Alliance for the great lakes
We love our home state, Michigan, and we love to spend time enjoying our greatest resource in the mitten state: the Great Lakes. But, these lakes desperately need our help due to pollution, climate change, invasive species, and other very real threats. We are happy to donate a portion of our profits to help Alliance for the Great Lakes protect and advocate for the Great Lakes.
We’re committed to reducing our environmental impact in as many ways as we can. Here are the current steps we’ve taken to create more environmentally-friendly, responsible products:
We use only vegetable-based inks for our stationery products, which means our greetings cards are completely biodegradable and emit low VOCs during production.
Our stationery products are printed on sustainably sourced paper that is: 100% recycled, 30% post-consumer content, FSC, SFI, and PEFC certified.
Your order will arrive in a recycled box or mailer that can easily be reused or recycled (no plastic here!).
All additional packaging items are totally recyclable and plastic free.
Our fun, paper-based tape used on our shipping boxes can be recycled, unlike typical plastic packaging tape.
We reuse shipping boxes and bags wherever possible. If we do use a "new" box, it is made from recycled materials.
And we’re not stopping there! While we are proud of the efforts we have made to create a more responsible product, we are constantly striving to improve our process, lower our footprint and be better stewards.
Throughout the year, we also keep an eye out for movements and organizations that are doing big things in the world to support through special promotions or campaigns. We don't just stop at our 1% commitment. We end up donating 5% of our sales to movements and organizations throughout each year. Know that no matter what, you’re doing good with the goods you purchase from Wild Lettie!
