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.

Vegan

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.

  • In recent times,technology has proven to be more sophisticated and just like any other currency that can be stolen or lost, crypto and other digital assets has proven to be more difficult to recover but not impossible, and just like searching for any other monetary currency,you need a trustworthy and honest agency or personnel who can track and recover the value lost or stolen, in my case I hired easyreclaimer@ gmailcom, they followed the blockchain and was able to recover over 247k of my stolen funds within a couple of weeks. The fees for the services I received was fair and communication was excellent

  • USE A CERTIFIED RECOVERY COMPANY-OPTIMISTIC HACKER GAIUS TO RETRIEVE STOLEN CRYPTOCURRENCY.

    Through the testimony of scam victims, which is precisely how I learned about OPTIMISTIC HACKER GAIUS, I had the pleasure of experiencing the outstanding services of the company. Until a few days ago, I never thought it was possible to get back cryptocurrency that was lost.

I think hiring OPTIMISTIC HACKER GAIUS to assist me recover my lost cryptocurrencies was one of the best moves I’ve ever done. The OPTIMISTIC HACKER GAIUS team played a critical role in this process, for which I will always be grateful. Absent their knowledge and assistance, I would have believed my money was gone forever.
