Safe + Eco-Friendly
Here at AFMP,
We’ve put almost as much thought into our shipping and packaging materials as we have into the substrate for our plants!
All packaging materials we use are sourced from businesses who share our eco-conscious values and support businesses in the USA.
We believe in being responsible and accountable for the waste we produce.
Our 200#/ECT-32 corrugated cardboard shipping boxes can withstand up to 65 pounds, and made in the USA.
Our packaging paper provides extra support for the plants in transit, and will not disintegrate when wet.
These are made in the USA, made from 100% recycled materials, and can be recycled after use.
We use paper tape in place of plastic ones for their recyclability and ease-of-use.
The easier it is to open your shipping box, the safer your plant will be.
We try to minimize our environmental footprint when possible by selecting packaging that are either reused, recyclable, or compostable.
We also source recycled packaging from our local community! If you are located in the Portland, OR area, we invite you to use our scheduler via the links below to donate your unused packaging!
