With each order we send out, we try and modify our box design to use less parcel and clear packing tape and more interlocking flaps and tabs. Our latest order was posted today and the packaging is looking really neat.

Our cardboard is reclaimed from our local shops and we cut, fold and glue what is collected to the correct size. Nic ensures that the flaps have tabs that fit into slots that hold the box shut with some gummed paper tap from Hobby Craft to prevent them slipping out.

Our first attempts at packing the orders did involve quite a lot of sticky-back plastic tape. Hopefully the Hobby Craft tape is more paper and zero plastic but it may have polymer fibres that strengthen it. If you know how it is made, we’d love to hear from you.

Otherwise, another lovely reclaimed product in the post and hopefully one more happy customer.
