Purple might be Savvy Company’s favourite colour, but we love to go green too. Reducing, reusing, and recycling are important to us when we send you the REALLY good stuff. I am a first-year student at the University of Ottawa, studying global environmental impacts and have been working with the Savvy Team behind the scenes for almost a year now.
If you have received a Savvy Care Package in the past few months, chances are I helped to pack it! At Savvy Company, we reuse boxes that we receive shipments of wine and cider in, to extend their life and prevent them from going straight to waste. You may also see older editions of the Savvy Inside Scoop wrapped around bottles in your next Savvy Care Package, as we recycle them as packaging!
At the end of a box’s life, we break it down and make sure its components end up in the proper recycling bins. A few of our long-time Savvy Fans have already caught on to our reducing and reusing efforts, and kindly return their boxes to us after they unpack its delicious contents. If you’re in the Ottawa area, and interested in returning your boxes to be reused you can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will be delighted to help!
