I wanted to dive a little deeper to explain the packaging we chose and why it is important to us in our mission to be more sustainable.
The kraft brown Flouwer Co. Artisanal Cracker box is FDA/USDA compliant for use with food and is made of 100% recycled material. If nothing else, please be sure to recycle the box and the paper label. However, if you feel like being a little crafty, we fully encourage the re-use of the boxes. With a little wrapping paper, you can use them to wrap a small gift. Or, you can use them to hold your own homemade baked goodies. My kids love to decorate old boxes and use them to hold their trinkets or as houses for their roly polies and lady bugs - poor bugs….
Keep us posted if you come up with a use for the cracker boxes that we must hear about!
Also, the inner bag isn’t plastic, but instead is completely biodegradable cellophane made from wood cellulose fibers sourced with sustainable forestry principles. The cellophane bags are certified biodegradable, compostable and made carbon zero. In a home composting environment, these bags will typically break down in a few weeks. I don’t know about you, but that is something that we feel very, very good about!
