Returning boxes and recycling packaging

In everything we do here at Good Harvest, we are always considering our environmental footprint, and taking action to reduce our impact. 

Of course, we know that this is important to you too.

That's why we ask that you always return the boxes by placing them at the front door or in a visible location for us to re-use. This is especially important for Styrofoam boxes which we must re-use to ensure they don't end up in landfill. 

Our preference is to not use the styrofoam boxes at all however we are yet to find the right box size and capacity to meet the burgeoning needs of the extra large farm box. 

In many cases the boxes we are using are bulging at the seams with veggies, so sometimes we will even increase the box size to make sure your produce is packed and delivered safely and ensuring quality.  

Many of you also return the egg cartons. Thank you for being thoughtful. Whilst we can't re-use these due to food safety, we do recycle them for you. In fact, did you know they are made of 100% recycled bottles too! we are working with our farmer to make sure that these are the best solution, and if we can transition to a more sustainable carton, however in the interim please recycle!!
