We are PROUD that 100% of our packaging is created from recycled materials. 80% of our packaging is paper & cardboard, and we're trying to get it to 100%.
We always encourage re-using our packaging, if possible. If it's not possible to re-use, please recycle our packaging.
Why is eco-friendly packaging important?
Packaging created from recycled materials, and that CAN be recycled again, reduces waste on our planet. It creates a FULL CIRCLE - no new materials need to be created when you can create something from old materials.
Therefore impact on the environment is the least it can be.
In this day and age, minimising your impact on the environment as a business should be a priority. And it's definitely ours.
We are giving back to Mother Nature by planting trees from each sale we get. That's right! One tree per sale.
How? At the end of each month, DreamyMoons donates 1 dollar from EACH sale to a non profit organisation One Tree Planted.
One Tree Planted partner with carefully selected reforestation organizations in 4 regions: North America, Latin America, Africa, and Asia.
The time between our donation and the actual tree planting will vary depending on the region we have chosen and the time of year. Planting usually happens during the rainy season, when the soil provides optimum conditions for tree survival.
This is exactly how your $1 will be used to plant trees:
$.50 -.85 for one tree sapling to be grown at a nursery $.20 - $.30 per tree to be planted $.08 - $.20 per tree average with transport costs, material costs $.10 - $.22 ongoing maintenance of trees $.12 - $.15 operating costs $.03 - $.05 credit card processing fees, transaction costs
When DreamyMoons planting session takes place, One Tree Planted will send us an update with photos and information provided by their reforestation partners. This will include details such as the tree species planted, expected survival rates, community engagement, and ecological benefits.
Why would you NOT want to plant trees?! Working with One Tree Planted allows DreamyMoons offset carbon emissions from shipping orders all over the world, and be a part of something greater. It feels damn good to give back to the Earth. Not only do reforestation projects help the planet, but they give jobs to local communities and provide new homes for the animals.
