The Framework About

Widely Recyclable Packaging

This product's packaging is kerbside collected and can be broken down into raw materials and repurposed so it can be used again. It may include up to 1% of non-recyclable components that won't impede the overall recyclability. This does not guarantee that it will be recycled – always check locally.
