"Hou says no to single use plastic!?"
Hou Canoes has yet again been listening to you, its customers, and is pleased to announce that we are no longer packaging our canoes in plastic packaging as standard.
We believe that we are once again this is a ‘first’ for a UK canoe manufacturer to take this step and no longer use plastic packaging as a matter of course. Justin Snell, founder of Hou Canoes says;
“Since all of our UK dispatches are delivered by traditional canoe trailer/racking style transport there is in fact little need for the plastic packaging. If of course a customer does want his canoe to be wrapped in plastic for delivery we can still do this but from our research the majority of our customers do not wish to see the boat arrive wrapped in plastic”
Hou Canoes estimate that they will save at least 3 tons of single use plastic over the next year alone.
Now that’s got to be good for the environment!
