Our Packaging Practices
REDUCE, RE-USE, RECYCLE
NICHE Boutique's guarantee to our customers is the importance of sustainability. This is extremely important to us. However, “zero waste” is complicated and hard to maintain but we are doing our best to reduce our carbon footprint in the world. If packaging material isn't eco-friendly, chances are it'll get thrown into a landfill. Packaging makes up one-third or more of our trash. Canadians generate approximately 31 million tonnes of garbage a year and only recycle about 30% of that material. Even when you purchase one cup of coffee in a disposable container everyday (which we are all guilty of doing) you create about 23 lb of waste each year!!
We package orders in recycled poly mailers, recycled padded mailers and recycled boxes. In doing this we are cutting down on the pollution and supporting other businesses whose mission is to decrease our carbon footprint as well. We also re-use bubble wrap, paper and newspaper. Reusing is one of the most important goals of sustainability. We also reduce waste by using less packaging materials.With these greener shipping methods we truly hope our business can be more eco-friendly to help the Earth! So go green and choose to re-use!
