Ensure environmental factors are considered as a priority within any business decisions

Continually review and improve all stakeholders awareness



We reuse and recycle packaging every day. Where possible all packaging from our suppliers is reused for customers’ orders.

Our own branded shipping boxes are now made from at least 60% recycled material, and they are fully recyclable themselves.

We use biodegradable chips made from cornstarch and brown paper as void fill in our customers’ orders. Simply run the chips under water when you've unpacked your order.

If you receive any bubble wrap or plastic air fill pockets in your delivery, it has come from a delivery made to our warehouse. We prefer to reuse this resource rather than throw it out, hopefully you can find a use for it too.

We currently use paper tape to seal boxes.

The paper your invoice is printed on is recycled paper.

Our range of Own Branded Products are packed in 100% recyclable containers.
The aluminium used in both our shaving cream tubs and aftershave balm bottles is completely recyclable as confirmed by MetalPackagingEurope.Org.
The pump unit used on our aftershave balms is now a mono-material pump which contains no mixed materials. This means it is completely recyclable as confirmed by Bluesky UK Ltd.
Our razors are packaged in cardboard boxes which is made from Agri-waste, an agricultural by product and they are fully recyclable too.

Twice a week bulk paper and cardboard is collected from our warehouse to be recycled back in to packaging.

We recycle single use plastic packaging, bottles and film, through our local recycle centre.



We have carefully chosen our courier partners and all orders shipped to UK addresses are dispatched using environmentally responsible couriers. Royal Mail has the lowest emissions per parcel in the UK and DPD Local offer carbon neutral deliveries.

We are reviewing our international courier partners currently. 


People & Culture

All business stakeholders will be involved in the implementation of this policy, for full commitment and improving standards.

All staff will be provided with relevant environmental training.

We will review our current and future suppliers environmental credentials.

Where possible we will use locally sourced labour and materials to reduce potential emissions and support our local community.

We regularly engage with all business stakeholders to ensure best practice in implementation.

We will continue to engage with all business stakeholders to improve environmental performance.
