EZVapes.com cares about our planet. We are dedicated to doing our part to have a positive impact on the environment and are committed to environmentally friendly business practices. Read on to learn more about how EZVapes.com gives back.
Offsetting Carbon Emissions
Each year EZVapes.com will offset 4x the estimated carbon emmissions from our business operations by supporting third-party verified environmental restoration projects that meet the highest international standards for excellence. We are a certified CarbonFund partner as of 2014 and continue to explore additional ways to make a positive impact on the environment.
Beginning December 2014 EZVapes.com has committed to plant a minimum of 100 trees per month, every month in cooperation with a highly rated charitable organization that focuses on reforestation around the world. Our goal is to increase the number of trees we plant month over month to achieve our goal of planting at least 10,000 trees by 2020.
Biodegradable Packing Peanuts
EZVapes.com realizes it is just as important to reduce our environmental impact as it is to offset our emissions. To do this we analyze our day to day business practices to identify how we can make changes to achieve this goal. For several years we have made use of environmentally friendly packing peanuts which dissolve instantly in water. In doing this we have eliminated tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of cubic feet in styrofoam peanuts, which are made from non-sustainable petroleum and can take from 1,000 - 1,000,000 years to biodegrade. While styrofoam is technically recyclable, less than 4% of the 600 million pounds used each year is recycled. The biodegradable packing peanuts we use are more expensive, but we think the extra cost is well worth it.
From day one EZVapes.com has always used a special type of super durable, reusable box, whenever possible, to ship products to our customers. These white boxes are very strong and can be reopened and closed easily and securely, which eliminates the need for a new box when sending a return and gives the customer the option to use their empty box to ship something themselves or for household storage. If you are not going to reuse your box please recycle it locally!
EZVapes.com uses 100% recycled printer paper to print packing slips and all other inter office documents whenever possible. This is in combination with our minimal paperwork policy which mandates that electronic means of documentation and communication be used whenever possible with the goal of greatly reducing the amount of paper we use on a day to day basis. You can do your part by requesting no packing slip be sent when placing your order by leaving a note during checkout, and referring to your email receipt instead.
Although environmentally friendly business practices are part of our DNA as a company, we feel there is always room for improvement and continually analyze our practices and search for ways to do more. We are excited to see what the future holds and find more ways to do our part to preserve this beautiful planet we all share. When you buy from EZVapes.com please have confidence that you are supporting a company that does the right things for the right reasons and recognizes its responsibility to protect the environment.
