In addition, we recycle all boxes, plastic bags, bubble wrap & styrofoam received from our manufacturers.
And now, effective Jan. 2012, we are using a new molded pulp fiber shipper for glass items, which provides great protection--like a box within a box-- while adding virtually no weight. This material is made from recycled newspaper sourced at fair market value from charitable groups. (We are in the process of phasing out the use of bubble wrap for glass bottles & jars. This material is made from 40% post-consumer recyclable plastic, and thus has sustainability issues.)
