Eco jam

Photo from Naturgie

For 20 years Naturgie have been selling products made by small Fairtrade and organic producers. The new range Eco Attitudes are also eco-friendly, designed to minimise impact on the environment.

  • The jams, chutneys and preserves are vacuum cooked at low temperatures which preserves their flavour, and uses less energy.
  • The jars are 70% recycled glass and 10% lighter than the normal jam jar, so reducing the energy used in transportation.
  • The labels are made from recycled paper.
  • They are printed with water-based inks without chemical solvents.
  • The lid uses 50% less steel than conventional lids.

They cost a little more than many of the jams available, but isn't it worth it when you consider the benefits?


  1. Oh, definitely!!! there are some things one can get in the cheap version, but not what is going to hit your taste buds!!
    PS: we had cloudy skies this week and a few drops...but that's it. We are hoping for some "real rain" as of Sunday. We.can't.wait!!

  2. Agreed Mar, you don't want to economise where your tastebuds are concerned :)

    And we're still waiting for rain too.

  3. Should have been more food products in the world like that!

    Wishing you a great weekend :-)


Forethoughts, afterthoughts, any thoughts. Tell me.
