Perhaps the best way to impact the world's waste problem is to buy everything without packaging. Until that time arrives, we use the bare minimum packaging of plain, hand-stamped kraft envelopes. Marketing specialists told us that this kind of minimalistic, non-plastic, “blind” packaging wouldn’t sell products. We want to prove them wrong. Our customers are mature enough to research our quality for themselves. We are in the business of selling tools, not the package they come in. Not only is the packaging 100% biodegradable, but because each of our products also lasts a lifetime or longer, our tools will not be discarded quickly. These two things together exempt us from an alarming statistic that, quite frankly, we want no part of: nearly 3 trillion pounds of throw-away trash is created worldwide
