Why is being eco friendly important to us?

  Just because it's recycled it doesn't mean second best  

As most of you know by now, creating and sustaining an eco-friendly environment is imperative in modern day living. 

Here at Cakey Love, we use quality, easily recyclable packaging to encourage this dynamic. Our boxes are made out of structured cardboard and the ‘plastic’ you may come across is bio plastic, made from cornstarch. The jars, the paper, the wax paper - you name it, it’s eco-friendly and ready to be recycled! We want to help maintain sustainability as a part of everyday life. 

Cakey Love also insists on preparing seasonal produce, with a monthly changing cake in the Original Box. This means seasonal produce can really be put to good use as it should be, and if you order multiple times you'll get to taste a little bit more of Cakey creations each time.

It's all about simple living, reducing our waste and plastic consumption and in the meantime enjoying a little cake.

We are often asked why we chose to bind afternoon tea and eco-friendliness together. And the answer? Well after living healthy, sustainable lives, we just couldn’t possibly not. Living by the sea and taking an interest in plastic-free products provoked us to delve further in how you can fully package a product without using plastic. So, here it is.

Our boxes were personalised with the environment in mind. All components are recyclable and we even offer a free Recycled Love Scheme. Click the image to explore more.
