We are strong believers in using our platform to promote sustainability initiatives; there is no planet B.
The package that your order comes in, whether it be a box or a mailer, is 100% recyclable. No need to remove the tape closure as our tape is made from 100% recycled FSC-certified acid-free paper, printed using soy-based inks, and finished with a non-toxic adhesive. All of which make it recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable.
When opening your parcel (eek, exciting!), the tissue paper and branded card included are both 100% recyclable. Your products will come in a cotton pouch (no polyester here!), which can be reused for safe travel with your piece(s).
All of our products are produced with Cellulose Acetate (CA), which is a renewable synthetic fibre developed from plant derivatives such as wood pulp & cotton. Cellulose Acetate has a heightened biodegradability level than traditional plastics; the degradation time of CA is 1-3 years (and is highly biodegradable in soil and seawater) whereas general plastics & resins degrade over several decades to several hundreds of years.
It's no secret that shipping releases toxins that increase our carbon footprint. We are happy to offer a carbon-offset addition at checkout. By opting-in to making your order carbon neutral at checkout (which is specific to your order weight & destination), the value will be donated to maintaining the Tri-City Forest. The Tri-City Forest captures 100,000 metric tons of carbon each year and protects 6,500 acres of forest. Want to learn more about this initiative? Drop us a line here.
