Giving back to the planet through sustainable practices
We believe sustainable products need to be more accessible
Shopping responsibly begins with being able to guarantee that what you buy is eco-friendly. That's why we promise to be as transparent as possible in terms of how and where our products are made, so you know exactly what you're getting when you place an order with Twigs.
At Twigs, we are committed to sustainable practices throughout our entire process, from sourcing recycled paper to printing with eco-friendly inks and shipping our orders in post-consumer waste packaging. We believe that it is important to do our part to protect the environment and reduce our carbon footprint, and we are constantly looking for ways to reduce our impact and improve our sustainability.
We encourage our customers to read more about our eco-friendly practices or visit us on social media where we offer helpful tips for going green. We hope that by sharing our knowledge, we can all make a difference in preserving our planet for future generations.
Materials we use
- Paper: We only use 100% PCW paper that is FSC Certified. FSC certification ensures that responsible forestry methods are used for sourcing and production. Rather than using carbon or nuclear energy, our paper is produced with biogas, which is the energy released from decomposing landfill waste that is captured and used for production at the paper mill. This reduces CO2 output by thousands of tons each year.
- Printing: While traditional printing use toxic inks that contain VOC’s (volatile organic compounds), our high-quality digital printers use water-based inks or other non-toxic inks to keep our air and water free of unwanted pollutants. This printing method ensures that our process is environmentally friendly as possible.
Where we produce
We take pride in sourcing all of our materials from within the United States and Canada. This allows us to ensure that our quality and sustainability standards are always met. Most of our products are printed in New York, and all orders are shipped from our location in New Jersey. This allows us to provide our customers with the highest quality products and the best possible service. Small businesses are an incredibly important part of our economy, and we are committed to supporting them whenever possible. We understand the unique challenges that small businesses face, and we are proud to be able to help them thrive.
We've gone plastic-free and only use recycled kraft packaging for shipping. Our packaging is sturdy and 100% PCW (post-consumer waste), which means it's fully recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable. So you can feel good knowing that your purchase is not only eco-friendly, but also helping to reduce waste and protect our planet.
