A word on packaging

At Cherith Brook, I use minimal packaging.  I use recyclable containers wherever possible, and keep labeling to a minimum.  I hope that these containers will be reused if they are not recycled.  I know a lot of people like beautiful things with elaborate, gorgeous containers, but my philosophy is one of sustainability.  It’s what’s inside the package that matters, and I hope that everyone can appreciate my efforts to be as kind to our planet as possible.  If you’re local and return reusable containers, I’ll deduct fifty cents from your order for each container returned (these are sterilized before they are used again).  I’m happy to make the same offer by mail, but I’m afraid postage might make it less of an incentive 😉  But if you want to save up your containers and return them all at once, I’ll take them!
