Environmental and social responsibility is at the forefront of our decision making at Blendily. We wanted to share some of the things we are doing in the realm of sustainability.
We hand make all of our products in store and we procure the ingredients as close to our store as possible. This has an impact in a few ways: it keeps money in the local economy, it supports small businesses, and reduces the carbon footprint of our products.
The vast majority of our packaging is glass based, but the lids and dispensing tops are plastic as we have not found alternatives available. We limit our waste by reusing as much as we can and invite our customers to return our packaging to us. We ship our products without bubble wrap or styrofoam peanuts, using corrugated recycled kraft paper for cushioning.
