Just one more thing... *We aim to meet these delivery times but during busy periods (including sale) deliveries may take a little longer. Occasionally tech updates to our systems or force majeure events, such as extreme weather conditions, will mean that these delivery services aren’t available, or that order cut-off times need amending and/or delivery times need to be extended. However, we will always work hard to keep these temporary changes to a minimum. MREP cannot be held liable for any parcels that are lost or stolen as a result of any specific delivery instructions left for the carrier.
We can deliver to your permanent residential address or your place of employment. If you want your delivery to reach you at work, you need to be confident that someone will be there to take receipt of the goods as the courier will deliver to the place not the person.
For your security we aren't able to change the address your order is being sent to. Don't worry – if you're not in when a delivery is attempted our carrier will leave a card advising how to arrange a redelivery or where you can pick up your parcel.
There’s no need to worry – you can still place your orders and shop as normal on MREP. We’re taking every measure to ensure that the shopping experience remains unchanged.

You’ll be able to see the most up-to-date cut-off times when you reach checkout, and we’re always reviewing our propositions to make sure we’re offering the best services.
We've invested a huge amount of time and resources into making sure our current packaging is as sustainable and environmentally friendly as it can be. Whether it's the pros and cons of compostable packaging vs biodegradable, or working out ways to extend the life of our mailbags, we're on it.
We believe our current packaging set-up is the most sustainable we can achieve right now. We've done loads of research on this, and we're confident about the choices we've made - but we're always looking at ways we can improve, and we'll be updating these pages to keep you up-to-date with our progress.
Take a look at the rest of our FAQ's on this topic to read more about the decisions we've made, and drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions.
There are a few differences, but first it helps to explain the different types of biodegradable packaging, which can be either plant-based or oil-based.
Oil-based biodegradable packaging
Made in the same way as plastic, with additional chemicals added to make it degrade when it's exposed to the right conditions.
It breaks down into small plastic fragments (microplastics) at the end of its life and can't naturally return to the environment.
It cannot be recycled with mainstream plastics due to the chemicals that have been added. Closer to non-recyclable plastic packaging than compostable packaging.
Plant-based biodegradable packaging
Similar to compostable packaging, and the only big difference is the time it takes for the packaging to break down. Certified compostable packaging breaks down in about six months, while biodegradable packaging takes longer, typically well over a year.
We've looked into this, and as biodegradable packaging presents similar issues to compostable packaging, we don't think we'd see any environmental benefits from switching over. Biodegradable packaging requires sunlight and oxygen in order to safely break down - and, as neither of these are present in landfills, there's no guarantee that 'biodegradable' packaging will actually biodegrade. Like compostable packaging, it's not recyclable, either.
We're keeping our eyes peeled for any developments in this area, but at the moment it's not a solution, as we can't guarantee it won't cause environmental damage at the end of its life.
We know plastic isn't perfect though, so our plan is to increase the amount of recycled content in our plastic packaging (currently at 25%) and switch to widely recyclable plastics. We're also working on ways we can move away from single-use plastic. You can even send your packaging back to us and we'll recycle it for you - either by reusing it, or turning it into new 25%-recycled MREP bags.
The easiest way is to send your packaging back to us with your next return.
Even though our packaging is 100% recyclable (and made using 25% recycled content), we know that not all local recycling facilities accept every type of plastic packaging. So you're welcome to send any used packaging back to us when you next have stuff to return - and we'll sort out the rest. What's more, you'll be helping us close the loop, turning some of that used plastic back into fresh MREP packaging.
If your local authority will accept it, you can also just pop it in with your usual recycling.
If your order has been sent to you using a trackable service, you can follow its journey to you. You'll receive a shipping confirmation email from our warehouse once your order is on its way; simply click on your tracking link on this email to view the up to date tracking.
