Behold Games believes in making small steps to cut down on waste, so your order might not come in the prettiest packaging, and might have an odd mix of padding inside, but it will arrive safely and with reduced environmental impact. Some of the small steps we take are listed below:
- If you pay via Shop Pay (instead of PayPal) then you are automatically taking part in the Shop carbon offset scheme which offsets the environmental cost of your delivery by funding the protection of rainforests.
Packaging & Padding for your order is reused and recycled, or able to be reused and recycled:
- The tape we use on boxes is made from recycled plastic.
- Bubble wrap we use is made from recycled plastic, or is reused bubble wrap from orders we receive.
- Packing peanuts we receive are reused in orders we send to you.
- Air-Cells and Kraft Paper void fill are reused from orders we receive.
- Cardboard boxes and cardboard padding are reused where possible. Rather than buy boxes to fit, I sometimes will cut boxes down to size for your delivery, this helps reuse before recycling.
- We have phased out mailers with plastic, moving to cardboard padded bags instead (three types: Corrugated cardboard envelope, honeycomb wrap padded envelope, and the Jiffy padded mailer with recycled materials in the lining to serve as padding).
- We do not repackage any products we receive. If we do remove or change the packaging where possible it is saved and repurposed. For example all dice come to us in plastic bags, these ziplock bags are saved and repurposed to send out other products in (eg, dice singles).
Rubbish and Recycling at the Behold Games Warehouse:
- Any soft plastic waste is collected and taken to soft plastic recycling.
- Box offcuts are saved and repurposed to provide additional packaging for orders, or recycled when they are no longer of use.
