Drop & Swap or Recycle and then Compost …
If you are local to either our Takanini or Karangahake location then you are welcome to drop and swap. By this we mean you can pop along to our store and drop off your old jar for a new one and receive a small discount for the good deed.
We then sterilise the jar and reuse. If you’re not able to do this, then we have specifically chosen our packaging to be recycled. We use no plastics, only glass and aluminium.
We also only use very simple delivery packaging as we are trying to reduce our footprint. We use recycled kraft paper and ask that you compost your packaging as well as the courier bag that it comes in. If you don’t have a compost bin, then the bags themselves actually make quite a good mulch on their own and suppress weeds in your flower garden.
The Still Room is currently working towards organic certification for both our growing practices as well as our product and packaging processes.
