Our Commitment To Sustainability
You can be assured that The Waste-Free Home is focused on being as sustainable as possible in every aspect of our business. Here are some of the practices that we employ to try to be good.
We advocate for conscious consumerism but we don’t expect it to all to be on you. We work as a conscious company too. From the products we choose, the way in which we make our own products, to the companies that we choose to work with.
PLASTIC FREE SHIPPING
We always ship to you 100% plastic free. Everything we pack in is either reused, reusable, recyclable or compostable. We use one, dedicated courier company instead of getting multiple different couriers to arrive each day. We have built a relationship with that company and pack to a specific pick up time in order for our courier to pick up in bulk and have fewer trips in a week, therefore reducing traffic.
Every shred of soft plastics we receive is collected and sent off for recycling. We reuse boxes and packaging where possible before recycling, and we have a commercial compost bin for anything and everything that we can’t compost ourselves. We even offer commercial compost returns for those that can't access a commercial facility.
We are thrilled to be able to facilitate the CarbonClick button. So, if you wish to help offset the carbon emissions associated with your order you can do so very easily at checkout. Learn more about where your donations are being spent here.
SUPPORTING THE FUTURE
Children are the future. They are the ones that will carry on our work and we are committed to supporting them to get there. We have committed some of our profit to help nurture these children. We do that proudly through the great charities KidsCan and Canteen. Learn more about supporting kids in need here.
