The Indoor Plant Gallery teams loves to up-cycle and reuse where-ever we can. We live in a world full of stuff, there is so much we can reuse and give a second life.
The things we often up-cycle are:
Boxes - Loads of boxes.
Bubble wrap - Lots of plastic!
Hex Wrap - Brilliant cardboard alternative to bubble wrap.
Golden Gems - Polystyrene Packaging Chips.
Eco Golden Gems - Biodegradable Packaging Chips. If you can't tell the difference between Biodegradable and Polystyrene Packaging Chips, put a few in a cup of water for a few hours, and the biodegradable ones will slowly shrink and dissolve.
The items we do purchase are:
Stickers - 100% home compostable.
Thermo Shipping Labels - 100% home compostable.
Packing Tape - The Indoor Plant Gallery branded kraft packaging tape is made with soy based dies, vegetable gum and either recycled or FSC certified paper, and is 100% home compostable.
Tissue Paper - The Indoor Plant Gallery branded tissue paper is made with soy based dies and either recycled or FSC certified paper, and is 100% home compostable.
Business Cards - Printed on 100% post consumer card and are 100% home compostable.
Mailing Bags - Eco-mailers are made from plant-based products and are 100% home compostable.
Boxes - All of the boxes that come into our warehouse are sent right back out there. The boxes we do purchase are made with recycled or certified FSC paper.
If your order is a gift and you would like a new box for your order, please let us know in the order notes.
If the packaging is brown or says The Indoor Plant Gallery, you're in the green. We recommend removing all unbranded packaging products if you choose to home compost. We have made every effort and will continue to improve, ensuring the packaging we use can be home composted or consciously up-cycled once again.
The Indoor Plant Gallery is a proud supporter of the Eco-Alliance Tree Plant Program and our shipping is 100% certified carbon neutral.
