From products to shipping, from packaging to working conditions.
Not only do we encourage green lifestyles with Greenstory-essentials, we also look inwards at our impact as a company. GreenTeam uses recycled paper shipping materials such as envelopes and even the label on which your address is printed.
Recycling of a tonne of paper can save 7,000 gallons of water, 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, and 4,000 kW of energy – The Guardian
