REDUCE CARDBOARD CONSUMPTION
We use a lot of cardboard in the packaging of Desolve Supply Co. products. Therefore, we have an opportunity to make an impact on our environmental footprint by reducing the amount of new cardboard being produced.
Firstly we chose to sacrifice the more polished look by using recycled card and vegetable-based inks. Also, after much research, we found that a standard shoebox design made the boxes unrecyclable due to the glue involved. By thinking smarter and designing a box that avoids the use of glue, our shoe boxes are 100% recyclable.
While all our packaging is made from recyclable materials and can easily be recycled, if it does find its way into landfills it will decompose quickly with no adverse effects. If you want to you can chuck it in your compost bin at home.
We also are avoiding any unnecessary swing tags by only attaching key information, and having further information available online, to further reduce our cardboard consumption. These will also be made out of recycled cardboard and printed with vegetable-based inks.
As a result, you as a consumer know that when you're purchasing Desolve gear, you’re not only getting a sick product that will perform to the highest standard, but you're also supporting a forward-thinking brand that is doing its utmost to have the smallest environmental footprint in the industry. This is our starting point. We will continue to learn about other ways we can make a positive social and environmental impact and adopt these strategies to stick to our sustainability promise.
