Eco Friendly Packaging for Wood Stickers



Here at Dust City, we always strive to be as eco-friendly as possible with our products. With that, we also wanted to ensure that all of the packaging that our products come in is equally as eco-friendly! From the hang tag, all the way to the shipping box, we try to make our impact as little as possible. Want to know what makes our packaging so environmentally friendly? Keep reading!

All of our Wood Sticker hang tags are printed on recycled content paper.

Shortly after we became a company, we began to look into packaging for our stickers. We wanted to make sure that our products were not only eco-friendly, but that our packaging was as well. We linked up with a local print shop who was able to source us recycled content paper to print our hang tags on. This paper is made from a combination of both recycled material as well as non-recycled material. You might be thinking to yourself, "Well that's not environmentally friendly..." Fret not! All of the non-recycled paper material is sustainably sourced and Forest Stewardship Council certified. This means that the trees are grown specifically for the purpose of making paper and that they are grown in a manner that is sustainable for many generations to come without harming the environment.

Each of our stickers come with a protective hang tag backer printed on recycled paper.

In addition, they come packaged in a protective, biodegradable, cellophane sleeve.

All of our Wood Stickers come packaged in a biodegradable cellophane sleeve.

People constantly ask us, "How can you be an eco-friendly product when your stickers come packaged in a plastic sleeve?" The truth is, it's NOT PLASTIC, it's biodegradable cellophane! Cellophane is a great alternative to plastic. It has many of the beneficial properties such as clarify and structural strength, however, cellophane can biodegrade. Unlike plastic, cellophane is made from a plant based material called cellulose which is fully compostable. This allows for the packaging to break down over time, leaving no remnants. Plastic on the other hand, breaks down into tiny plastic micro-pieces that ultimately end up polluting our earth and oceans.

All of our Wood Stickers ship in sustainably sourced boxes and mailers.

Once we had our packaging nailed down, we wanted to find an eco-friendly way to ship our products. After a bit of research, we ran into another local Colorado company who specializes in sustainable packaging, Eco Enclose. Based in Louisville, Colorado, Eco Enclose offers everything from boxes, to mailers, to packaging tape, all sustainably sourced and environmentally friendly! They supply our shipping boxes and mailers that all of our Wood Stickers go out in. With that, you can rest easy knowing your stickers are as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible!
