Packaging + Recycling
Low Waste philosophy is based on the idea of preventing waste from entering landfills, oceans, and other environments where it can harm humans or disrupt ecosystems.
Green Life Trading Co. ships almost all of our products without using plastic. Our boxes are post-consumer usually coming from our vendors, friends and family. We say we are “almost plastic free” because many of the boxes we receive already have plastic stickers and tape on them. If we did not use these boxes they would otherwise be recycled or thrown away.
For delicate orders, we pad our boxes with post-consumer and recyclable paper packing material. Boxes are sealed with a non-reinforced paper tape. This tape uses a plant-based glue and is water activated, meaning it’s also recyclable and compostable.
When you receive a box from us, please continue its life and use it again.
