Sustainable online store
Sustainability is fundamental in our current way of life. And rightly so! The Western way of life is, unfortunately, very demanding of our dear planet. As an online store, we are aware that we must contribute to reducing our carbon footprint. Every detail counts and we are very proud of the efforts we make to reduce the impact of online shopping on the environment.
Cardboard, a material with low ecological impact
Because your pleasure should not come at the expense of the environment, all our packages are shipped in recycled cardboard. Plus, you won't see a single drop of ink on them. On the one hand, for the sake of discretion for you and on the other hand to preserve nature. Indeed, we prefer to avoid wasting ink on a cardboard box that you may no longer use once the package is opened. Moreover, do not hesitate to give it a second life by using it for storage or to wrap your Christmas gifts.
Plastic? No thanks!
We never use plastic bags or envelopes to ship your orders. In addition, we choose the smallest possible box for each order. Some boxes, especially for large orders, are automatically folded to the correct size, allowing us to use minimal or no filler material. Unsurprisingly, transporting air and fillers is not environmentally friendly. That's why we do our best to avoid it as much as possible.
To protect your items, we opt for paper
The filling material we use to keep products stable during transport is always made from recycled paper. We do not use bubble wrap, air cushion bags or Styrofoam filler shavings. Thus, the filler material can be recycled together with the cardboard box.
Our paper and cardboard are FSC certified
All the paper and cardboard we use carry the FSC label. This means that the raw materials are extracted from responsibly managed forests and recycled materials.
No tape: one more waste avoided
Our boxes are carefully sealed with biodegradable glue. Only the largest boxes are still sealed with tape.
A return? Reuse the same box!
You can carefully open the glued boxes without damaging them so that you can reuse them in the event of a return. And yes, we have thought of everything!
A smaller packing slip
Have trouble understanding why some packing slips are still A4 when there is only one product listed on them? We do, too! So, we chose to switch to smaller packing slips, which means we use a lot less paper on an annual basis. Maybe it's not a big deal, but every gesture for the environment counts. Just like turning off the tap when you brush your teeth before a wild night in the company of our best products.
We do not pre-print return labels
Some webshops automatically send a return label with every order. It can be useful, but in our opinion it's wasteful: who would want to return such bewitching products? If you still wish to return a product to us, we will email you a return label. All you have to do is print it out and stick it on the package.
80% of the electricity consumed in our warehouse is produced by solar panels located on the roof. And for the lighting inside the warehouse, we opted for LEDs because their environmental impact is much smaller than incandescent bulbs.
As you can see, we are doing our best to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible.
