At Ask Mummy & Daddy, we live to create beautiful gifts – but not at the expense of future generations.

That’s why our bottles, jars and pouches are compostable and our cardboard gift boxes are 100% recyclable. Sweet as a nut.

Here’s more information on our packaging: 

Bottles and jars

All our bottles & jars are PLA plastic. PLA, or polylactic acid, is a material derived from renewable resources like cornstarch or sugar cane, NOT petroleum, and degrades much faster than traditional plastics. It is certified for industrial composting, so pop it in your food or garden waste bin if your local council accepts it. Not suitable for home composting. 

Gift Boxes

Our paper gift boxes are 100% recyclable and can be put directly into the recycling bin at home or at work. 


Our pouches are food-grade biodegradable cellulose. Derived from plant material like renewable wood pulp, these eco-friendly bags can be composted at home or in your council food waste bin.


Reusing is always best for the environment. Why not repurpose our packaging for loose change, buttons or stationery? Give it a go – tag us on social with #AskMummyAndDaddy so we can see your wildest creations!
