Shopping with us actually has a huge impact!
Containers and packaging make up a major part of total landfill waste in the US. The EPA estimates that in 2017, packaging accounted for almost 30% of all municipal solid waste! While some of this packaging is recycled, packaging accounted for 23% of waste sent to landfills in the same year. We obviously have work to do!
Every Bubble Baby order will be shipped in a 100% compostable mailer. Along with our efforts to be as green as possible every Bubble Baby product will have biodegradable hang tags, and reusable garment bags!
Eco-friendly packaging reduces waste, and gives us another way to leave a positive environmental footprint.
The Benefits of Our Packaging
Compostable packaging transforms packaging waste into a product that improves our soil. The resulting compost is then used to grow new plants. A recyclable product can only be recycled a limited number of times, but the composting process is endlessly circular.
Just think - if all packaging were composted, that 30% of municipal solid waste would instead be used to create beneficial compost!
The landfill should be the very last option for waste disposal. In fact, we don’t think they should exist at all. By working together to reduce plastic and redirect organic waste to composting we can have a huge impact on the health of our environment.
What to do with our compostable mailers, garment bags & labels
Our mailers can be used twice, there is a second layer of adhesive you can use too! If you do not have a use for our mailer all you simply need to do is chop it up with the label included and add it to your home compost. Our garment bags can be reused indefinitely!🌱
