Reducing waste, one box at a time

In 2019 we celebrated our 30th anniversary which gave us a great opportunity to look at what we have done well in the past but also what we can improve on in the future, including how can become more sustainable as a company.

We are therefore delighted to announce that we are scrapping non-recyclable polystyrene boxes for sample deliveries, to be replaced by fully recyclable cardboard boxes lined with wool-cool.

We send well over 1,000 samples every year, so ensuring deliveries arrive in the best possible condition is a key priority. The wool-cool will make sure our samples always arrive frozen, eliminating the need to re-send and therefore, helping us to significantly reduce our carbon footprint.

Not only has the change in packaging been beneficial for the environment, it has also given us the freedom to print our brand on sample boxes, helping our customers to easily identify samples.

Our sustainability mission doesn’t end here! Many more positive changes are in the works to help Meadow Vale reduce its impact on the environment.

Stay tuned to our social channels and website to see changes taking place throughout this year and beyond.
