Here at the Woolly Pig HQ, we ensure all our packing is made from fully sustainable and recyclable materials. In order to maintain the products at the correct temperature during the delivery, the packaging uses 100% felted sheep’s wool which is washed in a natural process, scoured then sealed within recyclable industry grade micro-perforated polyethylene wrap. This high performance thermal insulated packaging is designed specifically for direct deliveries of chilled and frozen food and has been rigorously tested and proven to keep produce within the temperature ranges required by the FSA. 
What happens once the packaging has completed it's purpose? Well in theory, the packaging does not have to be single use. The strong cardboard box can be re-used time and time again, or can simply be recycled in your usual roadside collection along with the polyethylene bag the wool is packaged in. With the wool, the ideas are endless.
We encourage our customers to be as creative as we are, and come up with as many uses for the wool as possible. Woolcool have created a great social media trend #LetsBoxClever we would love everyone to jump on board that hashtag to share your amazing ideas with the world. Together with Woolcool, we aim to go the extra mile to ensure our packaging, although sustainable, does not have a single use.
