  • Is Flora Plant B+tter packaging recyclable?
    Flora Plant B+tter packaging is made from 100% paper parchment and is completely plastic free. Sadly it’s not yet recyclable because the current UK&I recycling infrastructure doesn’t accept paper products with food residue still remaining on it, so it should be disposed in general waste. It is however 100% biodegradable and we are working hard on composability in the background to ensure we are playing our part in the future of our environment around us.
  • Why is the packaging material wrinkly?

    Flora Plant B+tter is wrapped in parchment paper, a natural packaging material, which is sensitive to humidity.

    The packs must withstand small temperature and humidity fluctuations after production and during distribution, storage and in home-use and since the material is humidity sensitive, wrinkling occurs.
