What’s Up with that Packaging?

Posted on July 29, 2011 in Archives by Katie Oskin


Recently I have been awakened by a conviction of something: recycling!  So how did this happen you might ask?  Well, I think truly this started as a very small thing and has started to grow.  It started out simply…I have used reusable shopping bags since the day I got married, not buying rubbermaid containers, but reusing everything I already buy (sour cream, lunch meat, salsa jars, etc), and even starting a compost pile in the back of the property.

Some of you might think that it is a worthwhile thing to do…others of you may feel that it’s a waste of time.  However, we are now carrying this over to our business…

How are we doing that you might ask.  Well, we buy several things a week online.  Our house becomes a small collecting area for bubble wrap, tissue, envelopes, etc.  For the past 2 weeks, we have been shipping our items in second-hand (or reused) mailing materials.  While we do have new materials, we are going to be reusing our second hand materials first.

Some people may feel that this is “cheapening” my product.  I however am looking at the massive amount of reusable materials that the United States throws into landfills every day.  For me and for my family, we will do our best and do our part to HELP the environment…not the throw away God’s beautiful Earth and treat it as though we don’t care.

So…all that being said, if you’re item that you are buying from us is a GIFT, please know that we can wrap it for you in new materials so that you can give it away straight from the package.    We’re doing our part because we care enough to protect this beautiful planet for our children.

>Having an attractive color packaging will be the most attractive part of any of the miniatures. As we all are that to promote our brand the first and the foremost thing is to have good packaging criteria on a product as much attractive the product packaging will look the much more promotion a brand will have. So be sure that you have the best packaging product and than see how your brand goes to the much more up gradation and promotion. So if we will make a good packaging than we are moving towards good brand connectivity.

>Good for you Katie! I reuse envelopes, the bubbled ones all the time for Etsy shipping! In fact many I've received from purchases are reused too!
