At Watt's, we are are striving to create the smallest footprint we can. Below you can see what we've been doing from the start, and some of what we plan on doing as we grow!
Shipping is a HUGE deal when it comes to the size of each of our footprints. A very effective eco-friendly shipping practice is innate at Watt's; all of the inventory we sell is bought and shipped from the mainland part of the USA. That's where all of our wholesale vendors are! That means there will be no incoming inventory that has to to travel on the water from our vendors. But that's not it...we've been considering this since the beginning, and this is what we've accomplished so far:
In the future (as soon as we can afford to), we plan on purchasing biodegradable packing peanuts and replacing our standard USPS boxes with more of our own custom, eco-friendly boxes. We will also be purchasing and using recycled and recyclable shipping envelopes rather than using the USPS plastic ones. As always, all of these products will be US made.
When we order our inventory, we're very conscious of offering some pretty great items that are super eco-friendly! You'll find them sprinkled throughout the store. We source and offer extraordinary Earth-loving products including everything from belts and wallets made of used bike tire tubes to organic handmade soaps, from travel kits made of re-used advertising banners to clothing made using beechwood fabric (and beechwood is a naturally self-renewing resource!).
As of now, we don't own the building we're in. It's an older building, so of course there are limitations on what we can accomplish. However, we're still doing a lot! Here are some highlights:
In addition, the very first thing on our "to do as soon as we can afford it" list is to hire a nearby recycling pick-up company to provide bins for and pick up everything we can recycle! (This is not currently a service offered by our small town.)
While there's always more to do, we are committed to creating the smallest footprint possible within our means. We will continue to evolve as we go, and look forward to seeing what else we can accomplish together!
