Not what it says on the box (and that’s good!)

When a box bearing this green labelling arrived I wasn’t all that impressed at first…

But looking closer I see that Machine Mart Ltd, where we bought replacement emergency lights for the lodges and cottage, really are reducing their packaging by re-using it.

Instead of sporting company branding, the outer box had orignally held staples.

Inside, instead of polystyrene, there was a mesh-cut cardboard sheet for padding.

So good for them! Simply using less and reusing more should be common, and hopefully commercial, good sense.

And yes, it will go back in the recycling for another round of the system.
