Sending your love ones an environmentally-friendly care package

In these incredibly uncertain and difficult times, we are unable to see our friends and family. This can be tough and though most of us are lucky enough to have laptops and smartphones to communicate with, some people don’t, and sometimes, you want to do a little bit more.

If you have elderly relatives or those who are classes as vulnerable, you may be thinking about sending them a care package, or a homemade gift to cheer them up. In this technological age, there’s something extra special about receiving a handwritten card or a thoughtful gift through the post.

However, now we’re unable to travel to the shops, we have to rely on online shopping or sending things through the post – which means a lot of packaging, which can be bad for the environment. Lil Packaging is a company that wants to change the packaging game. With more of us looking to take action against single-use plastics, they know that change is required, which is why they specialise in alternative packaging.

Some well-known companies are already using Lil Packaging, such as Boots, Hotel Chocolat and Amazon. You can buy the packaging yourself – though you’ll have to buy a set at a time, ideal if you want to send a few packages or have things to sell yourself. Lil Packaging is a family-run British packaging manufacturer, so ideal for supporting a small business in these times. The packaging is recyclable (where possible), plastic free, sustainably sourced, has a low carbon footprint and is the greenest brand of packaging on the market.

What could you send to a loved one today?
