Have you every ordered something online and been appalled by the size of the box it arrived it? Or purchased something from a store and been put off by it's wasteful packaging?
Of course you have - that's why I like you!
Personally, I have always been a reuser.
Likely to a fault. 🤷♀️
But I've carried this mentality over to Eco Shark and based our packaging and shipping policies after it. I am committed to efficiently packing each and every order, and avoid the shameful over-packaging that's rampant with online retailers.
I spent many years boycotting <insert major online retailer here> because of ghastly business and wasteful environmental practices - but that doesn't mean I won't canvas the neighbourhood collecting their gently used packages to reuse!
Aside from our healthy stock of reused envelopes, here are the materials we use:
🌱 100% recycled kraft boxes & padded envelopes
🌱 100% home compostable mailer bags, made from plant starch
🌱 Recyclable paper tape & hemp fibre shipping labels
🌱 100% recycled kraft paper bags for our free local pick up orders
🌱 Our tissue paper is green in colour and content! Made from 100% post-industrial recycled materials and dyed with water based ink
This is just one of the many benefits of supporting a small business who really cares. Like, really really cares.
