I want to do what I can to help keep the world going. In terms of fighting climate change and working towards a more sustainable and eco-friendly future, I do my best to make sure my products and packaging have minimal impact on the earth we all call home.
Minimal impact, for me, means something is either...
- Sustainably sourced
- A mix of or all of the above
I understand that not every place has the same recycling infrastructure, so I do my best to keep the recycling/reusability process simple to help more folks be eco-friendly without it being a chore. This is why a majority (and in the future, all) off my packaging is curbside recyclable and/or easily reusable.
here's a breakdown of your order's packaging:
- All my cards are printed by GotPrint, on recycled and recyclable paper and using low-impact inks.
- Bubble and poly mailers are recycled, recyclable, and reusable, and I get them from EcoEnclose.
- These mailers come with an additional self-seal, so if they're opened using the tear strip, they can be filled up, sealed closed, and shipped again.
- To recycle these, they have to be taken to grocery/department stores that recycle plastic grocery/shopping bags.
- Sticker mailers are recycled, recyclable, and reusable, and are from ClearBags. They can be recycled in curbside/local recycling bins.
- Pins and stickers come wrapped in glassine bags, which are recyclable and reusable. I get mine from ClearBags.
- I close glassine bags with washi tape, which is reusable if peeled off carefully, otherwise it can be recycled.
- I wrap items together using hemp twine, which can be recycled in some areas. Otherwise, it can be either be reused or tossed.
- Sometimes I reuse packaging from stuff I've gotten in the mail. I do my best to only reuse easily recyclable stuff, but sometimes reuse unrecyclable plastic to prevent it from being single-use. Please add to the chain and reuse this plastic as well, if possible.
