Here at Arete we work closely with our suppliers to reduce the amount of packaging we receive with our goods. We also do our utmost to limit our waste and find a new use for anything we may no longer need, before resorting to its disposal.
Given the nature of our business, the elimination of all packaging is impossible. However, we are working hard to not simply rely on the recycling of our packaging, but instead look for people who can make use of it after us. It may require a little extra effort, but we wouldn’t have it any other way!
We do this not only with packaging, but also with office furniture we no longer need, and old stock we can no longer sell.
We’re not alone in this, many like us choose to find new homes for the things they don’t need! If you haven’t tried it yet, we encourage you to! There are loads of fb groups set up exactly for this, and you never know who is looking for that very item you were about to throw away.
It’s fun, promise!
