We want to share with you what we are doing to help protect and preserve our environment for future generations. We are here to do better for the land we are privileged enough to work on.
When Middlehurst Delivered came about we as a family had a few non-negotiables, these were things that we just were not prepared to move on. They were to be the foundations of the brand we are today. We want to make sure that we are doing our part to protect and enhance our environment. Below we will share with you what we are currently doing. We will continue to explore all the areas in which we can improve.
- We will where possible use home compostable packaging. Currently we are unable to use home compostable packaging on cuts of meat that have bones in them (french rack, roast etc). This is because there is a chance that the bone may pierce the plastic in transit or when in your fridge or freezer. Not to worry though, we are working with our supplier to get a solution as soon as possible! This should be rolled out early 2021.
- We will use woolcool as our solution for keeping all your products cool in transit! This is sooo much kinder on our environment, the added bonus is that the wool cool has so many fabulous uses for you at home, or you can pop it straight into your home compost system.
- The Ice-packs that we use are fully reusable, if however, you have no purpose for them (because let's be honest we only need so many ice-pax) you can collect them up and when you have 20, we will get our courier arranged to collect them and they will come back to us to be used again.
- The cardboard boxes are fully recyclable, they can go in your curbside recycling or again you can collect them up and once you have 5 we will arrange for our courier to collect them and they will come back to us to be used again. You will be pleased to know that the tape we use to seal up the goodness in the boxes is also environmentally friendly!
At Middlehurst Delivered we believe that we need to be constantly reviewing what we do and how we can do it better, especially when it comes to effecting our environment. If you have any thoughts or suggestions, please get in touch, we would love to chat.
