Being eco friendly isn’t a fad. It is a way of life that we have embraced here at Accents et cetera for years. The concept of our business is creating gifts from locally made food and other items. While nice looking packaging is important to making the gifts look good, we utilize recycled content products (tissue paper, boxes, ribbon), recyclable and compostable packaging (biodegradable cellophane, boxes) and reusable items (containers such as ceramic bowls, bows, packing materials) The spa line we carry is made with natural ingredients. We carry many natural and organic foods. Some of our baby items are made with organic cotton and we have stuffed animals made entirely out of recycled plastic water bottles. Gift containers include canvas bags, bamboo plates, baskets placed inside a European string shopping bag, bowls made from tree roots, and pots made from recycled cornhusks.
Additionally, we provide emailed invoices and receipts, print double sided, have an online instead of a print catalogue, reuse boxes and packing materials, recycle paper, plastic, and glass, and compost paper towels, tissues, floral and food scraps. Most of our lighting is flourescent, and we turn off all of our lights and computers at night to save energy. We are continually finding other ways to reduce waste and energy and we welcome your suggestions.
Being environmentally responsible is essential. We promise to provide gifts that are not only delicious and beautiful, but also gentle to the planet. Even though most eco friendly options wholesale for more than other products, we are committed to having affordable gift options that have a smaller carbon footprint.
We use Staples 100% recycled content copy paper, Bright Green brand(from Safeway) 100% recycled content bathroom tissue, paper towels, and facial tissues. Marcal Small Steps products are also good.
