Murphy has a passion for improving life through better design. This includes reducing the footprint our lifestyle has on the environment. This philosophy is carried through the design and manufacture of the products including packaging, choosing to focus on the use of reusable and sustainable materials.
Caloray is committed to improving society through sustainable living, knowing what we do and how we do it, can change the effect on the environment.
Styrofoam is not a good product for our environment. This product breaks downs easily into small pieces that is then blown by the wind into our lakes, rivers and oceans. It is then mistaken as food by animals. It then ends up in the food chain.
As part of our commitment to continually improving, we have evaluated the use and what we can do to improve our packaging to ensure that the environment is impacted less while still serving its purpose of protecting the products. So we have designed our packaging to not include styrofoam.
With less than 10kg of styrofoam left in our inventory, and the new designed packaging, we are committed to not using it in the future.
We hope you support us in our endeavour to reduce the impact we have on our natural resources and improve the way we live in it.
