things such as ‘bread bags, frozen food bags, squeezable bottles and carrier bags’.
If your Local Authority doesn’t collect these things then you will often be able to recycle our coffee bags at your local supermarket where they collect carrier bags for recycling.
We opted against using stickers for labels on our bags as this would mean they can no longer be recycled easily without fully removing them first. To make things as easy as possible for you with have printed our labels on recycled paper cards that are themselves recyclable with your usual paper/cardboard recycling.
The Postal Boxes
Our postal boxes you receive your coffee bags in are also 100% recyclable with your usual paper/cardboard recycling.
Thank you in advance for disposing of your packaging in an environmentally friendly way,
The Abstract Team.
