Plastic Free Champion - Jazzman Records Ltd

Well done to our latest Plastic Free Champion, Jazzman Records Ltd. Jazzman Records is an online music retailer and record label run by Gerald Short. Gerald achieved this award by;

  • Stopping using shrink wrap on Jazzman LPs

  • Switching from plastic brown tape to paper brown tape in packaging

  • In terms of the rest of the packaging for sending out products to customers, Gerald only buys in cardboard packaging and reuses any incoming packaging such as bubble wrap or noodles, so no plastic packaging is ever bought.

Gerald lives in Watlington and has an office and warehouse in Henley. He said, “It’s become the norm to shrink-wrap everything, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Removing shrink wrap is not only good for the environment, it reduces cost too. We haven’t had any problems as a result of removing shrink wrap from our LPs and I think our customers approve of this too.” Jazzman Records sells and reissues old soul, funk, jazz, and disco, as well as oddball and new music, and accessories for music lovers such as record boxes. This award shows that the Plastic Free Champion award is not just for shops! All kinds of businesses can reduce their single-use plastic and qualify for this award.
