Shipping Materials and Practices
All Well Earth Goods products are packed in 100% recyclable paper based or compostable starch-based materials including:
- Recycled paper tape
- Recycled labels
- Recycled mailer envelopes
- Recycled kraft paper for cushioning
- Compostable, dissolvable starch-based packing peanuts
Some of our products are shipped in a recyclable/biodegradable no wax paper glassine bag. Glassine is a thin, flat, and smooth paper that is resistant to water, air, and grease. It's made through a manufacturing process called supercalendering, which involves running paper web through hot rollers to make the fibers lay flat and in the same direction. Examples of products packaged in glassine bags include shampoo bars, and laundry detergent strips
Many of our glassine bags come with a sticker on them indicating whats inside the bag, as well as keeping it closed. These stickers are made from compostable sugercane pulp, and use a special adhesive that is also compostable.
Packing Peanuts & other reused materials
Occasionally we have local businesses donating packing material to use that we reuse. This often includes dissolvable and compostable starch-based packing peanuts. We also reuse boxes and paper that we receive in order to cut down on our waste/recycling.
No plastic is ever used, and the smallest boxes or envelopes possible are used to reduce materials.
As always, free shipping in the USA.
