Bulky, excessive packaging and shipping materials? Why those words are a thing of the past! See ya later, skidaddle, vamoose! We’ve packed up our wasteful ways and have shipped them out, for-ev-er. From now on, receiving your ModCloth purchase in the mail will be one of the most rewarding shipping experiences in retail, for both you and the environment!
We’re setting the bar high–our new kraft-brown shipping boxes are made of 100% post-consumer recycled content. This post-consumer material is unique in that it is an end product that has completed its life cycle as a consumer item, which would have otherwise been disposed of as solid waste. Most retailers today incorporate just a ratio of eco-friendliness into their shipping methods by settling for a 30/70 split of recycled and new materials.
Oh yeah– and our new eco-friendly boxes look pretty fly too! In addition to our newly recycled packaging, the lovely logo and interior design will be printed using waste-free, biodegradable Eekoflex ink. Unlike petroleum or soy based inks, Eekoflex ink can be remade into usable product! How’s that for a colorful future?
This change in our supply chain will drastically make for a more eco-friendly future at ModCloth, and worldwide with every item that ships. When your first order in new packaging arrives, let us know what you think by leaving us a comment on this post, on our Facebook Page, or by Tweeting at us!
