At Millinery Hub, we want to make the world a better place for this and future generations. Therefore sustainability and our impact on the environment is a big part of what we do.
Here are some of the initiatives we are taking.
We are part of the CarbonClick climate action movement, reducing the environmental impact of e-commerce. We both contribute to CarbonClick and enable you to compensate for your carbon emissions, so you can shop climate-friendly. To read about how CarbonClick is reducing greenhouse gasses, visit their website.
Waste, especially plastic, is making a massive impact on our planet. For the few products that need bags, like stamens, we use cellophane. Cellophane is made from wood pulp and is degradable. We don’t buy any plastic packaging for or products, but unfortunately, some come already wrapped plastic. In this case, we keep them ‘as is’ when we ship them to you. Unnecessary packaging like bubble and shrink wraps we recycle or reused to package some of your items.
All of our product packagings are either recycled, reused, or both. So if your millinery materials arrive in a fertiliser, wine, or some other weird box, I think that’s better than wrapping it in plastic. We also recently replaced our invoice slips and packaging tape with biodegradable options. We hope you will dispose of or similarly reuse the packaging, but we rest assured that we have done our part even if you don’t.
