Organic, Plastic-Free Fruit & Veg

Why choose organic, plastic-free fruit and veg this New Year?


We know not everyone’s New Year’s resolutions will be focussed on food. Whilst many may take the opportunity to move towards a healthier lifestyle where diet is concerned, there’s a whole load of resolutions that look at the bigger picture. One example may be to reduce carbon footprint, helping to better the environment by cutting out single-use plastic, reducing individual fuel consumption or supporting organic, regenerative food production. One way to combine the common New Year’s resolutions of a healthy lifestyle and becoming more environmentally conscious is to choose plastic free, organic fruit and veg…


Why Choose Organic Fruit & Veg?

Not only is consuming more fruit and veg a good step in living a healthier lifestyle already, but choosing organic fruit and vegetables is even better. Organic vegetables and fruits are grown in a completely natural way, avoiding the use of artificial fertilisers, pesticides and herbicides. This means you’re exposing yourself to less chemicals, whilst also enjoying organic veg that is brimming with natural vitamins, minerals and flavour.


On the Soil and Sea Farm, we also carefully compost any wastage fruit and vegetables in our on-site Market Garden. This ensures we naturally keep our soils fertile by returning the nutrients from the fruit and veg to the soil. In turn, this naturally nutritious soil produces organic veg and fruit that is bursting with nutrients, as our closed loop sustainability circle continues. Organic fruit and vegetables are also known for being that much tastier due to its natural growth. Sounds like a win, win to us.

Our Plastic-Free Picks

At Soil and Sea, we’re proud of our wide range of organic fruit and veg, which is almost completely plastic free. Whilst there is always room for improvement, we do understand that some fruit and vegetables need plastic to keep it as fresh and damage-free as possible. With this in mind, we continue to use as little plastic as possible whilst we seek better ways to keep our leafy greens and softer items safe. If you’re looking to avoid the plastic this New Year, we’d recommend staying away from our leafy greens (Salad Leaves, Chard, Spinach, Kale), Sky Sprouts and Cherry Tomatoes. Our organic Blueberries also come in plastic packaging, however this is biodegradable – something we’re looking into expanding to the rest of our plastic products in the future.


Other than these organic fruit and vegetables, the rest of our selection is completely plastic free. Our most popular plastic free veg and fruit includes organic Broccoli, Organic Carrots, organic White Potatoes, organic Mushrooms, organic Avocados, organic Oranges, organic Apples and organic Bananas.
