ABOUT US

OUR PACKAGING

Here at GX Handcrafted we are committed to reducing the impact on our environment wherever possible and we’re doing what we can to bring you a product that is packaged both securely and beautifully using either compostable, biodegradable or recycled packaging. (this includes reusing packaging we receive from our suppliers (i.e. Boxes, Bubble wrap etc)

However, due to the nature of the products being shipped, there are certain components to our products and packaging that is non-recyclable and we do what we can to minimise this where possible. We are still on the hunt for more environmentally friendly packaging that is right for us.
