Eco Friendly

Eco Friendly

Social and environmental responsibility have never been up for debate. When you buy your stationery and gifts from me you are not only choosing to support a small business, you're choosing quality products as well as social and environmental sustainability. We defy convention and embrace the challenge of bringing premium quality to the world with humane and eco-friendly production. Redefining the industry in the process. Just how you ask? Allow me to explain. 

Smart Sassery offsets all carbon emissions for orders we ship. I know this is not a fix, but I am doing my best to try and build a sustainable business. I am unable to reduce all emissions, so I am trying to clean up the ones I am responsible for, and maybe a bit more too. 

I am able to do this through a company called Pachama, short-form of Pachamama, the goddess of the Earth. This is done through forest carbon offsets. Most simply put, planting trees. Forest carbon offsets are one of the most effective solutions to climate disruption. Protecting and restoring forests is the most effective way to recapture CO2 from the atmosphere to solve climate disruption driven by consumption while providing biodiversity and community benefits.

So now every time I ship an order to you, trees will be planted to help offset the carbon emissions caused by the shipping of your order.  

It doesn't stop there. My paper products are printed on FSC-certified paper. With the exception of my museum quality posters. Due to their archival nature, these are the only paper products in my shop that are not FSC Certified. FSC Certification promises the highest standard of responsible forestry.

Those are our biggest actions towards growing a sustainable business. Please understand that we do not stop there. All of our packaging is either recyclable or biodegradable. We recycle in our studio, and it is ran by solar power.  All of the products we sell and the materials we source are made internationally in a no-sweat-shop, humane, and sustainable way. Note Cards have an upgrade option to kraft style envelopes. It's not just because they are cute. They are made with 100% recycled paper. Our Tees are 100% cotton, and dyed using seven times less water and eco-friendly dyes. 

 

 

As our efforts are constantly growing and evolving, this blog post has been updated to reflect those changes.
