Boden’s shipping boxes are created from recycled materials and are also recyclable. Paper and paperboard materials are easily recyclable and proper handling of the recycling process ensures that more paper packaging can be made. Mailer boxes are great for shipping and delivering your products and provide a great unboxing experience. Other sustainability efforts that Boden is enacting are shipping bags made from 80% recycled materials and catalog papers made from 100%  PEFC certified paper, which means that "it comes from sustainably managed forests, controlled and recycled sources."

LANIUS’ cardboard boxes are made from recycled cardboard and are reused three to four times. Their shipping boxes are made from 70% recycled material and come in many different shapes and sizes. Customized sizing for packaging is great for using only as little material as required. LANIUS also minimizes printing by sending invoices and receipts digitally. Another initiative is their #NOPLASTIC campaign where they reduce the number of polybags and no longer use newly made plastics.

BTKA Designs’ no-plastic packaging is made from paper materials. Their mailer bags are tear-proof, splashproof, and contain zero plastic. Large orders are packaged in cardboard boxes and sealed with paper-based tape. BTKA Designs’ paper wrapping has unique and fun designs that contribute to a distinct unboxing experience. A great way to fill extra space in your custom packaging is void fillers. Fillers protect your products and keep them in place during shipping.
