I'm actually not trying to 'influence' anyone? I simply observed a huge amount of humans wanting to be more proactive about their environment and a large majority of them feeling helpless and confused because they didn't know how?
My intention is to reduce that confusion. I hope to provide informative and accessible starting steps that make beginning the journey of Reducing Single Use Items achievable....to simplify an action most people already wanted but weren't sure where to start?
My beef is not about plastic, or at least not all plastic, and definitely not only plastic. My beef is with the ridiculous amount going to landfill, the waste....and to be honest my personal beef is about the waste in every aspect of our lives, not just landfill....the waste of talent because of fear, the waste of time spent on things that don't make you happy, the waste of connection though judgement, the waste of trying to be instead of being, the time spent on blaming instead of acting, or the tireless worry given to things out that you can have no affect on....basically any energy flowing towards the negative that could be spent on the positive.
You may so 'no' to a bag for that new T-Shirt at the checkout, which is great...but what packaging waste has already been discarded in that T-Shirts lifetime?
According to China’s State Post Bureau, more than 31 billion parcels were delivered in 2016, a year-on-year increase of 51.4%. The average daily processing volume of express delivery reached 85 million pieces, the maximum daily processing capacity exceeded 250 million pieces.
So came our mission to provide simple, and accessible starting steps so every home can begin their journey of Reducing Single Use Items..... let's all start to Live Less Out Of Habit and More Out Of Intention!
So the answer to your question is no, we do not drop ship. No single supplier has the quality that we require or stocks all of the items we sell. In fact, each of our suppliers specializes in their own specific field, like stainless steel, bamboo, etc. For example, if you ordered one of our starter packs, you would receive five separate parcels from five different suppliers. This would produce a lot of excess packaging and waste, and that just isn't sustainable.
