Do enhanced packaging dyes have to come at the expense of sustainability?

WHAT WE LOVE:

  • Boxes with beautiful, durable earth tones
  • Paper-based packaging that help us reduce waste

BUT DID YOU KNOW?

  • Dyes commonly used to produce packaging tend to ‘wash off’ during production and fade away when exposed to light
  • Manufacturers have to oversaturate the pulp with dyes to try and compensate
