Shipping – it’s a bit of a bitch. It’s expensive - for let’s face it; what feels like air. It’s time consuming - especially when shipments go astray and the birthday for which your parcel was intended... has been and gone. It’s also a bit of a slap in the face to mother nature. The excess packaging some companies use is almost criminal! Massive boxes – tiny products, boxes inside boxes, plastic in plastic in plastic, so much overkill it is infuriating and heartbreaking.
Well... at ‘That Red House’ we are trying to lead by example and have gone the extra mile to make sure we are not creating any waste in our shipments to our retailers, distributors and of course our lovely customers.
So…. what do we do?
Well, along the way we have made changes to our packaging and made the environmentally friendly choice to use zero waste products.
We package with recyclable materials, recycled materials or with ones that are fully compostable. We strive to have the lowest environmental impact possible.
We ensure the packaging you receive from us will leave no waste behind!
We use in our warehouse:
- Cardboard boxes to house our products
- Recycled cardboard as padding (where needed)
- BIO-gone tape to seal our boxes – This tape is ‘landfill bio-degradable’. Chuck it in your landfill bin and it will break down. Boom!
- Biodegradable and compostable mailing satchels.
- Landfill compostable invoice slips
We will continue to strive for change, to lessen our impact on this beautiful planet. Thanks for being a part of our journey!
