Whilst broxapparel is a small but growing new e-commerce menswear start-up, it doesn’t mean that it can’t begin, as it means to go on, by operating in as eco-friendly a manner as possible. This is why we have chosen a company called noissue to supply the tissue paper that we are using to package some of our products.
The company noissue continually strives to be a leader in design, innovation, and sustainability. All their ink is soy-based, and their tissue paper is completely acid free and FSC Certified, providing businesses like ours with a premium packaging solution without harming the environment.
Soy ink is a kind of ink made from soybeans. As opposed to traditional petroleum-based ink, soy-based ink is more environmentally friendly, might provide more accurate colors, and makes it easier to recycle paper.
‘FSC’ stands for Forest Stewardship Council, an organization that works to promote the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide. The Forest Stewardship Council ensures customers such as ourselves have the option to choose forest products like paper and wood that have been sourced in an environmentally-friendly, socially responsible, and economically viable manner.
Acid-free paper is paper that is infused in water which yields a neutral or basic pH (7 or slightly greater). It is also lignin and sulfur-free.
Being environmentally conscious is a value that all businesses can aspire to even small new e-commerce outfits like ours. Our company is also part of what is called the Eco-Packaging Alliance which is a great way to contribute to global reforestation and show off our company’s eco-friendly packaging! This is why, when we placed the order for the tissue paper, they will plant trees for the company in areas of need. As proud members of the alliance we are now displaying our eco-alliance sticker on our website.
