plastic shipping supplies

That’s right, we’re talking about plastic.

Tika is in the business of importing goods from around the world and shipping orders out to our customers, so plastic is an inevitable part of life here at the office. It is an incredibly useful material for packing, protecting and transporting the wide variety of objects we carry and we like to think of it as a “precious” material.

We are also very mindful of the negative impact plastics are having on the environment and we take many steps to reduce our consumption of single-use plastics. From re-using plastic bags and shipping materials to ongoing conversations with our suppliers about reducing unnecessary waste when sending goods to us, we are making adjustments all the time to help make Tika even more environmentally friendly.

Because this month is Plastic Free July, we have been inspired to revisit the conversation about ways in which we can continue to minimize our use of plastics.

How are you reducing single-use plastic in your daily life or in your work place? We would love to hear your ideas and suggestions, let’s help each work towards a plastic-free future!
