In 2021, we have fully expanded our eco friendly business practices.

  • Mailers: No more plastic poly mailers. We’re proud to now use Wastebased, plant based mailers. Our new mailers are compostable in both residential and commercial conditions. They contribute to mangrove estuary regeneration in Madagascar and help to draw CO2 out of the atmosphere. 

  • Envelopes: No more plastic, zip baggies. We are proud to now use 100% recycled paper bags from Nashville Wraps. They are compostable and printed with water based ink. 

  • Card stock: Printing can be a pain and lead to a lot of excess waste. We are proud to now use 100% post consumer recycled paper cards.

  • Gift tissue: Bubble wrap and dyed tissue paper causes harm to the environment. We will be using the rest of our signature yellow tissue paper, but have a new change ahead! We are proud to now use Eco-Friendly packing tissue, made from recovered papers from Nashville Wraps. 

  • Stickered Mailers: Having our logo on mailers is fun, but waste cause by individually cut stickers is not! We are moving away from stickers on baggies to stamping our logo on our new, 100% recycled paper bags.
