I care about our environment and as a small business owner I make an effort to reduce unnecessary waste.
- All lampshades are cellophane wrapped when they arrive with you. This is to protect them to ensure the materials remain tip-top and free from dust and dirt. The cellophane wrap is 100% biodegradable, so you can dispose of this without worrying about adding to landfill.
- In order to protect the lampshades in transit, I use a small amount of protective packaging such as bubble wrap, paper packaging and double-walled cardboard boxes. Packaging material has been reused where possible, so please continue the cycle and try to reuse these to minimise environmental impact.
- I hand stamp each outer cardboard box with a 'Fragile' message, rather than use plastic packaging tape, and include a paper hand-stamped note with each shade.
- I use brown paper tape to seal boxes which is fully biodegradable
