New packaging for Olive Yew starts today!
I am a sucker for good packaging. A gift seem so much more special when it comes beautifully wrapped.
I tried to make my packaging as adorable as possible but I began to notice a couple of things that bothered me. First, it’s not as sustainable as I would prefer it to be. All of the paper we cut daily provided a lot of waste, and I could see the boxes being tossed as soon as they were opened. Looking at all of the paper left over from our medallions and the books and books of specialty papers that would ultimately wind up in a landfill made me feel guilty. I’m an avid recycler in my day-today life-time to make a change.
It’s also very time intensive. We were spending 3 hours a day on packaging that would be better spent making jewelry and listing items (or writing this blog post!).
I still think it’s adorable, so I decided to leave it as an option for upgrade. Customers have loved our packaging so far and it’s important to me to make sure they’re happy. You can see more of this option here…
Now, time to unveil the new packaging…drum roll please!
These are eco friendly reusable tins that are perfect for bobby pins, gum, change, currency bills and so much more! They are filled with a little shredded recyclable kraft paper and a sprinkle of pink sequins. Finally, a piece of packaging you want to keep-and reuse again and again! I hope you like the new packaging. While it’s not cheaper on my end, I feel so much better about giving you something that will hopefully not end up in a landfill! Enjoy!
