When I was ideating SAVAMAC, I knew that eco-friendly everything was absolutely essential. I love me some Mother Earth, and I know that I need to do her proud.
It's no secret that e-commerce is taking over the world. With more online shopping comes more shipping. I thought meticulously about the way our shipping (and existence) would affect mother nature.
SAVAMAC's Shipping Materials
It starts with the shipping: What materials can we use to be as eco-friendly as humanly possible?

We use 100% eco-friendly materials for all of our packaging and shipping supplies. We strive to stick with sustainable materials our planet and people will love!
You’ll find most of our shipping materials are from Ecoenclose. This is because all of their materials are recycled, recyclable and/or biodegradable! Our shipping boxes, corrugated bubble (protects your goods), and paper shred (void fill, also protects your goods) is all 100% recycled! We use custom polypropylene tape with our signature logo to secure all of our packages.
SAVAMAC's Product Packaging
If not glass, our products are packaged in PET—polyethylene terephthalate, a highly recyclable plastic. Additionally, we use Fiberstone labels (courtesy of Leapin' Lizards) on all of our products! Fiberstone is water/oil-resistant stone paper consisting of 80% calcium carbonate (a base mineral and inorganic compound) and 20% polyethylene resin. In English? "Incredibly environmentally friendly."
Our Work With NoIssue
Within our first few months of existence, we became a part of The Noissue Eco Alliance. Noissue's mission is to contribute to global reforestation one tree at a time. The program is an inspiring way for brands and stores to show their consumers they are dedicated to being eco-friendly in as many ways as possible. The NoIssue Eco Alliance has three frameworks for their packaging: compostable, recycled, and reusable. Our Noissue collaboration is our pride and joy! We ship certain products in Noissue's biodegradable mailers, stick all packages with their FSC compostable shipping labels, and we include a recycled FSC mix Thank You card and biodegradable stickers in every single SAVAMAC shipment!
