Sustainable 'Crush' paper gift boxes at The Sandalwood Shop

Date Posted:16 December 2021 

A little revolution is quietly unfolding at The Sandalwood Shop. These amazing gift boxes are the cumulative outcome of our search for environmentally responsible packaging!

Made from what’s been termed as ‘Crush paper’, a 100% plant based sustainable material made using process residues from agricultural tree waste. So, when you see our cherry coloured gift boxes, know that that it’s made from the by-product of cherry production, thereby giving it that naturally red colour. These palm-sized cherry gift boxes are designed to fit two 10ml perfumes, making them perfect for gifting. Containing 40% post-consumer recycled waste using 100% green energy, you can be rest assured that we are in keeping with being a purveyor of quality without costing the environment.

Further, we will be replacing the use of plastic cellophane for our gift packs with a line of ‘Crush gift boxes’. These giftboxes shown above, better for the environment, will be available very soon.

Environmental waste and plastic pollution are indeed an entrenched symptom of our modern lifestyle, that can be mitigated. After all, we do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we merely borrow it from our children. The Hopi Indians knew this, so it’s all our responsibility to be a part of the solution, rather than the problem.
