Packaging: All of our socks are bag free and the left and right feet held together with a recyclable card tag. Tights are packed in polythene or biodegradable corn starch bags for hygiene reasons. Bundles of socks may be packaged in polythene (and where this is the case the polythene is made from 100% recycled material and fully recyclable). Our gift boxes are cardboard and designed to be reused for personal storage or can be recycled in household waste. Our mailing bags are polythene and come with a spare sticky strip so can be reused for returns or another second mailing use. Polythene should be disposed in normal waste and many authorities will incinerate to produce energy. The polythene we use is biodegradable having an additive to accelerate its degradation were the mailing bag not to be incinerated, and in the unlikely event of their being disposed of to landfill are designed to degrade with a period of a 3 months to 3 years.

We're not environmental experts by any means but nor are we oblivious to the environmental impact of the products we sell and associated impacts of everything we do including the use of packaging. We use polythene for our mailing bags for multiple reasons. Primarily it's the only packaging material that is waterproof, suitable for the products we sell and economically viable. It also takes up minimal space which reduces fuel and carbon costs in transportation. We use a range of bag sizes to pick the smallest bag possible for each delivery. The flexibility and waterproofing of our mailing bags makes a first time delivery more likely which is better for customer service and eradicates the fuel and carbon cost of a second delivery attempt. Our mailing bags can be reused once if required. Even were other materials such as paper or card suitable and affordable their overall environmental impact may not be lower.
