Whenever possible, they package orders minimally and prioritize reusing, recycling, recycling, and biodegradable shipping materials. Glassine envelopes – made from uncoated wood pulp, 100% recycled- are used for small items. They are biodegradable and recyclable. On the other hand, the paper they use for larger items is either craft paper or tissue paper. Both are made from recycled materials and are also recyclable. 90% of the time, they reuse cushioning material and use recyclable corrugated cardboard boxes for shipping.
