Being Eco Friendly in Business
Posted on August 22 2019
As a whanau we live a pretty eco friendly lifestyle. We grow a lot of our own fruit & veges, we compost, we harness our rain water, we are transitioning into becoming as plastic free as possible & we are very conscious with our buying power. So it only makes sense to live our beliefs through our business too!
GOOD FOR THE PLANET
Right at the start of our Serial Box journey we made the conscious decision to bring you products that we know are not only good for your body but also good for the planet. We carefully consider what the products are packaged in, what their ingredients are, if they are sustainable & of course that they are cruelty free.
We aim to bring you as many NZ made products as possible. Our decision was based on the fact that there are so many incredible artisan makers in New Zealand that use what nature provided. We are right up there as a beauty & skincare industry in providing high quality products that the rest of the world wants to get their hands on.
We also send your monthly Serial Box out in a plain cardboard box so that it can be recycled, reused or popped in the compost. There are no nasty chemicals or inks used. Along the way we were lucky enough to discover R3 pack (www.r3pack.co.nz that have created compostable courier bags too. These keep your parcels safe but have the awesome bonus of being gentle on our planet.
Each month since we began we have also included a info postcard with product & supplier details on it. We have listened to your feedback & have decided to stop including them in our boxes. They are producing unnecessary paper waste. You will still be able to find all of the details through posts on our website & social pages & we will be posting regular "how to" videos on our blog.
Finally we would like to say a huge thanks for your support in our Serial Box journey x
