We take sustainability seriously at Shelter and have been exploring ways we can become more environmentally conscious with our packaging.

Currently our emergency chocolate packaging is fully recyclable and also has compostable foil. Our Christmas cards are made from FSC certified responsible sources.

Our new goods orders are currently sent in a non-recyclable Jiffy bag, however we want to encourage our supporters to reuse the packaging your items arrive in. You can even take advantage of our pack and post service and send any unwanted items back to us as donations free of charge.

Please follow this link for more information and a freepost label.

We're always looking at ways we can improve our approach towards sustainability, and we'll be updating these pages to keep you up-to-date with our progress. If you have any queries or suggestions around this then we’d love to hear these.
