Hey there Daniel,
Thanks for the review - you're doing our Everyday Long Boxers justice!
Our roots are in physical stores (we were in over 1,000 retail stores before we even had a website!) and with this, the presentation of our products (and they're durability) has been important hence the tiny amount of film being used.
We have contacted third parties this and we can share that "All recycling is soaked in water and broken down into pulp so the constituent fibres can be reused. Any tape will come away from the slurry and can then be removed by the machinery, whether it’s pulled out or skimmed off the top." We are confident this happens and the majority of the boxes are being recycled successfully :)
We're always looking at innovative ways we can only increase the level of eco with our products so do rest assured that this isn't the end solution! Thanks again and if we can assist any further please reach out.
