Shipping and Handling

Diatomaceous Earth is pre-packaged by us in plastic bags.  It will be shipped in an extra overlay plastic bag for additional protection.  Typically these are more than enough to cope with traditional freight channels under normal circumstances.  If you have a specific requirement or need with freight and handling please let us know.  In the unusual circumstance that your packaging may be ripped or damaged on arrival, please contact us without delay.   We will liaise with our contracted carrier to re-deliver a non-damaged parcel and uplift the damaged item.
