We're Making Our Packaging More Sustainable

by Emily Waddell

We're always looking for ways to make Give a Damn Goods more sustainable! I'm excited to announce our tees will now be shipped in Compostable Mailers, woohoo! They are SO cool.

We're getting our compostable mailers from noissue. Noissue’s Compostable Mailers are an amazing plant-based solution made from a combination of corn-based biopolymers. The mailers are certified compostable and break down both in home and commercial composts leaving no harmful residues behind. It's like magic! The mailers are waterproof and incredibly durable...trust me I’ve been using them and testing them out! So your tees will get to you safely. And every time I order more packaging from noissue, they give back by planting a tree, woohoo! So the more orders that are shipped out, the more trees are planted.

After talking to the noissue team and partnering with this innovative business through The Honest Consumer, I can say with confidence they are visionary change-makers who genuinely care about the greater good. They’re taking into consideration aspects of packaging I didn’t even think about and I can’t wait to watch them grow.

While I'd love to ship everything in these compostable mailers, sadly it's too risky to ship our breakable more fragile items at the moment. Most of our boxes and other packaging for the fragile items is recyclable, but we're always looking for ways to be better! But hey for now, Order a tee and see just how cool these sustainable mailers are!

***Due to organic cotton and focus on crafting our shirts with eco-friendly materials, there may be naturally occurring brown speckles within the sold white fabric. This is because our t-shit suppliers do not bleach the organic cotton due to the use eco-conscious nature of the shirts. Naturally occurring brown speckles may be noticeable up close & personal, but not from a distance. See images.
