PACKAGING AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
In an effort to reduce the amount of packaging used, we focus on recyclable, compostable or reusable packaging for both our products and shipping. With shipping we reuse packaging from our vendors to reduce the amount of single-use plastics. Any plastic packaging you receive has been reused and we encourage you to keep reusing it as well. Any new packaging is always either recyclable, reusable or compostable.
We choose products with minimal to no packaging or packaging that can be recycled, composted or reused when possible.
We strongly believe in offsetting our carbon footprint by supporting local businesses when possible, choosing products that are natural and sustainable and have multiple functions and uses.
COLLABORATIONS AND CUSTOM ORDERS
