We use recyclable packaging, like actually out of our recycle bin. Our friends and family keep their cardboard boxes for us to upcycle, so you never know what you’re going to get! We believe that using recycled packaging is great, but where possible we try to use boxes that already exist in the world – lets give them a longer life!
Avoiding plastic where possible, we have decided to use a minimal amount of biodegradable tape.
📃 Filler Packaging
Your parcel will contain some packaging for protection. We would love if you would reuse the packaging first, then compost, upcycle or lastly recycle – see the 5 R’s to help minimise landfill and energy used to recycle.
We use a variety of filler packaging, so your box may include:
|Packaging||Ideas & suggestions to re-use|
|Upcycled paper or cardboard from other parcels||Reuse for gift giving, for scrapbooking or quilling, recycle or compost|
|Shredded paper from a local Melbourne based business who kindly donate the contents of their office paper shredder||Pop in the compost, give to someone who has chickens/bunnies/guinea pigs, or make a paper mache creation|
|Pieces of bamboo clothing samples from another small sustainable Melbourne family business, Kingston Grange||Take off your make-up, use as a handkerchief or as a glasses cleaning cloth|
