Hope everyone had a nice Earth Day, I certainly did! Getting mentioned in two blogs didn’t hurt either. For companies like mine, everyday is Earth Day, but I have to admit, the celebration made me question some of my practices too.

As an environmentally friendly company, but one that also cares about aesthetics, I am questioning some of my packaging and presentation. 

I have a small hang tag made from 100% recycled paper and the smallest plastic tag barb I could find.

However, when shipping out the bags, it seems strange to put neat-os directly in their packing envelope (which is also made from 100% recycled paper). So I bought some 100% recycled tissue paper to wrap around the bags. I was using recycled paper ribbon too, but decided to stop using it. Since the customer gets a email invoice, I don’t include an invoice/receipt which seems weird too.

How plain and simple can we get without being too plain and simple?
