E C O
Crossed Paths is based on a few core beliefs. At the heart of those beliefs is a focus on how we can help the environment. We believe in being environmentally conscious and responsible at every possible opportunity and do our best to do our part in helping save our planet. Our branded tissue paper and mailers are by 'NOISSUE' who run the 'Eco-Packing Alliance programme. Eco-Packaging Alliance is a great way to contribute to global reforestation. All our orders through the programme means noissue will plant trees for us in areas of need, meaning we are also awarded our eco-programme badge.
"Contributing to global reforestation one tree at a time."
Our apparel and accessories are sent out in 100% Compostable Mailers - a great step towards sustainable packaging, and can be composted both at home and commercially. Our compostable mailers are made from a combination of PBAT, a bio based polymer which is compostable, and PLA which is made up of plant materials such as regular ﬁeld corn and wheat straw. The use of PLA makes up barely 0.05% of the annual global corn crop, making it an incredibly low-impact resource. The bags are certiﬁed by all three industry certiﬁers; TUV Austria, BPI and Dincerto, meeting American, European, International and Australian standards – including certiﬁcations for your domestic home compost. To gain these certiﬁcations, the product must break down within 90 days in commercial compost and 180 days in domestic compost conditions, including worm farm compost. After degradation, they must leave no harmful residues behind.
"Break it down with us."
Our products are wrapped in noissue branded tissue paper. These sheets use soy-based ink which is more environmentally friendly and recyclable. The acid-free paper is paper that is infused in water yields a neutral or basic pH (7 or slightly greater). It is also lignin- and sulfur-free. Whilst we cannot be 100% eco friendly we can do our part to ensure, where possible, we can do our part.
It is 2019. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Fortune 500 company, or a boutique shop owner, we should all be striving to be
