Plastic Free Packaging
It's so important for us that we have eco-friendly packaging at The Earth Shop. So rest assured that all of our packaging is completely plastic free! No bubble wrap or polystyrene from us!
We use suitably sized cardboard boxes that are either recycled or made from recycled materials and are biodegradable. I will often re-use the boxes (and internal stuffing) from my suppliers, who all send orders to me plastic free as well. We hope you will reuse our boxes too!
All our internal packaging/stuffing is plastic free too, such as our tissue paper and brown filler paper which again is recycled and reusable.
Even our brown paper tape that we use to seal our boxes and parcels is completely plastic free and compostable, it has a natural adhesive and you can purchase this tape in our store.
LOGO STAMP & INK:
We use an eco-friendly wooden stamp (with natural, acid free and non toxic vegan ink) to hand stamp the logo on our boxes so as to reduce the extra paper that would be used for logo stickers.
THANK YOU CARD:
You will not receive a paper invoice or receipt from us with your purchase, this will be emailed to you instead (again to reduce paper). I send out a small thank you card with every order which has been stamped with our logo on recycled kraft paper.
This means, that all our packaging is completely biodegradable and compostable.
