All our products are packaged and shipped in plain, unmarked packages. We reuse many of our shipping materials as our products come from all around the globe. We know everyone loves a nicely packed order with colorful confetti and paper but we have decided to maximize our efforts to create as little waste as possible. Many boxes, bubble wrap, packaging paper and peanuts come from our own supply orders. All packages with peanuts in them are bio peanuts made from entirely renewable resources and are 100% bio-degradable and compostable. While we encourage customers to reuse the peanuts, if they do end up 'in the wild' they don't harm the environment.
