How are you a green store? While we are not 100% yet, there are several measures that we have implemented to help in making us more eco-friendly. For example: There are still some things such as Printer Ink, Packing Tape etc that do not have a cost effective alternative yet but we do what we can. So next time you get one of our packages, look inside and you'll see the variety of packing material that can be used and maybe get some ideas of your own.
Packing Material -- We do not buy our packing material, it is 100% reused from local businesses. Plastic bags from a clothing store for padding. Foam and bubble wrap from a local electronics company. Newspapers from neighbors. As well as anything else we can get our hands on to make sure our items arrive safely to their destinations.
Paperless Invoice -- We do not include invoices in our boxes. All the information from your purchases can be found here online. So why waste the paper that will most likely get thrown away?
Boxes -- We re-use boxes whenever it is possible. We get a variety of different sizes from local businesses around here and the rest come from USPS. Which according to them are Partially made from recycled material and produced in an eco-friendly way. We also buy shipping labels that are made from recycled paper.
