Something you should know
At Simply Gourmand we care about our (and your) environmental impact so I thought I should update you on how we have come to pack orders with that in mind.
Our packing is both protective and as eco-friendly as possible. Fragile items are wrapped in bubbles while non-fragile items (with now 10 years of experience we know the difference well!) are simply positioned snugly in the box. Voids are filled with kraft paper, recycled cardboard, recycled air pillows and/or organic corn starch packing peanuts that decompose in water leaving no toxic waste. These are details but I think they matter.
Please contact me if you have any questions or feedback about this subject or if you simply would like to be involved in the next steps of this conversation. I look forward to exchanging with you!
