A fact we could not ignore at Peace Lily was that 5 billion pounds of gift returns end up in landfills (but due to poor waste management in landfills, most waste ends up in our natural environments). We believe that even small efforts can make a big impact.
Here are some of the ways we're doing our part to promote sustainability and reduce waste:
🌱Our gifts are thoughtfully crafted using recycled or eco-friendly materials, underscoring our commitment to circularity.
🌱We partner with local artisans to minimize our carbon footprint. In some cases, they're located just a stone's throw away!
🌱We take a holistic approach to gift-giving by using eco-friendly packaging. This ensures that every aspect of your gift aligns with our sustainability goals.
🌱By choosing our eco-friendly gifts, you can show support for a greener future.
🌱Our gifts are not only environmentally friendly, but also thoughtful and memorable. They show that you value both the recipient and the planet.
We may not be perfect, but we're proud to do our part in creating a more sustainable future.
As a gift company that prioritises sustainability and circularity, we encourage thoughtful gifting by considering the necessity of the gift, its provenance and supply chain, and its recyclability. It's important to keep in mind the following before you decide on a gift:
🌱Does the recipient actually need the gift? Will it be appreciated, or will it end up being wasted?
🌱If you're unsure about how the gift will be received, it might be best to skip it altogether.
🌱If you do decide to purchase a gift, take into account the item's supply chain and provenance. What materials were used in its production? What waste was created?
🌱Finally, consider if the item and its packaging can be reused, recycled, or disposed of in an eco-friendly way after it has served its purpose.
It's important we consider the impact of our consumption and make mindful purchasing choices. Let's unleash our inner eco-warrior and make a difference!
