2. Delivery Policy
2.1 When you use our order process to purchase Products, the appropriate delivery charge (see above) will be added automatically to your order. The delivery charge will be itemised on your order summary and you will be asked to review your order summary before you submit your order.
2.2 Delivery will be completed when we deliver your goods to the address you gave us and your goods will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery.
2.3 All deliveries must be signed for (except items sent by post and which are small enough to be put through your letterbox). Please make sure you keep the receipt enclosed with your goods.
2.4 The contents of your order and your delivery postcode area will determine which delivery services you will be offered. We do not deliver to Post Office (P.O.) boxes or shipping agent addresses. We will select the most appropriate carrier for your goods. This means your delivery may arrive in more than one batch to ensure your order is transported by the most appropriate means.
2.5 All delivery timescales are subject to product and delivery slot availability. Whilst every reasonable effort shall be made to keep to any delivery date or time and delivery shall not be of the essence and we shall not be liable for any losses, costs, damages or expenses incurred by you or any other person or company arising directly or indirectly out of any failure to meet any estimated delivery date.
2.6 Deliveries are made on weekdays between the hours of 09.00 and 16.00 but we are unable to confirm a specific time. If our original attempt to deliver is not successful, a card will be left at your address allowing you to contact the delivery service and arrange a second delivery. If a second attempt to deliver is not successful and delivery cannot be made within 3 days then the Product will be returned to us. All returned orders will be refunded via the method of payment; you will incur a £9.20 charge for the attempted deliveries. If you wish for your order to be redelivered to the original shipping address, once it has been returned to us, you agree to assume all costs for redelivery. This clause does not apply to deliveries sent by post.
2.7 Your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount and you will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. The delivery of your goods might be delayed pending payment of these charges. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
2.8 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.

The world is being overwhelmed by the burden of plastic pollution, with tens of millions of tons of plastic finding their way into Earth's oceans each year. Plastics introduced into ocean can stay for hundreds to thousands of years, undergoing
fragmentation in the process and giving rise to the creation of microplastics. Plastics were designed to be strong and durable, so it’s not surprising it is one of the most persistent pollutants on Earth. Something as small as a plastic bottle can take more than 400 years to break down. In the UK for example, 38.5m plastic bottles are used every day – only just over half make it to recycling, while more than 16m are put into landfill, burnt or leak into the environment and oceans each day. Let’s face the truth about the global surge in plastic pollution; it primarily stems from human activities.
The world is currently grappling with a severe plastic pollution crisis, as millions of tons of plastic make their way into Earth's
oceans every year. Once introduced into the ocean, plastics can persist for hundreds to even thousands of years, undergoing gradual fragmentation and ultimately producing microplastics. This enduring presence is unsurprising, given that plastics were originally designed for their strength and durability. Even something as small as a plastic bottle can take more than 400 years to fully decompose.
To illustrate the scale of the issue, consider the example of the UK, where a staggering 38.5 million plastic bottles are used daily. Unfortunately, only slightly over half of these bottles are directed towards recycling, while more than 16 million are either disposed of in landfills, incinerated, or end up leaking into the environment and oceans on a daily basis.
It's imperative that we confront the undeniable truth about the global surge in plastic pollution: it primarily arises from human
activities. Reducing plastic bottle pollution in the oceans is an important environmental goal that requires individual and collective efforts.
Here are some actions you can take to help mitigate this issue:
Stop using disposable plastics
Ninety percent of the plastic items in our daily lives are
used once and then chucked: grocery bags, plastic wrap, disposable cutlery, straws, coffee-cup lids. Take note of how often you rely on these products and replace them with reusable versions.
Stop buying water
Each year, close to 20 billion plastic bottles are tossed in the trash. Carry a reusable bottle in your bag, and you’ll never be caught having to resort to a Volvic or Evian again. If you’re nervous about the quality of your local tap water, look for a model with a built-in filter.
Educate yourself and others
Educate yourself and others about the environmental impact of disposable plastics. Understand how they contribute to pollution, harm wildlife, and contribute to climate change. Knowing the problem is the first step to finding a solution.
