We re-use all boxes that come to us from our suppliers, and when required, we purchase boxes with as much post-consumer content as we are able to find locally. We also use 100% recycled packaging material and water-activated packing tape that is made out of 50% recycled paper, and is certified as recycle-friendly.
Any packing slips or posters included in our shipped materials are printed on 100% recycled paper. And our shipping labels are printed with environmentally sensitive labels using environmentally sensitive inks.
When required, we use Spark, Canada’s first dedicated electric vehicle carshare, to transport orders from our store to Canada Post. We are also currently working out an agreement with the Nature Conservancy of Canada to purchase carbon offsets with each order to compensate for the carbon footprint associated with delivering orders through Canada Post.
