UBU's initiative to reduce packaging waste
Single-use packaging generates a lot of waste - especially now when more and more people are shopping online. Reusing packaging materials is an easy way to extend the lifecycle of materials while reducing the amount of new materials used. And you will likely know, I am very passionate about reducing single-use plastic usage, reducing waste and doing better for the environment.
UBU's default packaging will remain compostable mailers, for now. But for customers who are willing, I will reuse clean packing materials for their orders. These materials will include polymailers, plastic bags and cardboard boxes. Small steps to big change.
Thank you to @package.pals for kicking off this packaging initiative in Singapore and inspiring many small businesses to make the change.
