Environmentally conscious packaging at Naken Interiors
At Naken Interiors we pride ourselves on our values. Decreasing our environmental impact is one of our main priorities in our mission statement setting us apart from our competitors. One of our main focuses is to reduce plastic and other non-recyclable waste when packaging your orders.
Following on from our environmental policy, we are incredibly conscious of our responsibility to the environment in terms of our carbon footprint and ensuring that we try to avoid non-recyclable plastic waste where possible. We are now giving you the option to have your products packaged using recycled or reused packagings such as cardboard boxes and paper in the checkout stage of the shopping process on our website (see below:)
If you opt to have your order packaged using sustainable packaging, this may include the following:
Reused or recycled boxes
We receive hundreds of cardboard boxes monthly by both suppliers and brands that are often disregarded by our warehouse team as they often feature excess tape, stickers, branding and labels put on by our suppliers however they are perfectly suitable for ensuring that orders are protected during transit. Reused cardboard boxes may have small cosmetic defects such as marks, scuffs and very small tears however these are all insignificant when it comes to their ability to protect your order and the environmental impact of having to dispose of the boxes as they are deemed 'unfit for purpose' due to their imperfect appearance. If you choose 'yes' to have your order packaged using sustainable materials, your order will be boxed in a reused cardboard box when possible. We would like to emphasize that all Naken Interiors orders that are packaged using sustainable reused cardboard boxes will be packaged incredibly well by our warehouse team just as they would be if you were to receive your order packaged in a new cardboard box.
Reused or recycled packaging
All of the products sold at Naken Interiors are of luxury quality with many of our products consisting of fragile materials. If you opt to have your order packaged using sustainable packaging, bubble wrap will often be replaced with recycled paper that has been used to package deliveries from our suppliers where possible. Paper is recyclable and decomposable, unlike bubble wrap. Extremely fragile orders may be sent out using reused bubble wrap to ensure that your order is delivered with utmost safety and protection from damage caused in transit, however, this will only for products that consist of glass and fragile materials. If bubble wrap is needed to ensure the safety of your order (yet you have chosen to have your order to be sustainably wrapped) it will be used as sparingly as possible. Reused and recycled brown paper is just as effective as bubble wrap as it will be scrunched up and used in bulk inside the sustainable reused cardboard box for utmost padding.
If you opt to have your order packaged using sustainable materials, we will replace plastic brown tape with self-adhesive kraft paper tape. Unlike plastic tape, kraft paper tape is environmentally friendly due to its biodegradable quality and will, therefore, help us to achieve our mission of reducing our impact on the environment. Kraft brown paper tape is ideal for packaging all orders and will securely hold together our reused cardboard boxes, wallpaper cylinders and other forms of sustainable boxing. Please note: when opting for sustainable packaging, your order may arrive with plastic tape on the re-used cardboard box from when the box was originally sent to us. We only reuse plastic packaging, we never buy it in unless you do not opt to have your order sustainably packaged.
