Taking care of mother Earth is important to us, as living a minimnal life and caring for the environment are principally synonymous. Could we be more environmentally friendly? Sure! And we will always look for ways to minimize waste and do as little harm to the environment as possible in both our business and personal lives.
Here are some of the things we are already doing.
- Minimally package products.
- Use recyclable packaging as much as possible.
- Recycle all boxes for reuse or composting. No box gets thrown in the dumpster.
- Reuse or recycle paper.
- Drink from a water bottle instead of buying bottled water.
- Ship via ground as much as possible; shipping by air leaves a significantly larger carbon footprint.
- Turn off the lights! Bike to work.
- Think and live minimally.
- The less you consume, the less harm you do to the environment.

Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.
Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
