We are committed to trying to reduce our impact on the environment. We are conscious of the amount of waste and non re-usable items many companies choose to use for packaging because it's cheaper and looks shiny on their website or on shelves. At Pure Delight Hemp, we are the manufacturer and supplier of many of our own products allowing us the freedom to choose our packaging responsibly. This makes our packaging cost us up to 400% more than their cheaper counterparts but we absorb those costs to bring you a product we are proud of.
Our orders go out in boxes (recycled where possible), with shredded recycled paper to keep your products safe. When orders are placed in satchels, these can be returned to Australia Post for recycling. Large orders are packed with packing peanuts that are a potato starch and will break down quickly back to organic components. In place of bubble wrap for glass and fragile items, we utilise RanPack packaging, a recycled paper based cushioning.
We also keep all the packaging we receive from our suppliers and try give it another life.
Hemp Protein, Hemp Flour and Hulled Seeds
These items are all packed in Eco Pouches. These pouches currently the best biodegradable pouch we can find on the marked. They are approved to be home compostable. The biodegradable additive complies with the Federal, Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDA) C.F.R. Chapter 21, and the Regulation European Union No. 10/2011.
Hemp Seed Oil Products
Our oil 250ml size Hemp Seed Oil is packaged into a recyclable glass bottle. They can be re-used as a dispenser from the larger 4L tin. Our 750ml size Hemp Seed Oil is packaged in a high quality stainless steel drink bottle. Simply wash the oil out and you have a sturdy water bottle.
Shampoo and Conditioner
These products took a little time to find a suitable package for. We use a 100% recycled rPET bottle produced here in Australia in a carbon neutral factory.
Body Butter, Hands on Hemp Hand Cream, Lip Balm and Moisturising Hemp Face Scrub
These are packaged in recyclable aluminium canisters. We have chosen aluminium as our base material as:
- aluminium is infinitely recyclable
- it takes 95% less energy to recycle than to produce from raw material (this makes it very likely your aluminium is actually reused)
- up to 75% of all aluminium produced in history is still in use today
- it takes less energy to recycle aluminium than it does glass
- being lightweight, its shipping carbon footprint is a lot lighter than glass and other materials
The Golden Face Savers AND Sunflower Sun Protection Cream have refill services available also. Check it out HERE. Basically send back 6 bottles and we will fill them for only $80. This offers a saving even though it costs us a little more to fill them between batches. We have been very pleased with the uptake of this offer.
We are making every effort to reduce our impact. We do very small batches of stock reducing waste and large wholesale orders are made-to-order resulting in minimal to no waste stock.
We're open to ideas and feedback so feel free to send us an email if you feel there's something more we can do.
