How to feed birds and help save the planet

Thursday, 4th October 2018

If you are looking to feed the birds and help save the planet at the same time then read on!
Here at Haith’s, we’ve always been environmentally conscious and as jaw-dropping programmes such as The Blue Planet help to raise the profile of the devastating effects of Plastic Pollution, it’s encouraged us to scrutinise our processes even more so.

We’ve been tasked with reducing Plastic Pollution and we’ve eagerly accepted the challenge in the form of Haith’s Mission ‘R’.

Haith’s Mission ‘R’ stands for Reduce, Re-use, and Recycle.

What does Mission ‘R’ mean for our customers?
 
  • Reduce - We’ve made some important changes to the way in which we send out your bird seed. Single item orders from 2kg upwards are being delivered in our famous paper bags – no longer encased in a plastic woven sack.  We’ve received some fantastic feedback so far from customers supporting this movement! We’re also planning to send our forthcoming Autumn/Winter catalogue free from an outer plastic sleeve. Customers also have the option to browse through our online catalogue as an alternative from receiving a paper copy in the post.
 
  • Re-use – For customers who have received plastic woven bags in the past, we’re actively encouraging them to re-use them. Some have commented that they find them to be really helpful when it comes to clearing waste in the garden. We’ve also introduced a Jute bag for life to our range of products. It’s made from natural plant fibres which are completely biodegradable, another way to eradicate plastic bags.
   
We’re committed to continuing on with our never-ending mission to support our customers with feeding birds and saving the planet. If you’ve an idea that you’d like to share with us or would like to provide us with any feedback, we’d love to hear from you! Our dedicated email address is feedback@haiths.com

Well done for taking action on plastic, HAITHS! We've only got one Home Planet. It urgently needs us to clean up our rubbish and make it beautiful and viable once more . Please keep up your good work and we shall do ours.

I'm really pleased that you are doing what you can for the environment and making it very obvious to the public. Its vital that we do more for the environment than feed birds. I look forward to understanding hearing about any further steps that you are able to take.

Pleased to hear that you shred boxes and use them as packaging.
We need more companies like you.

Haith's customer services:

Dear Valerie,
Many thanks for your kind comments and we're delighted you enjoyed reading out blog piece. Recycling the boxes for packaging is great for providing another use for them. We're continuously looking for ways in which we can reuse anything especially plastic.
All the best,
