We received a note from a customer recently regarding our packaging; particularly the amount of it. It made us think and we responded with our stance on what we send out and how we send it. Then we thought we should talk about it.
We try and be as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible, here at Coffeecups HQ, while still providing customers with a value for money service. It's difficult as a business to be completely "green" but we really do try. As we are shipping ceramic and glass items, we do need to pack them in as safe an environment as possible, which means that there will be plenty of filling around the items to make sure they get to you safely. We've recently made some changes to our packaging which has improved our green footprint and now we are confident that the packaging we send out to you is sustainable and as friendly to the planet as possible. This includes:
In addition to everything the customer sees, we also recycle almost all of our waste as a business, so we are doing a fair amount to make sure we aren't damaging the planet any more than we need to be. Are we perfect? Not yet, but we are getting there and it'll be worth it.
So the next time you are opening your box of cups and see loads of cardboard and packing, you can at least be safe in the knowledge that it'll be recyclable.
