Spruce. is operated by a team of two young ladies who are determined that the fashion industry does not have to be as destructive as it is today. With more awareness of the waste and impact a business can have on the environment, they are resourceful and mindful on how to operate and be as ethical as possible.
Our orders are packed using kraft mailers from the Tiny Box Company that produces more sustainable packaging by using recycled materials. Kraft is a material that is easily recyclable, biodegradable and compostable.
Some of our pieces (e.g. our headbands), come carefully wrapped in white tissue paper from Eco Craft. These are made of 100% recycled materials, are acid free and are also easily recyclable, biodegradable and compostable.
Some of our orders are shipped in grey poly mailer bags by Polybags. These bags are made using 100% recycled polythene, which means fewer natural resources and energy are used to produce than virgin polythene products.
Our Jewellery pouch and box
Our pieces come in a suede like pouch designed by us and a high quality kraft box. These are meant to safe keep your jewellery and used as storage - not to be discarded after unboxing. If you do prefer not to use the box for your pieces, we'd recommend you to reuse it. It would make great storage for small items or even reused as a small gift box ♡
In our workspace, we recycle and reuse as much as possible. We are lucky to be based in Switzerland, a country where recycling is strongly embedded in the culture with many available recycling centres.
