When will I receive my order?
Typically, 5-8 business days once we ship it out.
How do you ship with no waste?
We only use up-cycled, recycled, recyclable and compostable materials. All shipping material is 100% plastic-free. If you have a question about your products or how to properly compost, recycle or reuse any packaging you receive, send us an email, we’re happy to help!
In order to repurpose shipping materials we acquire from our makers and vendors, we spend a lot of time breaking down boxes, organizing recycling and compost and tearing up up-cycled paper so that we can continue to find as many ways possible to keep our processes zero waste.
As much as we appreciate business from all over the US, our focus is local business for many reasons. We want to offer low markup costs to our local customers so that living with less waste and buying sustainably is affordable. Often times, there is a shop similar to us that is closer to you and with a little googling you are likely to find something that will offer you less shipping miles.
If you do choose to ship with us, we also choose to ship the majority of our packages through USPS since they already come to your residence on a daily basis. This cuts down gas and extra trips from other shipping carriers.
Why do some of your products have packaging?
Even though we pride ourselves on working with companies that are low-waste we cannot control some of the packaging that comes with our orders. There are many things we do to cut down waste which also include taking care of recycling, composting or up-cycling any materials we receive that are not necessary to send alongside your order. We are happy to say that we are a 98% zero waste shop.
If you look closely throughout our product descriptions, you will also see advice written from us personally on how to properly recycle or compost a product once it has reached the end of its' life.
