sustainability at cosy elephant
Even as a small online store, we would like to contribute to sustainability with cosy elephant.
Shipping boxes and packaging material are partly collected in the neighborhood and reused. That is why you can sometimes find remnants of old stickers and other logos on our boxes. These boxes are usually in very good condition and do not have to be disposed but can be reused. For this reason, you will still find plastic packaging such as bubble wrap with which we wrap fragile items with us and can therefore not call our shipping completely "plastic-free". However, we do not purchase this plastic packaging separately, but collect it from other shipments instead of disposing it. Unfortunately, a lot of our freight in Asia is still packaged with it, we are working on convincing our partners of other packaging options here as well. But we also reuse this packaging material!
We use environmentally friendly tape and stickers and make sure that the packaging is the right size for each order. A small elephant does not need to be transported in a large cardboard box, so we save cushioning material and CO2 during transport.
We bundle our deliveries from Asia so that we do not receive individual air and sea freight shipments several times a year. This is the reason why it sometimes takes a bit longer to offer new and irresistible elephant accessories for you in our store. We do not fly personally to Asia for every purchase, a great support here are very reliable local partners who are also completely “elephant minded”.
