2 x 5L Salad Boxes. Without these, you unfortunately won't be able to buy salad from us. The details of the deposit return are copied below (You should have all had these in your emails on Tuesday).
Amethi Veg - Deposit Return System info
This year the boxes will be single-use plastic free! If you don’t have a set of boxes, you won’t be able to buy any salads, so get your deposits down via the online shop ASAP.
First off, the boxes are effectively yours. They’re yours to look after and keep clean. They will have your name on and will only be reissued to you and you alone.
For now the deposit will be for 2 x 10L salad boxes which each hold 3-4 portions of salad (they take up a shelf in the fridge, so you might need to decant into your own smaller packaging at home – just make sure it’s an air tight container. I was considering including supermarket style plastic crates as well, but for now I’m going to use cardboard boxes, these are able to be used multiple times and although I’m not asking for a deposit for them in particular, please please return them to save on waste.
It’ll be a pretty simple system, whereby I’ll drop off the produce you have ordered one week (cardboard box plus salad box) and pick up the boxes you had the week before at the same time. This will continue until the end of the season, at which point you’ll get your deposit back if everything is in order.
The deposit is £10. £5/box.
You are responsible for the cleanliness of your boxes whilst they are in your care. I won’t be washing or sanitizing anyone’s salad boxes after use. They’re dishwasher safe so feel free to simply pass them through the dishwasher as you would other Tupperware style boxes.
The Cardboard boxes obviously can’t be washed, so please try and keep them clean and dry for the next pick up. I think that’s everything! If anyone has any questions, feel free to fire away via email or social channels.
