Sustainability

Giving back to the planet through sustainable practices

We believe sustainable products need to be more accessible

Shopping sustainably starts with being able to trust that what you buy is eco-friendly. Too many companies slap eco-certifications on products without telling you what they mean. That’s why, we pledge to be as transparent as possible with how and where our products are made, so you know exactly what you’re getting when you place an order with Twigs.

Our Process

Since day one our mantra has been “If we can’t do it sustainably, we won’t do it at all.” From sourcing recycled paper, to printing with eco-friendly inks and shipping orders in post-consumer-waste mailers, sustainability is front and center in every part of our process.

We want to be sure we leave as minimal a footprint as possible, and we are constantly searching for new ways to be eco-friendly.

Materials we use

  • Paper: We only use 100% PCW paper that is FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) Certified. Rather than using carbon or nuclear energy, our paper is produced with biogas, which is the energy released from decomposing landfill waste that is captured and used for production at the paper mill. This reduces Co2 output by thousands of tons each year.  
  • Printing: While traditional printing uses toxic inks that contain VOC’s (volatile organic compounds), all our printing is done with non-toxic inks to keep our air and water free of unwanted pollutants.  

Where we produce

All our materials are sourced from within the United States and Canada to be sure our quality and sustainability standards are met. Most of our products are printed in New York and all orders are shipped from our location in New Jersey.

Small businesses play a crucial role in our process, and we are proud to support small and local companies whenever possible.

Sustainable delivery

Tired of all that unneeded plastic and bubble wrap? We are too. That’s why we ship everything plastic-free. Orders are secured in our sturdy, 100% PCW packaging, which is fully recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable.
