Packaging rant

Posted on


Most of us try to avoid packaging as much as possible: just stuffing a carrier bag in our handbag means we usually can refuse the plastic bags offered in shops. But sometimes, there is no getting away from it: the other day, my boyfriend bought some work shirts. Each of them came in 1 plastic bag, with 8 plastic pins, 1 large piece of cardboard and the collar was held with 1 stip of cardboard and 1 strip of plastic. I possibly might have forgiven all that waste if the shirts came already ironed, but no! Good luck if you took a shirt out, tried it on, find out you have to return it and had to fold it all again.

So at The Really Eco Baby Shop, we keep all the boxes/large envelopes we receive and use them again. Don't worry, your order will be packed very carefully but it means we do not overcharge our customers for expensive packaging we had to buy. Our delivery fee stays low and we throw away less.

On this note, a little tip for Christmas: wrap your presents in nice magazines: choose pages related to the recipients: perfume ads for mum, toys ads for kids,... they will look really pretty!
