Recycling Guide

Sustainability is a top priority here, and I'm proud to use packaging materials that are kind to our planet โ€“ recycled, recyclable, biodegradable, or compostable.

To make sure you can keep the green momentum going, I've put together this handy guide. It'll fill you in on how to responsibly handle the packaging materials once they arrive at your doorstep.

Just a quick note, though โ€“ recycling guidelines can vary by location, so be sure to double-check the specifics for your local area.

  • Paper Envelopes & Mailers

    Fully Curb-side Recyclable and Biodegradable.

    I tend to mostly use paper and cardboard materials now due to the ease-ability of recycling and reusing for most customers.

  • Corrugated Boxes, Pads & Infill

    Fully Curb-side Recyclable and Biodegradable.
    Can be composted (remove all stickers & labels)

    Before tossing into your recycling bin, remember to peel off any stickers and labels. And if you're feeling extra eco-savvy, feel free to reuse those materials for another purpose!

    Not all recycling centers may take the shredded cardboard infill, but it can be composted (I remove all tape and labels before shredding)!

  • Tissue Paper & Wrapping

    Made from Recycled Materials. Biodegradable.ย 
    Tissue Paper isn't always recyclable (check your local recycling center first)

    I have recently switched to paper wrapping, which is:
    Made from Recycled Content.
    Fully Curb-side Recyclable and Biodegradable.

  • Packing Tape

    My Printed Packing tape is 100% Recycled FSC, Water-Activated, and Printed with Soy-Based Inks.

    My self-adhesive kraft paper tape is made from a blend of recyclable paper and natural & rubber adhesives.

    Both can be left on boxes when recycling!

  • Thin Plastic Bags

    Not typically curb-side recycled. Can be given off at plastic bag dropoffs (found at many retail stores and grocery stores)

  • Eco-Friendly Cello Bags

    Made from Compostable Materials. May need to be commercially composted. If you don't have access to commercial composting, place the bags into your garbage.
