1.3 Delivery of Maxomorra items to US and Canada
From the 1st July 2021, we are very sadly, no longer able to ship any Maxomorra items to the US or Canada. This includes any third party Courier services such as The Post Lady. This is due to labelling and product safety regulations.
Further information is available on the Maxomorra Website.
Being Eco and Ethical is always important to us and we will continue to use biodegradable mailing bags, recyclable content mailing bags and recycle mailing bags (and boxes) and encourage all our customers to recycle their mailing bags.
We will wrap items in acid free tissue paper or an alternative recycled paper product.
We currently avoid printed material for address labels as all our address labels are handwritten on recycled paper as we don’t believe in toner cartridges. This may be subject to change due to Brexit.
Please contact us at email@example.com for further information.
