WE’RE STRIVING TO GET GREENER EVERY DAY
Bloomist is studiously working with our suppliers to find eco-safe packaging materials
that are more in line with our mission. Legislative restrictions on fossil
fuel-based materials like (EPS) Styrofoam are rapidly increasing, which means more
sustainable solutions are being developed and will hopefully be available to us soon.
In the interest of not generating additional waste, some of our products are shipped in
their original vendor packaging. Please recycle responsibly and follow these guidelines
for safe disposal of all our packaging materials.
DO NOT BURN. EPS is highly flammable and contains a carcinogen, benzene.
EPS isn’t accepted at most municipal recycling programs, but the EPS industry Alliance wants it back.

Cardboard and Paper
Most paper products can be placed in a curbside recycling bin.
aka Plastic film packaging (PE) and Bubble wrap, aka LDPE are both made from a synthetic resin.
Plastic film can be recycled to make composite lumber for decks, benches, and playground sets.
It can also be reprocessed into small pellets, which can be made into new bags, pallets,
containers, crates, and pipe.
These items cannot be recycled in your curbside bin at home.
Instead, Bloomist suggests checking with plasticfilmrecycling.org
for the nearest recycling drop-off location. These include grocery stores and other retail stores.
Tissue paper is made from recycled paper, so the fibers are shortened to the
point where it cannot feasibly go through the recycling process again. In some cases, tissue
paper can be composted.
Rubber bands are not recyclable. Technically rubber bands are compostable,
however rubber takes a long time to break down or biodegrade. Bloomist suggests reusing.
