We are working everyday towards making our business more sustainable and eco-friendly, here are some of the big things we do that make us eco-friendly now.
What makes our packaging eco-friendly?
-Tissue = printed with soy-based inks, on FSC-certified paper, and is Acid, sulphur, and lignin-free. noissue Tissue is 100% Compostable, Recyclable, and made from recycled materials.
-Tape = printed with soy-based inks, 100% compostable, made from recycled materials & reusable.
-Hang Tags = made from recycled materials & easily curbside recyclable.
-All Paper = easily curbside recyclable.
-PolyMailers / Apparel Bags = made from a combination of PBAT, a bio based polymer which is compostable, and PLA which is made up of plant materials such as regular ﬁeld corn and wheat straw.
What do we do daily to be more eco-friendly?
We recycle as much as we can, all cardboard / curbside recycled plastic / glass we can recycled curbside in our city. However, we still recycle thin plastics that are not curbside recyclable by taking them to plastic drop off points (we have some at Lowes & Walmart, but there are so many more just consult Google). We also compost all of our materials we receive that are certified compostable after we are through - however we try to keep the lifespan of our products we use as long as possible so we cause less waste.
What about apparel? Is it eco-friendly?
We are striving to make all of our apparel eco-friendly, but because we are a small business & still relatively new it is a big undertaking as sustainable / recycled garments are much more $$$ for the buyer and consumer. However, we do not over purchase inventory & we only buy limited quantities to help with this mission. & most of our tshirts & sweatshirts are made from 100% cotton (which is one of the most sustainable and natural materials to use).
What else do we do with our products to be more environmentally conscious?
We are adamant about supporting other smaller businesses when we purchase Wholesale products, this is a key factor for us in being more environmentally conscious because it lowers the production of large companies who are constantly putting out the largest emissions of toxic chemicals and gasses into the atmosphere. We support smaller wholesale Blank tshirt companies, apparel distributors & artists, and anywhere else in our daily lives when we can!
