Shipping and Delivery Sections

Sustainable Packaging

We are very proud of our shipping efforts to be as sustainable as possible.

Cardboard Boxes

We reuse, recycle and repurpose cardboard boxes that we source locally.

When smaller used boxes are not available we source new boxes made from 100% recycled paper and cardboard.

Protective Packaging and filling

Where protective packaging, void filling and cushioning is required we reuse, recycle and repurpose suppliers own protective packaging.

When more protective packaging is required we shred old boxes and scrap paper.

We believe in reusing, recycling and repurposing over using new and aesthetically pleasing protective fillings unless it is absolutely necessary.

Paid Delivery Services

These options will appear once your shipping and delivery address is completed on the check-out page. Shipping price is dependant on weight and size of the items in your basket and is calculated by connecting to Australia Post systems.
