Our motivations

We all know that our global use of resources is damaging and wasteful. We decided to do something about it by offering reusable, recyclable and biodegradable alternatives to single use plastic. We want our products to inspire more sustainable ways of living and change patterns of behaviour. We like to source as locally, sustainably and ethically as we can, always considering the circular nature of the resources we are using.
Mark, our founder has been sourcing and supplying aluminium containers from his barn in Berkshire since 2004 and he is passionate about their sustainability credentials. After seeing the groundswell in awareness of plastic pollution, he felt it was the right time to offer his recycled and fully recyclable aluminium range directly to customers for the first time.


Our team

We care about who makes, packages and processes your orders - we like to source locally to our barn 'warehouse', either within the UK or Europe and to build sustainable relationships with our suppliers.  We make environmentally-conscious choices on your behalf - all our packaging is biodegradable or recyclable, down to the tape!
We're a small business, based in Newbury, England and our employees live locally, many have been working for us for over ten years. The happiness of our employees is incredibly important to us. They are paid the Living Wage or above. We don’t believe in zero hour contracts. Inside the box that your order ships in is the first name of the Pød employee that picked, packed and processed your order.
