At Lily & Mortimer we wanted to design our products in a way we could eliminate single use packaging. Whilst we do use a biodegradable bag to protect your goregous bedding and nursery items during shipping we recycle these. All Lily and Mortimer products are then delivered to your door in a beautiful organic cotton bags, made from smaller pieces of fabric allowing us to minimise waste during production. I know that you are looking for simple ways of reducing plastic in your homes so here are 10 useful ways customers have given their bags a new life, after unwrapping their new purchase.
#1 Use them at supermarkets to weigh and store fruit and veg, fresh in our breathable cotton bags .
