We’ve worked hard to find resources that meet our vision for protecting the planet. You’ll notice that your purchase arrives in a Dupont Tyvek® envelope and does not have tags attached with plastic!
If you are wondering “Why Tyvek?”, a publicly funded life cycle inventory (LCI) by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ) with the U.S. EPA Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Program found that shipping soft goods in lightweight, non-rigid materials such as Tyvek® or poly bags is the most environmentally friendly shipping solution. This is due to reduced weight, conservation of space on transit vehicles, economical value of the materials, and the best protection of products from moisture damage.
The ODEQ study provides a complete LCI from the extraction of necessary raw materials to production, use, and disposal of the packaging. While it finds lightweight, non-rigid materials such as Tyvek® and poly bags to be the most environmentally friendly purchasing option for retailers, we must still count on you, our customers, to take necessary steps to recycle packaging materials.
If you don’t wish to reuse the Tyvek® envelop your purchase ships in, you can turn your envelop inside out and return it to DuPont or to Revenge Is… for appropriate recycling:
