At Laura Thomas Co we aim to dispatch all online orders within 48 hours from receiving the order confirmation. For delivery + returns policies, and procedures see below.

In the unusual event that this is not possible, a member of our team will notify via email (to the email given at checkout) in order to inform you of the situation.

All parcels will be shipped in recyclable boxes or bags and use a compostable corn starch void filling. The eco chips used in our packaging can be composted or placed in garden waste disposal.  We may at times re-use non-recyclable void filling or repurposed boxes in order to reduce waste. We ask that wherever possible you repurpose these items again or dispose of them responsibly.

All LTCO parcels are shipped via tracked service, and where possible will be delivered on a next day service.
