Bullards has launched its letterbox friendly Eco Pouch refills for contactless at home gin deliveries as they work towards reducing their carbon emissions and becoming plastic free by 2023.
The pouch is super light weight and made from part recycled food grade plastic and part new food grade plastic. It’s 100% recyclable and letterbox friendly meaning that the flat pack gin can be delivered by Royal Mail staff on their usual rounds and contact free.
There is a freepost label attached to the back of the Eco Pouch and Bullards ask that all empty pouches get posted back to them via any Royal Mail post box (no stamp or envelope required) so that they can then ensure all empty pouches are sent to Terracycle UK to be upcycled.
Gin production has currently stopped at the Bullards distillery as they are making hand sanitiser instead.
