Packaging alone accounts for 30% of all waste.
Here is what we're doing to change that.
 

Bougie Bakes Tin
We ship all first orders in one of our cutie patootie reusable tins! This tin is yours to keep.
All reorders will be minimally wrapped. Our bakes are placed in 100% recyclable trays and are wrapped in cellulose derived from wood pulp (sourced from responsibly managed forests) and is 100% compostable and biodegradable. The crinkle & kraft paper we use as padding are also both 100% recycled.

Instead of traditional shipping tape (which is not only non-recyclable but also disqualifies an otherwise recyclable cardboard box), we use water activated tape made with recycled paper. This special tape requires an expensive machine to use, but it’s worth it because it enables us to save so much waste.
Based on the specific carbon footprint of each order, we fund carbon offset projects (like planting trees or building wind farms), ensuring all of our shipping is 100% carbon neutral.
