Love the Bombay Mix – Recycle the packaging

Submitted by on May 13, 2010 – 1:16 pm53 Comments

REH-196_22At the beginning of April Suma launched its groundbreaking new packaging film – which contains recycled PET plastic and is also recyclable.   Suma has been able to package LOADS of different food stuffs in this material from dried beans, rice and sugar to dried fruit, nuts and yoghurt peanuts.  These products are creating a demand for recycled plastic as well as being recycleable.  Now its easier to do the green thing.

 Have you heard it crinkle yet?

If you’ve not got your hands on one of our new packets yet we are offering you the  opportunity to try a bag for free.  We’re giving away a bag of Suma Organic Bombay Mix 125g (suitable for vegans but contains nuts) to the first 50 people (before 30th May 2010) who leave us a comment below. 

Needless  to say, what’s inside the bag is just as important as the bag itself and we’re sure you’ll enjoy trying this and other quality products from Suma’s organic, wholefood and Fairtrade ranges of  foods. 

So,  please tell us how important recycled and recyclable packaging is to you when you buy food and also what you think to recycling schemes in your area – is it easy get your PET plastic recycled or not.   We’re looking forward to hearing from you.

    I really hope that more people follow your example. I have copied your article ‘Let’s get the UK recycling’ & suggested letter and put it on our Conservation Noticeboard at our campsite. {It might be an idea to check spelling/grammar in this however, as there are a couple of mistakes!]

    Locally we have a big difference between our domestic [Rutland] which has really improved and our business which, has deteriorated and, I am not convinced are doing as much as they could!

    Suma Bombay Mix is one of the best I have found. How good it is that it is also packaged so thoughtfully for the environment. Keep it up Suma.

    Love this article!
    I am about to do my latest mail out to the marketing/packaging design departments at the supermarkets who insist on wrapping food for the shelf & ambient chillers in non-recyclable packaging.

    I send them a card asking them to consider how they can improve their packaging in terms of being more eco.

    Plus send them back the non-recyclable plastic wrapping I don’t want to put into landfill

    My hope is that it crystallises the mind…

    Thanks for showing you don’t have to be a multi national corporation to keep it real and conscious!
