This Crooked Crown is heavily conscious of environmental sustainability and endeavors to recycle or offer sustainable materials with my products. I also want to be completely open about where I are when it comes to sustainability.
Last updated 01/23/2018
Herbs – Most herbs are grown, wildcrafted, or purchased from organic producers. I try for local sources first and foremost.
Beeswax – Purchased from an organic apiary in the Pacific Northwest. Currently seeking local producers.
Containers + Jars – Purchased new for sanitation reasons. All jars and containers can be washed and re-used by you.
Personal Order Note / Cards – 100% up-cycled. All notepads are given to me from various people and organizations.
Business Cards – Currently custom printed on Kraft paper. Potentially seeking alternatives in 2019.
Product Labels – Currently custom printed. Actively looking for alternatives.
Boxes + Mailers – Boxes and gold mailers are 100% up-cycled. Once mailers run out, will switch to hand-making mailers out of recycled Kraft paper.
Tissue Paper – 100% up-cycled. Will be changing over to recycled Kraft paper by spring 2018.
Cotton Thread – Bought new. Can be reused by you.
Packaging Material – 100% up-cycled. Products are often packaged in recycled Kraft paper. I save all packaging materials such as shipping peanuts or bubble wrap from my own incoming shipments and re-purpose them for your orders.
Printer Paper + Shipping Labels – 100% sugar cane paper. I recently switched to emailing PDFs for salves in order to really save the trees.
Packaging Tape – Actively seeking sustainable sources. Expected changeover in 2019.
Electricity Consumption – High. If things go well, I expect to lower electricity consumption by as much as 75% by 2020 by using alternative energy sources within the next 5 years.
Carbon Footprint – Low. Packages are picked up at the same time the local post is delivered or dropped off while running errands.
