Our goal is to eliminate plastic from our packaging which means it’s either glass packaging, biodegradable packaging, post-consumer recycled packaging, or packaging that is able to be recycled appropriately through the proper channels.
Good things come in recyclable packages. Our mailer boxes are made with a combination of post-consumer recycled and SFI certified cardboard, our packaging tape is a paper tape that can be recycled along with our boxes, and we have eliminated the need for filler with our nifty organic cotton ball pouches (our gift to you and your vanity). Your whole shipper goes straight into the recycling bin.
We believe circularity is the future, which is why each product in our line is has unique and specific packaging needs. We’re using 100% post-consumer recycled resin for our Liquid Lip Balm, which is possible because of the advances that have been made in tube technology.
Saie uses UV ink which means that the ink dries when exposed to UV light instead of the air, so they are designed not to bleach.
Our cartons are produced in a facility that are entirely solar powered and we minimize our carbon footprint by sourcing packaging locally.
We’re on a mission to go plastic free with our packaging by 2021 but in the meantime you will still need to recycle our products. Recycling can be confusing and the rules are different in every city so we’re streamlining the process minus the stress. Once you have finished with your Saie products, send it to us and we will direct it to our recycling partner, Terracycle. The good news is our warehouse is super close to the recycling facility so it minimizes our carbon footprint.
While bioplastics can offer as an alternative to using plastic not all bioplastics are compostable, some act just like regular plastic and are not recyclable. Which means that unless you have access to industrial composting the entire batch of recycling that is with your bioplastic container is thrown out. We want to build products that think about what people have access to in their regular homes.
