Manifest Magic sends all card deck orders out in cardboard shipping boxes, filled with bio-degradable packing peanuts, made from corn starch. If you run the peanuts under cold water, they dissolve! How cool.
Let's talk about carbon offset for delivery! We ship all our packages via Australia Post, who have just recently made all their deliveries carbon neutral.
On top of that, you can rest easy knowing that all our card decks are ethically printed in Australia, on responsibly sourced paper - FSC® Certified Paper, to be exact. Most card decks you see on the market are printed internationally, with very little transparency regarding ethics (this is usually why they're a lot cheaper than our decks as well). It is important to Manifest Magic to keep our manufacturing local, and within Australia.
For each card deck purchased, we pay for 1 tree to be planted. At the current moment, Manifest Magic has been able to donate 1900+ trees, since August 2020.
If you see any bubble wrap in your order, it has been re-used. We do not purchase any new bubble wrap. Only re-use what we receive from suppliers. Our business cards are also printed on FSC Certified Paper.
Our card decks arrive to us shrink wrapped. We have trialed and tested the arrival of them with, and without the shrink wrap. Unfortunately they would arrive to us damaged without it. Moving forward, hopefully there will be more sustainable shrink wrapping options to ensure the safe delivery of them to us.
Current packaging goals:
- Once all our old plastic shipping satchels are used, we will be purchasing bio-degradable shipping satchels. We usually use these plastic satchels to send wholesale packages in, so it will unfortunately take a while to process through these as we have a few hundred - but I would prefer to use them, rather than them go to waste :)
- Look for suppliers who provide recycled cardboard packing boxes, at an affordable price for the low minimum of boxes we order.
