Cheap-Chic Decor Continues to "Be Green" with Eco-Friendly Packaging

Recently a customer gave us feedback complimenting us on our EcoFriendly packaging. This brings up a point definitely worth mentioning. In packing our boxes, we attempt to use as many recycled materials that we can get our hands on. By "recycled" we mean boxes that other local businesses have received shipments in, boxes we have received shipments in, styrofoam peanuts and bubble wrap from other deliveries and newspaper collected from employees. So although these materials eventually will land in the garbage, we are happy to give them one more use before that happens! We are thrilled to be doing our part to help the environment but the truth is...we are CHEAP! Packing supplies are extremely expensive and at the end of the day, as long as they keep your product safe in transit, they do nothing to enhance the look of your product once it is displayed in your home. Our damage rate is far less than 1% because we put a lot of effort into packing your box. So if the packing is a bit unconventional or the box looks like it has been around the block a few times or your box is packed with coupons that have already been clipped....feel good about the fact that we did not have to raise the purchase price on your item so that we can cover our overhead on fancy packing supplies!!
