I was recently asked how green my products are and if my processes are eco-friendly.
I am very happy to say that most of my materials themselves are eco-friendly; the journals that I use to created Jolie Journals are made from recycled materials...all of the cardstock and paper that is in my shop is acid free...all of my adhesives are non-toxic, some even washable!
This paper is actually 70% recycled!
The ink that I use is all acid free as well!
In terms of my processes, I try to reuse as much as possible. Since I purchase alot of things on Etsy (spreading the love!!), I reuse the shipping boxes that I get (along with diaper boxes and any other sturdy box around the house!), along with the bubble wrap and tissue.
The bubble wrap that I purchase is actually made from recycled materials too! How cool!!
The twine that I use from Nashville Wraps is made from recycled materials too!
And the cello bags that I use for packaging my paper products to protect them from water during shipping...they're recycled too!
It's pretty easy to find a way these days to fit some green into your business plan...and it feels pretty awesome too!
