Currently, my business is not 100% sustainable, but I aim to be as environmentally friendly as possible.
All mailers are made from 100% recycled chipboard, are FCS certified, and can be recycled.
All envelopes are made from 100% recycled paper and can be recycled.
All glassine bags are FDA and USDA compliant and are bio-degradable and compostable.
I use an Epson Ecotank printer, which saves on ink and does not use cartridges.
My sticker paper is not recyclable, but I do my best to ensure there is as little waste as possible.
My prints are made in Canada, and for each order placed, the equivalent paper consumption is calculated, and trees to "replace" this order are planted in BC.
My pins are made in Toronto and China. While I did my best to find Canadian companies, most are just middlemen for Chinese companies.
Starting 2023, I will be partnering with Carbonfund.org to offset all carbon emissions caused by my business.
Currently, all my pin orders arrive to me in small plastic bags. I have requested all future orders to be plastic free.
