We are proud to not use ANY plastic packaging for shipping and only use recyclable & compostable materials.
Instead of typical plastic mailers, we only use kraft paper mailers that are padded with post consumer recycled newspaper.
Our boxes are fully recyclable with paper tape, instead of plastic tape.
We use packaging that is as small as possible to properly fit our product and use the least amount of materials. This also ensures we use only the space we require on shipping trucks.
We believe it is the company's responsibility, not the consumers', to be forward thinking and conscientious of the amount of waste that comes with each order and it's impact in our environment.
Packaging that's created to be trash from it's conception is mind boggling to us. Not only is it a waste of money for both consumer and company, plastic packaging is the number ONE cause of plastic waste and is responsible for almost half of the global plastic waste total.
For this reason, we do not use any packaging on our products besides the mailer or box our items are shipped in to reduce waste. This means you may occasionally see a tiny imperfection here and there but we feel more comfortable with this than adding to our planet's excess waste problem.
We live in an instant gratification world and it's important to consider the environmental impacts of this mindset. One to two day shipping via major shipping companies, requires a unique trip specifically to deliver an item to the consumer. With this comes extra carbon emissions and typically tons of plastic packing materials.
Because most residential and commercial addresses are visited by the USPS almost every day of the week, we choose to utilize these predetermined postal routes to ship our packages. This helps us reduce our carbon footprint by not creating special trips. While this may take an extra day or two, our planet will thank you!
