#ZeroWastePackaging

By Corey Breneisen

Rae Marie has reached yet another cross roads in our journey. Our commitment to sustainable living and promoting a zero waste lifestyle has us thinking about packaging for our products. Currently we use recyclable plastic, tins and cardboard. Our labels are made from craftpaper and are nontoxic. However, we know we can do even better when it comes to minimizing our carbon footprint.

We have been on the search for biodegradable and compostable containers to replace the plastic we currently use. At events and markets we have done away with the soap boxes and offer our bars in their natural state. (For re-selling with our retail partners, we continue to use the boxes for ease of transport and to extend the shelf-life, but we are considering alternatives—canvas bags, perhaps?)

Our vision is to become a #ZeroWaste Brick and Mortar Store, where you, the customer, will bring your own containers to refill. All of these ideas sound wonderful to us, but we would like to bounce them off of you. If you could please take a moment to fill out the quick survey below, we would appreciate the feedback. Your input matters to us, and ultimately helps us to meet your needs and address your concerns.

Thank you!
