Visit Our Shop

Our vision is to be more than just a normal business! We want to genuinely give environmental, social and economic concerns equal consideration.

Sustainability runs through all we do and we aim to treat people how we want to be treated. We believe this is fundamental to the success of our business.

Products & Services

We supply sustainable food and drinks packaging, as well as eco-friendly cleaning products.

Food packaging:
Our Sustain™ packaging is made using only… renewable resources (i.e. ones that won’t run out. We use plants!). It’s also 100% compostable so after use, have it collected with your food waste to be turned into compost!

Our Revive™ packaging is made using recycled materials (such as recycled plastic, made from the old water and fizzy drinks bottles we’ve thrown away). It’s also widely recyclable so after use, have it collected with your paper and plastics for recycling!

Bespoke packaging service:
You can bespoke print our packaging to add your own logo and design – or even create your own bespoke packaging from scratch!

Eco cleaning:
New for 2015, we have an eco cleaning range called zeco™. Environmentally-accredited zeco™ uses biological actives, such as the good bacteria found in nature, to eat away at dirt.

Closed loop service:
We offer a closed loop service to help ensure your waste is composted or recycled. Our biggest closed loop project to date was the London 2012 Olympic Games. As well as supplying 120 million pieces of packaging, we helped recycle and compost it all after use; diverting 6,330 tonnes of waste from landfill.

Ethical Trade

London Bio Packaging is committed to ethical, compassionate trade and to the sustainability of our suppliers. Our Ethical Trade Policy forms part… of our supplier minimum standards and we are proud to say that any products we sell have been made in line with this policy.

To ensure our suppliers operate responsibly and with transparency, we require them to work towards becoming a member of the Supplier Ethical Database Exchange (SEDEX). In addition, we ask all suppliers for a Sedex Member Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA) to be carried out by an independent party, to ensure that they comply with the Ethical Trade Initiative (ETI) base code.

The ETI base code sets out ethical practices around the treatment of workers. It is founded on the conventions of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and is an internationally recognised code of labour practice.

For details please see www.ethicaltrade.org/eti-base-code.

London Bio Packaging and its chosen auditing bodies work to help suppliers:

  • Monitor conditions of our factories/ suppliers
  • Ensure compliance with the laws and union agreements of the country
  • Ensure compliance with education; maternity; health and safety; housing and basic rights.

When you buy packaging from London Bio Packaging you are contributing towards ethical trade.
