Well, plastic is far more energy efficient for a start. To make or even recycle glass, you need to heat it to very high temperatures which increases the carbon footprint. Glass is also impractical and heavy to transport. Our refill pack is light, needs very little material to protect what’s inside and can be delivered through regular post.
It’s far more efficient and environmentally friendly than parcel deliveries or buying your oil from the supermarket. So olive oil in the post is the way forward. We’ve also designed our refill pack so that you can squeeze every last drop of oil into your bottle. Zero waste, maximum taste. Glass bottles leave between 6 and 14% of the product in packaging.
