How We Pack
Want to know how we ship from Package Free Shop #zerowaste style?
We ship completely plastic free. Everything is 100% recyclable and 100% compostable.
What are fragile materials protected with during shipment?
We try not to put any packing materials inside of shipping boxes, but for any orders that are fragile, we use post-consumer 100% recyclable and 100% compostable paper packing materials inside of our boxes.
What are your shipping labels made of?
Our packing labels are 100% recyclable, compostable, and plastic free.
How are our boxes sealed?
We seal our boxes with non-reinforced paper tape. It is 100% recyclable, compostable, and plastic free.
Where can you find that tape?
The reusable tape can easily and conveniently be purchased from Uline. We encourage all of our brands to use it. You can find it here !
What do we request of our wholesalers?
We require that all shipments to Package Free Shop come 100% plastic free (that includes bio-based or compostable plastics as well). The less packaging the better. All shipments that are sent to us that violate these guidelines will be returned to the brands and their products will not be put on the shelf. Harsh? Maybe on the brands, but not on the environment, and to us, that comes first.
What can we ask of our customers?
Once we ship a package to customers we cannot control what they do with the packaging materials, but we do encourage all of our customers to reuse, compost, or recycle all packing materials.
Thanks for thinking outside the box!
