MAKING STRIDES

  |  Uncategorized

I am super excited to show you our new and improved shipping boxes.  I never thought I would be so excited about cardboard, but this cardboard makes my heart sing.  I am not sure I have gotten into it much here, but I am a big fan of the earth.  Crazy, I know, but I love her and all that she does for us.  I recycle and compost at home. I make my children use recyclable containers, even though they say that it embarrasses them at times that I re-use jars.  Ha!!  I felt like I was making the appropriate steps at home, but I wanted to make some changes at work as well.  We started using a casting company this year that uses all recycled gold, which was huge.  I also want to do my part with the shipping materials that go out of my studio each day.  As I began to research eco-friendly shipping materials, I found EcoEnclose.  They are a compostable, biodegradable, sustainable packaging  business.  Jackpot!  I went with my simple circle logo for the outside of the package.  I love the way it looks and love the shape and size of the box.  We have quite a bit of packaging, notecards and business cards that we will work on once our current stock runs out.  Baby steps?   Living close to the ocean has reaffirmed my desire to  do my little part to reduce waste, reuse, recycle, compost, and remain conscious of our impact on the earth.
