We’ve recently taken another step toward more sustainable packaging. As of May, we use packaging made of post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics for all apparel orders shipped from our in-house facilities. PCR plastics are made from everyday items that are recycled, like plastic bags and bottles. Most of our PCR packaging is made from shopping bags and wrapping films.

The amount of PCR in our packaging depends on the facility, but it’s at least 50% for the outside (white or grey) packaging and at least 30% for inside (clear) bags that are used for multi-item shipments. PCR packaging does not look drastically different from virgin plastic bags, and it protects the products just as effectively.

We’ll continue to explore more earth-friendly options in the future.
