At Naturisimo, we are committed to doing our bit to respect our planet and make this a better world. Because we understand the impact packaging we use has on the environment, we continuously evaluate our systems to use only most responsible practises and eco-friendly packaging available today. Let us tell you a little bit more...
We source products that are responsibily packaged, limited to the amount necessary for safety and acceptance by consumers. Excess packaging used a marketing tool to make products more attractive is not acceptable to us. We favour packaging that can be recycled, manufactured responsibly, locally produced and biodegradable, all of which help reduce waste and pollution.
When our creative team set out to design our packaging, they wanted something that we could be very proud to send your orders in but also something that explained our attention to every detail. The result is that our delivery boxes are 100% recyclable and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) approved which helps prevent the use of illegally harvested timber. It also encourages forest owners to follow best social and environmental practises which include: protecting biodiversity, indigenous people's rights, worker's rights and other areas of environmental or cultural importance.
THE TISSUE PAPER
Our tissue paper was designed to achieve complete sustainability. It's 100% recyclable, free from chlorine bleach and printed with eco-friendly soy ink. Designed entirely by our creative team, the trees in the design were hand drawn and then printed into the paper by a sustainable company who have an initiative called 'Soft Steps Forward' which concentrates on promoting sustainability, respect for the environment and efficient operations.
Our materials including tissue paper, boxes and cards are printed with vegetable ink, which is made from renewable sources such as flax, safflower, canola or soy making it far more environmentally friendly than conventional petroleum-based ink. Vegetable ink is 100% recyclable and can be easily removed, far easier than removing regular ink. The benefits of using vegetable ink, as opposed to petroleum-based ink refined from crude oil, are numerous not only on the environment but also upon human health: less heavy metals, less pollution, more renewable, easier to recycle and many more.
THE LOOSE FILL
We use 100% biodegradable cornstarch-based packing peanuts to secure your products inside the box. These peanuts are made from sustainable raw materials in a low energy manufacturing process; a far more environmentally-friendly solution than petroleum-based polystyrene packing material. They are completely natural and non-toxic, which means if they are ingested by accident (by a pet for example) they will not cause any harm. You can reuse them, recycle them with cardboard, paper or through composting.
