Checklist for Sustainable Products

Sustainability has become a critical consideration in today's world, and many consumers are looking for ways to reduce their environmental impact. One of the most effective ways to do this is by choosing sustainable products. Sustainable products are those that are manufactured, distributed, and disposed of in an environmentally responsible way. However, it can be challenging to identify sustainable products. That is why we have put together a checklist to help you ensure you are buying sustainable products.

1. Check the Packaging

The first thing you should look for when buying a product is the packaging. Sustainable products are typically packaged in materials that are eco-friendly, such as recycled cardboard or biodegradable plastics. At E’s Element, we strongly believe in as little waste as possible as well as quality packaging. All our packages are carefully sourced and hand-selected to ensure that your products are kept secure and beautifully designed for you to enjoy! Our packaging is sustainable and prioritizes security and customer satisfaction to ensure you have a wonderful experience before and after receiving your E's Element order.

2. Research the Company

Another way to determine if a product is sustainable is by researching the company that produces it. When shopping from larger corporations look for information about the company's environmental policies and practices, such as their use of renewable energy or their waste reduction efforts. You can also check if the company has received any awards or recognition for their sustainability practices. When shopping from small businesses, like E’s Element, you can look for information on the materials used for products and manufacturing processes. You can read about E’s Element’s processes.

3. Consider the Product's Lifespan

Before purchasing a product, consider how long it will last and how frequently you will need to replace it. Sustainable products are often designed to last longer, reducing the need for frequent replacements. Additionally, some products can be repaired, which can extend their lifespan even further. By using durable  materials like IP plating for our jewelry and cotton for our athleisurewear, the lifespan of our products are extended to ensure sustainability. You can read more about our materials and processing techniques that ensure long life span on our materials page.


4. Check for Recyclability or Compostability

Finally, check if the product can be recycled or composted at the end of its life. Sustainable products are typically designed to be easily recyclable or compostable, reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.

As a small business, we are naturally more sustainable, producing in small batches, and largely operating in response to actual demand for products. Consider shopping from small businesses like E’s Element as a sustainable practice. By following the guideline we’ve laid out you can ensure that you are buying sustainable products that are good for the environment. Use thIiscriteria the next time you shop, and you'll be able to make a positive impact on the planet while still getting the products you need.
