At Juni, our first and foremost commitment is to maximize our environmental impact. In addition to incorporating environmental sustainability into our product design and manufacturing process, we are also taking the following actions:
- Packaging - We try to minimize dead space in packaging, but when it is unavoidable, we use recycled kraft paper as the filler. In addition, the individual packaging for our products are made using AstroPak or recycled kraft paper.
- Shipping - we offset carbon emissions that are generated from packaging and shipping (calculated with the help of ShipBob and Pachama) by investing in conservation projects created to protect temperate forests in northeastern United States from timber or land use development.
- 1% for the Planet - We donate 1% of your purchase towards environmental causes.
Moso bamboo, the type of bamboo that our products are made out of, are known for their ability to grow quickly, up to a meter a day. And with the toughness of the wood, moso bamboo is not eaten by panda bears, so you don't have to worry about taking food from them.
Even with the heat-treated bamboo, our bamboo products are biodegradable in nature. Our products have been shown to degrade and decompose in anywhere between a few months to a few years, as opposed to plastic which can take up to 500 years.
