Sustainability Report

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.

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. Seeking alternatives in 2022.

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 & Kraft paper – 100% up-cycled for tissue paper. Kraft paper is recycled material and is often up-cycled. Both can be reused by you.

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.

Packaging Tape – Will switch to kraft packing tape when the switch to kraft mailers is made.

Electricity Consumption – High. If things go well, I expect to lower electricity consumption by as much as 75% by 2025 by using alternative energy sources.

Carbon Footprint – Low. Packages are picked up at the same time the local post is delivered or dropped off while running errands.
