Black and white. And green.
Our products should arrive to your home looking as beautiful as they do in our stores, catalogs and website. With the goal of protecting your purchases as well as the environment, we are taking important steps to use eco-friendly packaging materials to deliver your goods. As part of our commitment, we will regularly explore the latest in green packaging, and we are encouraging our vendors to do the same. Together, we can reduce waste in our supply chain and create a more sustainable distribution system.
Our recycled bags and boxes.
All of our famous black and white boxes are made with renewable fiber that contains post-consumer recyclable material. Our store shopping bags are made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper (minimum 85 percent post-consumer waste) certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and printed with water-based inks. In addition, we use 100 percent recyclable tissue (70 percent post-consumer waste content) to protect items in our shopping bags and boxes.
GreenWrap and air pads.
Today, all merchandise boxed at our stores and warehouses is carefully packaged and protected with GreenWrap paper or air pads. GreenWrap is 100 percent recyclable paper, made from a renewable resource. Both its outer paper and inner tissue can go right in the recycling or composting bin. The air pads we use are source-reduced packaging: Each pad is 98 percent air and just 2 percent recyclable plastic, so they can be popped, disposed, recycled and reused in the manufacture of other plastic items.
