Every swing tag is made entirely out of recycled paper collected from hotels and businesses here in Bali. Once receiving your Innika piece, carefully cut the tags off and dip the swing tag in water, find a gorgeous pot, bury it a few cm down and ensure it's got loads of sunlight and a bit of water each day. You should start to see sprouts in 14 days.
Innika is here for allll the dressing (both basil and linen alike).
MAILERS & POLY BAGS
We prefer not to use compostable mailers at this stage as we are not sure about the use of GMO ingredients (most are made out of GMO corn) and the long term affects that will have on our beautiful compost that we use to grow our own garden herbs. We do love our compost though!
You'll notice our garments do not come in added plastic, this is because we collect and reuse all poly bags for each production. Our manufacturer supports a truly circular use of plastic where possible, and accepts back the old bags to repack and reuse each season. It's just a short trip from our manufacturer to our office so its a perfect opportunity to reduce any waste at all by re-using what we already have.
We prefer not to use the biodegradable cassava garment bags as sadly they do not keep our natural fabric garments very well in the Bali humidity.
We have sourced garments bags here in Indonesia, to protect your garment on it’s journey to you, and to store your beautiful smocks in when travelling, or to take to the markets when picking up the weekly veggies. If you do not want additional calico bag at checkout do let us know. If you are in Bali we accept these back and will launder and re-use.
TISSUE PAPER, TAP & STICKERS
The eco friendly Tissue Paper, tape and stickers we use have obtained the following certifications:
Acid Free Paper.
Our personalized tissue and stickers are made from cellulose fiber where the active acid pulp is eliminated during processing. It is also lignin- and sulfur-free, meaning that the ink won’t transfer from the tissue, stickers and the paper won’t leave behind any of these chemicals when decomposing.
100% Recycled FSC Paper.
The FSC or Forest Stewardship Council certifies that the paper products that make up our custom packaging tape are sourced from a forest and supply chain that is managed responsibly and sustainably. Furthermore, the tape itself is made from 100% recycled content and is water-activated, meaning that the surface isn’t coated in wax to prevent sticking—another environmental benefit.
FSC Certified Tape.
The FSC or Forest Stewardship Council certifies that the paper products that make up our printed tissue paper and stickers are sourced from a forest and supply chain that is managed responsibly and sustainably. FSC forest management standards are developed at an international level, and are then adapted to individual countries’ legal, social, and geographical settings, through national standards. Our custom packing tape is water-activated, which allows us to print on non-glossy/wax-coated paper. The aforementioned materials (gloss and wax) do not break down in composting conditions, nor are they biodegradable, hence why having water-activated paper tape is a positive for packaging sustainably. You can use a water activated tape dispenser or the sponge provided to activate the stickiness of the tape!
If you prefer not to receive any additional wrapping with your order please do make a note on checkout and we will provide the least packaging possible.
