Learn How to Shop Sustainably
In today’s environmentally responsible climate, consumers have high expectations for products, and so do we. That is why we now offer our So’Pure collection that features plant-based, renewable materials from the products to the packaging.
But it’s not enough for businesses to provide sustainable products, consumers must learn how to shop sustainably.
So, here are six different things you should look for when shopping:
Many people tend to only think about the sustainability of the actual product they’re buying, instead of shifting their focus to the packaging. After all, it is the packaging that is going to be thrown out immediately and end up in a landfill.
So, whenever possible, look for products that come in recycled or recyclable packaging.
Each item from our So’Pure collection comes in chic, brown boxes manufactured from recyclable materials.
Organic farming eliminates the need for pesticides, herbicides, and other harmful chemicals that pollute the Earth. These pollutants can cause soil erosion and disrupt various organisms’ natural habitats. Therefore, you should strive to buy organic products, whether you’re shopping for food or fashion.
Buying organic is not only better for the environment, but it also produces higher quality items. The comforter from our So’Pure line is made from 100% organic cotton and corn fiber, creating the softess blanket for your baby. So, there is no question that you are providing the best of the best for your little one.
Even the original Sophie la Girafe teether is made from 100% pure rubber collected from Hevea trees!
Now, many people shop for the lowest prices. While this is initially good for your wallet, it often means you will be opening your checkbook soon enough to purchase a replacement.
The main goal is to reduce as much waste as possible. Therefore, if you are able to purchase a product that doesn’t have any additional packaging, great! Otherwise, look for the recycle symbol.
Buy in Bulk
Buying things in bulk, especially when online shopping, not only saves you money but also helps the environment. Bulk purchases save the manufacturer packaging and the distributor fuel, which in return, saves the environment unnecessary pollutants.
Calisson Toys offers free shipping for orders that exceed $49 so you can make the most out of your shopping spree, guilt free.
Shop for Long-lasting Products
Now, many people shop for the lowest prices. While this is initially good for your wallet, it often means you will be opening your checkbook soon enough to purchase a replacement. This means, in the long-run you could end up spending more money than if you just invested in a quality product.
Calisson Toys prides itself on providing customers with high quality products that are made to last. Whether it’s a matching outfit from Calisson Little Royals or the legendary Sophie la Girafe teether, you can rest assured you are getting the best that money can buy.
Choose Bio-based Products
Some manufacturers make it easy for eco-friendly consumers by labeling their products with their certification.
For example, Sophie la Girafe’s So’Pure collection received the “OK Biobased” certificate, which is easy to find on every item in the line. This certificate means that each product was thoroughly inspected by the independent laboratory TUV Austria to ensure it is composed of 100% biobased materials.
And there you have it! Six different ways you as a consumer can shop sustainably.
