​Plastic Free July Campaign

​Plastic Free July Campaign

Posted by The Wares Team on 1st Jul 2024

At Wares of Knutsford, we know that our customers are determined to be as sustainable and eco-friendly as they can in their homes and everyday lives. And that's why we work hard to source the best eco friendly products possible, whether that's plastic free wrap, glass jars and glass bottles or biodegradable and earth friendly food takeaway packaging. After all, everything we do collectively has the power to deliver real change at the point when the world needs it most.

So with that in mind, we are really excited to be supporting the Plastic Free July Campaign and celebrating a month where we aim to jettison earth-damaging plastic altogether.

What is Plastic Free July?

As the campaign name suggests, Plastic Free July is a global movement and a month of opportunity to embrace more sustainable solutions in our everyday lives, whether through conscious buying or adopting the 'reuse, reduce and recycle' mantra. As a global movement, Plastic Free July is a way to build awareness and momentum towards a cleaner future, harnessing collective action for bigger results. There is a website packed with information to get you started and excited about the potential of your input:

How Wares of Knutsford is Supporting Plastic Free July

We already work hard to offer a range of fantastic plastic-free and earth friendly products to help our customers enjoy more sustainable lives. Some of our most popular products include:

Compostable food packaging

Discover a better range of food takeaway packaging with Vegware and BioPak - both available at Wares!

These innovative products provide single-use food service and takeaway packaging that can be composted for a completely cyclical and recyclable system without any waste or pollution. Made entirely from plant fibres, the Vegware and BioPak ranges include paper bags, food carryout bags, sandwich cartons, takeaway boxes and more. You can also bulk buy to save more, making these a great solution for eco friendly businesses that want to go plastic free as part of their commitment to earth friendly business practices. They are also a great choice for event catering.


Eco-friendly, beautiful, versatile, long-lasting and incredibly cost-effective, it's no secret that we're huge fans of glass at Wares of Knutsford. Whether it's glass jars for jam-making and gifting or glass bottles for making cordial and raspberry gin, we sell beautiful glassware for all occasions. We're huge advocates of glass and its benefits, and we sell a large range of glass jars and bottles, from tiny miniatures that are great for party and wedding favours, through to over-size jars for serving punch, making kefir or storing pickles.

We also have fantastic glass bulk buys, which are great for businesses and for event planners, allowing you to save more on unit costs and delivery.

Metal lids

One of the great things about glass jars is that they can be used endlessly with care. For this reason, we also sell replacement metal lids, as well as cork stoppers and multi-use bottle caps. This allows you to use your glass jars and glass bottles in a variety of ways and endlessly, with a good washing and sterilising routine in between. See our range here.


We have a lovely range of traditional wicker baskets, which are fantastic for storage or gifting, especially if you love making up hampers. Wicker storage and presentation boxes are made with rattan, making them 100% natural and eco-friendly. The natural material grows incredibly fast before being dried and woven, and these wickerware items will last for years with the right care, whilst looking absolutely beautiful in your home. These are also great for high-end green businesses who want to package in a more upscale, earth friendly way. See our latest range here.

Eco friendly packaging

We're also committed to taking single-use plastics out of our packaging. Instead of plastic bubbles, we use paper shredding, which can easily be reused, recycled or popped into your composter to add that vital brown waste element. This makes a huge difference at our warehouse and vastly boosts our sustainability as a business - something we're always working hard to optimise. We also sell paper shred for decorative purposes as it looks fantastic and offers that lovely eco-friendly finish that makes a gift even more appealing. See our paper shred and paper and card tags and other decorative items.
