Today is Earth Day. We could have talked about how our environmental footprints influes on our planet's health, and how some species are threatened, but instead, we choose to have a positive voice and talk about a huge deal for us, our packaging.
As a (very) small company, it was very hard to start with limited quantities to buy and sustainable materials - and especially in France. But we managed to find the best solution possible so only the best quality possible (sustainably speaking) is used to wrap up your beautiful garments! Even if our hang tag is printed with recycling instructions, we wanted to give you a reminder, so here is how to recycle our packaging:
What to recycle (with plastic, cardboard etc.)?
If you have received your order by mail, it was packed in a cardboard box. These are made in France and are reusable or recyclable. In other case, we use kraft bags that must be recycled too.
Our hang tags, that can either be covered and reused as a gift tag, are made of cardboard (from sustainable forests). These must be recycled with your everyday recycling or in special paper and cardboard bins.
The printed postergoodie added to your order is made with the same paper, and must be recycled. But wehighly encourage you to reuse it and decorate your moodboard or your favorite diary!
What to compost?
To protect your orders, we wrap the tees and sweaters in PLA bags. They have the same protective properties as plastic, but are made from corn or sugar cane and are fully compostable! If your city doesn't do compost, please put them in the general garbage bin, and not in the recycling!
If you have any question or want further details, you can easily contact us directly. The Earth says thank you 🍁
