At Dear Love, we believe that making small steps towards improving our environmental impact is the way forward for a long lasting, sustainable practice.
Dear Love are proud to offer The Better Packaging Co. satchels with each order. Their comPOST Packs are home compostable and will biodegrade in 3-6 months. When you’ve finished the satchel, just put it in with your food scraps and garden waste, and before you know it, worms will be eating the satchel for breakfast. Better for the environment, better for our oceans, a better tomorrow. Read more about the full life-cycle here.
We also use No Issue for our custom printed tissue paper. They use soy-based inks and the tissue paper is completely acid free and FSC Certified. Read more about No Issue here.
We use PrintTogether to print the postcards that come with each order. PrintTogether only buys recycled paper. And are one of only a handful of printers globally to have this as a fundamental business principle. They buy in bulk at 40-50% cheaper than regular retail prices. Their idea is to make printing on recycled cheaper than non-recycled, to make it an environmentally and financial benefit for clients. Read more here.
Dear Love has partnered with Sendle to provide 100% carbon neutral shipping. Sendle has partnered with South Pole Group to offset the emissions of every parcel that is picked up and delivered with Sendle. Each year, Sendle's community of business owners have been given the opportunity to direct their impact by choosing the projects that offset Sendle's carbon emissions.
The paper used at head office is from Buy Eco Green Australia. The packing slips are printed on 100% post-consumer recycled brown paper, process chlorine free (PCF) and made in Australia. We also use their Cellophane bags for our Embroidered patch packaging. They are made from a biodegradable cellulose. The bags come from a new range of NatureFlex™ cellophane film which is certified to the European (EN13432) and American (ASTM D6400) norms for industrially biodegradable packaging. In addition they have been certified by Vincotte to the OK Compost home standard for home composting. As they are open ended, we use washi tape to close the packaging which is made from a japanese rice flour which means they from plastics and acid.
