I do my best to choose materials for my products that are made from 100% recycled materials. My cards, envelopes, journals and shipping mailers are all made from recycled materials. I love that I have been able to find companies that have the same values as I do about our Earth.
Packing materials can turn into a lot of plastic waste. My goal on this end is to reuse packing materials that I source from the local flower shop I work along with packages that come to my door. This way it isn't going to waste AND I am not contributing to the waste by buying new matierals. When this isn't an option due to low supply, I do my best to source from places like Eco Enclose to get eco friendly packing materials. Another beautiful company with convitions that line up with Misc Delights!
Also, starting this year, Etsy became the first major online shopping destination to offset 100% of carbon emissions from shipping. Now, every time you purchase an item on Etsy, they balance out the carbon emissions by creating positive environmental impact. How freaking cool is that?! Learn more about that here.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about my process and heart to keep things earth friendly! I hope this can encourage you to keep the earth in mind in your daily life. If you have any thoughts or questions about loving the earth, I could talk about it for dayyyys, so please comment or shoot me a message!
All my love,
