At Fruitful Office we are committed

to continuously improving our environmental credentials as we grow
ECO-BASKET fruit delivery service
  • Over 99% of our fruit basket is biodegradable or recyclable, and we are working on the remaining 1%:
    • Fresh fruit - eaten!
    • Wicker basket - re-used for as long as possible
    • Bio-degradable transparent wrap to protect the basket
    • Bio-degradable basket tag - rotated if clean
    • Bio-degradable paper lining
  • Eco-friendly rotation of baskets: On each delivery day we deliver FULL baskets and collect the EMPTY baskets to re-use them. This avoids packaging wastage with each delivery
  • Eco-Route Delivery (ERD) system: We operate an eco-friendly delivery route system that focuses on minimizing the duplication of van routes.  Together with Ripple Africa (a charity) we are carrying out an ongoing fruit tree planting programme: Every Fruit Basket we deliver to our clients – we plant 1 fruit tree
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

We are proud to run a fruit tree-planting campaign: for every Fruit Basket you order - we plant a fruit tree. This helps to mitigate the effects of global warming, deforestation and provides an income support to local communities in Malawi, Africa. Every 3 months we send our clients an update of how many trees their team has planted.

Many of our clients consider this a welcome addition to their CSR strategy.

Supporting our Local COMMUNITY

Our strict quality check processes result in us rejecting a certain amount of fruit every week, which is in turn, repackaged and provided to local charities.

There is nothing wrong with much of the fruit that doesn't make it into our baskets, however it reinforces the lengths that we go to ensure we deliver a high-quality product every day.

FRUIT sourcing
  • We source approximately 70% of our fruit from Ireland and Western Europe to support local farmers and minimize fuel emissions from long-haul transportation. Please remember that certain fruits such as bananas cannot grow in Europe
  • We never buy air-freighted produce
Warehouse and Office Policy
  • When we buy our fresh fruit, it arrives packaged in cardboard boxes on pallets. We recycle all these cardboard boxes and the pallets meaning that they do not end up in landfill sites
  • Minimising paper print-outs at Fruitful Office! This includes sending out our monthly invoices to our clients electronically in pdf. format
