We received an email from one of our customers asking about the new packaging. The question was referring to the first order she placed arriving in a rather boring post office box. Then, her second order arrived in... as she put it...
"In a really fun paper bag!"
Yep, we shipped several smaller items towards the end of the year in packaging inspired by rustic recycling. We picked up a couple of boxes of recycled paper lunch bags at a clearance sale. The bags, which can be recycled, are paired up with some environmentally friendly packaging material. The result is a green friendly packaging that looks as cool as a hand packed lunch without the use of Styrofoam or similar materials.
It's working great with the smaller items so far. And, we hope to make the switch to similar materials for all of our items as soon as possible.
