It's important to us that we make as small a footprint on the natural world as possible. We are continually learning and evolving our practises, but sustainability and respect for the environment are top of mind as we choose who to work with and how to craft our products.
The tissue paper we use is recycled and compostable. Its eco-friendly in three main ways:
- FSC Certified - The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certifies that the paper products that make up the printed tissue paper are sourced from a forest and supply chain that is managed responsibly and sustainably.
- Acid Free - The tissue is made from cellulose fiber where the active acid pulp is eliminated during processing. It is also lignin- and sulfur-free, meaning that ink won’t transfer from the tissue and the paper won’t leave behind any of these chemicals when decomposing.
- Soy-based inks - Soy inks are an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based inks, made from soybeans, a renewable resource. While soy inks are slower to dry than many inks, the process produces more vibrant colors as well as having the added benefit of not leaving behind petroleum based products when decomposing. Finally, soy inks have low levels of VOCs, reducing air pollution during the drying process.
We do not use any cellophane in our packaging process. We are committed to using only recyclable packaging materials.
We use envelope suppliers who use recycled paper or paper from sustainable and accredited sources.
