We are celebrating another small step in the right direction: our new packing materials just arrived! Every Fire Cider order will now be wrapped in recycled, recyclable and reusable cushioned brown paper. Goodbye plastic bubble wrap!
We are still using compostable food starch packing peanuts, which you can easily compost at home. Only now, the peanuts are wrapped in a biodegradable pillow, so they are contained and easy to re-use or toss into the compost. Don't you wish every business used earth friendly packaging?
It's never too soon to start or to at least start bugging your local haunts to make the switch! Coming later this fall: 100% post-consumer custom Fire Cider boxes and paper tape. Yeah, paper tape instead of plastic: it's stronger and recyclable, how cool is that?
In about a month everything from our Fire Cider bottles, to our promotional materials, to all of our shipping materials will be recycled, recyclable, re-usable and/or home compostable. Oh yeah! Love your Mother Earth and have a happy Labor Day weekend!
