At 7Fiveyards, we recognise the profound impact that commerce can have on the environment. Motivated by a deep sense of responsibility, we are committed to minimising our impact on the environment and contributing positively to the well-being of our planet. Our mission is to work towards integrating sustainability into every aspect of our business, from sourcing products and packaging materials to reducing energy consumption and promoting eco-friendly practices where possible.

Strategies we have implemented to reduce packaging waste

Right-sized packaging

Using packaging that is appropriately sized for the product. Avoid oversized boxes, as they result in excess material and waste.

Biodegradable and recyclable materials

Where possible, we opt for packaging materials that are biodegradable or easily recyclable. This includes using cardboard, paper, and other materials that have a lower environmental impact. Seeking certifications like FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) for paper products for overall product sustainability.

Digital receipts

We now only offer digital email receipts instead of printed ones to reduce paper waste.

Reusing packaging

We reuse product packaging. This can include boxes and void fills to reduce waste, promoting a circular economy.

Continuous Improvement

We continue to have a lot of work ahead of us as a small, independently run business, and we constantly evaluate and revise our packing procedures. As they become accessible and affordable, we are searching for ways to advance and implement fresh, more sustainable solutions.

As you know, reducing packaging waste is a collective effort that involves individuals, businesses, and policymakers working together to create a more sustainable future.
