Packaging

Our packaging philosophy

In an effort to be more eco-conscious, we spent a lot of thought into our packing process to reduce the amount of wasteful packaging used as much as possible. 

 

Updates on packaging wef 1 April 2022: 

Due to increasing time constraints, we made a very difficult decision to switch to using paper wrapping to pack your orders instead of our in-house flip & fold bags. This is to ensure that we are able to fulfill your orders promptly without delays. We thank you for your understanding in this change and we hope that you would join us in our effort and reuse/recycle the packaging materials. :) 

 Any feedback can be sent to info@araytraverses.com. 

 

Packaging materials

We use a mix of padded envelopes, FSC certified natural brown Kraft Paper Envelopes and carton boxes to pack your orders, depending on the items you have purchased. To secure your items, we use a combination of paper wrap and honeycomb kraft paper (a more sustainable option compared to bubble wraps). 

What are your considerations during packing?

1. Protection of your items 

2. Reduction of any potential waste in packaging materials 

What can I do to join your eco-conscious efforts? 

Thank you for joining us to build a friendlier environment! If you do not mind receiving the items in clean reused mailing envelopes or boxes, drop us a note "reused packaging" in the order instruction text box when you are making the order (at the cart page). We will try to match your order and the available reused packaging we have on hand.  

Below are some ideas how to reuse the packaging materials you received:
