Fleur & Bee Recycling Guide

Product Recycling Guide

Mother Earth needs our help! From climate change to waste, we humans haven’t always treated her with the kindness and respect she deserves. Here at Fleur & Bee, we’re trying to change that. Our products are manufactured with 100% renewable wind energy, sourced with sustainable ingredients, and our goal is to be carbon neutral by the end of 2022. But, what do you do with packaging that is left after the products are all used up? Well, you've come to the right place to learn more.

Earth911 - An Important Resource

Our packaging is up to 90% recyclable, but figuring out how to navigate different recycling programs across the country can be challenging. Earth911 is a wonderful resource that allows you to enter your zip code to find out if your municipal recycling program takes certain recyclables. If your city doesn’t recycle a certain item, Earth911 will provide you with a list of places in your area that can take it. We’ve broken down each of our packaging components below, and provided you with the type of material you need to search for in Earth911 to determine if, how, and where you can recycle it!

Outer Packaging

Our outer packaging includes our kraft shipping boxes, pink outer boxes, paper insert cards, and white padded inserts. Our kraft shipping boxes are made from 98.5% post-consumer content. Our pink boxes are made from 100% recycled post-consumer waste paperboard and are FSC-certified. Both are 100% recyclable.
