Reusable & Recyclable Product Packaging 

Recycling and eco-responsibility is very important to us at Nurture Botanicals, and we strive to source the most eco-responsible packaging for all our products...

We also love to encourage recycling and now offer a ‘Recycling Rewards Scheme’ to our customers: for each bottle or jar you return to the apothecary you will receive 20p off your next purchase, or you can build up your rewards using your Rewards Scheme Card.

If you’ve forgotten your reusable shopping bag, customers are offered a recyclable paper bag to carry home their Nurture Botanicals goodies; you are also welcome to bring in your own bags and jars to fill with our herbs, spices and tea blends.

Herbal Tea Packaging

Nurture Botanicals herbal teas are now packaged in fully biodegradable pouches.  The bags are made from recycled materials such as paper, transparent cellulose foil and starch, and both the pouch and zip-lock are GMO free and 100% biodegradable in 10 weeks.

Tinctures, Oils and Room Mist Packaging

All Nurture Botanicals tinctures, oils and room mists are packaged in glass bottles to enable recycling. Bottles may be reused at home, returned to the apothecary to be recycled or placed in your glass recycling box.

Creams, Ointments and Loose Incense Packaging

Our creams, ointments and candles are packaged in recyclable glass jars with a lined aluminium lid. Both the jar and lid can be returned to the apothecary for recycling or placed in your glass and metal recycling box.

Online Shop Packaging

All products purchased from the Nurture Botanicals Etsy shop are packaged to post in tissue paper, shredded paper and cardboard, which may be placed in your paper and card recycling box.

Plastic Bottle Caps and Inhalers

Our tinctures and oils currently have plastic caps and dropper inserts which may be recycled at some recycling centres.  At Nurture Botanicals it is our aim to provide more easily recyclable packaging, and with this in mind it is our goal to find an alternative to all plastic packaging and replace our closures with recyclable lined aluminium caps. In place of dropper inserts, customers will be offered a reusable glass and rubber pipette which will fit all our 50ml glass bottles.
