2 Great Ways to Stay Updated

Packaging Recycle Program

We will offer a $5 discount on orders over $15 to anyone who mails back the styrofoam lining of our shipping boxes. This saves us time, keeps shipping cost down, and puts less waste in the trash since the materials will be reused. Please send the pieces back in a flat envelope or package and send them as cheap and slow as possible, there is no rush. Then please recycle the cardboard box and we will apply your discount to your next order. Thanks!
