How is soy-based ink different from regular ink?

Soy-based ink, as the name suggests, is made of soybeans. The resins and waxes used are also natural additives making the ink extremely eco-friendly and biodegradable. Ink is considered soy-based if at least 6-40% of the ink consists of soy. Petroleum-based ink, on the other hand, is made of crude oil. This type of ink is toxic, flammable, and emits volatile organic compounds when it dries.

Is your packaging 100% recyclable?

By using eco friendly packaging materials and avoiding the use of any kind of lamination makes our boxes 100% recyclable. However, most rigid boxes require the use of lamination and because it uses a thin layer of plastic, it is more difficult to properly recycle these types of boxes.

Is my packaging biodegradable or compostable?

All of our packaging is paper based. Our boxes are made of at least 50% post-consumer content and the standard finish we use is a varnish, which makes the packaging biodegradable. Smaller mailer boxes and folding cartons without lamination or add ons (spot UV, foil stamping, etc) can be home composted as well.

Is your packaging eco-friendly?

We're committed to sustainable practices and eco-friendly packaging. All of our materials are paper and cardboard based, and made from at least 50% post-consumer content. We use soy-based ink to print, and for every 200 boxes we produce, we plant 1 tree and gift it to you! Learn more about our sustainability practices here.

What's the difference between biodegradable and compostable?

Biodegradable packaging decomposes in the presence of microorganisms, such as bacteria and fungi, and sunlight over a period of time that is not fixed. Compostable packaging decomposes under the same conditions usually within a period of 90 days.
