Recycled, Reused & Plastic Free Packaging

the kind box ethical gift box.

As an eco-friendly, vegan and plastic free online store we believe our packaging is just as important as our products.

"The final straw that led me to open The Kind Store was ordering clean & green beauty online (after hours of research) to only be packaged in heaps of plastic bubble wrap, bags and foam pellets with the majority non-recyclable. At this point I realised just how important it was to ensure the delivery experience was in line with my principles and that currently, there didn't seem to be a plastic free option." Founder, Natasha Tyler.

We therefore select packaging in the following hierarchy:

  • Re-used materials such as newspaper we use for stuffing sourced from family, friends & neighbours, and other paper packaging materials used by our wholesale suppliers. We occasionally re-use potato starch pellets that dissolve in water when received from suppliers or otherwise donate them to a local warehouse business.
  • 'Offcut' materials such as our zig zag paper we use in our gift boxes which is sourced from a UK paper mill and surplus to their needs. It's effectively the offcuts they don't need and would otherwise end up recycled so we get the before that process.
  • Recycled materials such as our Thank You cards made from recycled paper or coffee cups, and our boxes which are made from recycled cardboard, if not re-used from our suppliers.
  • New when we cannot find a suitable alternative however all news items can be re-used or recycled such as our paper tape or printed tissue paper.
  • Never-ever do we use plastic packaging materials.

Our Kind Gift Boxes

Our gift boxes have been carefully curated to ensure your values aren't compromised when sending gifts. Each box and the wrap is made from FSC card and is printed with vegan and non-toxic inks. Your box will be filled with zig-zag offcut paper from a UK paper mill to protect your gifts and gift-wrapped in eco-friendly tissue paper.

We are able to send your gift boxes (or any items) direct to your recipient and can include your own hand-written message. Just leave a note in our comments box at checkout. We never include paperwork or prices within your orders.


We ensure all inks used are vegan and eco-friendly for any packaging materials that we have printed such as our printed boxes, gift tags and Thank You cards.

Our Suppliers

​All of the companies we now work with have been selected because they have the same ethos as us. I work with them to ensure their packaging is minimal and plastic free when they send it to us. We have had a couple of hiccups along the way as it is very difficult to source cardboard boxes plastic free and we have found suppliers are not willing to change for a small company when they are used to dealing with multi-national corporations however I'm now proud to partner with our suppliers.

End of Life

When you receive one of our orders, the entire packaging can be composted, if not recycled. We re-use cardboard boxes from suppliers where we can otherwise use new recyclable and compostable cardboard boxes. Packages are wrapped in used newspaper or other paper material and secured with paper based tape (recyclable and compostable) which is also available to buy here. We always recommend to try and re-use the box before composting/recycling. If you do not have a compost heap in your garden, recycling is your only option (after re-use).


The Kind Store team try and test all products that we stock, so you can be certain that what you are buying is high quality, works well and loved by us. We source all products using our ethos via our sustainable principles, so you can trust that what you are buying is kind to animals, people and planet. We stock items from UK independent makers and suppliers to ensure our products are eco-friendly. Discover hundreds of vegan, natural, sustainable and cruelty-free products.

  • Am here to testify what this great spell caster done for me. i never believe in spell casting, until when i was was tempted to try it. i and my wife have been having a lot of problem living together, she will always not make me happy because she have fallen in love with another man outside our relationship, i tried my best to make sure that my wife leave this woman but the more i talk to her the more she makes me fell sad, so my marriage is now leading to divorce because she no longer gives me attention. so with all this pain and agony, i decided to contact this spell caster to see if things can work out between me and my wife again. this spell caster who was a man told me that my wife is really under a great spell that she have been charm by some magic, so he told me that he was going to make all things normal back. he did the spell on my wife and after 5 days my wife changed completely she even apologize with the way she treated me that she was not her self, i really thank this man his name is Dr ose he have bring back my wife back to me i want you all to contact him who are having any problem related to marriage issue and relationship problem he will solve it for you. his email is oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com he is a man and his great. wish you good time.

  • I’m so happy to share this with you that can read / see this now. When I started trading binary and forex a few months ago, I really didn’t have the necessary tools to trade and I lost a lot until I met Pablo Martinez who taught me all about market psychology as he managed my account for me. Today I am grateful to him for his great offer and help because it really changed my financial situation with an investment capital of $1500 and now I’m earning around $35,500 – $30,000 profits per week. Here is his WhatsApp no: +44 7520 636249 or his email address: pm7234029@gmail.com
