At Il Fiorello, we’re big on sustainability.
We’re big on maintaining our farm’s organic certification.
We’re big on quality.
We’re big on reusing, recycling, upcycling, and composting, but we are also big users of bubble wrap…which is more than a little contradictory to our focus on sustainability.
It has been a source of considerable frustration to us, but better bubble wrap than damaged products being sent to you, our loyal customers. But, we’ve been searching for a better way.
Fortunately, the packaging industry is evolving, and our search for a more sustainable, earth-friendly replacement for bubble wrap is at an end! We just finished undergoing a packaging trial of a material that will provide us with an elegant solution to our overuse of plastic. Beginning with the May Grove Club shipments, we will replace our bubble wrap usage with a recyclable, compostable cardboard doohickey from a company called Expandos. Use it in your gardens…send us pictures!!
