EFFENTII - Why We Use Less Packaging and Ship Directly to Customers

Effentii Brand Environmental Responsibility

Effentii was founded on the principles of social responsibility, and we work hard to ensure our business is mindful of how our activities impact the world around us.  It is our sincere belief that each person, and each organization has the opportunity to make a difference, no matter how small .  Every small action makes an impact, and with each person taking their part, the world can be a better place.

We wanted to offer our products to customers, while limiting our impact on the environment, and the broader world around us.  We continually strive to find new and innovative ways of doing business that permit us to achieve our goals.  Whether it is by eschewing traditional branded packaging, which comes at a cost in terms of materials, but more importantly, in terms of the energy and waste it creates.  With that in mind, we wanted to do more than what others have done.  At Effentii we recognize that while putting our products into fancy branded boxes and packaging may look good, but ultimately this packaging is immediately ripped open and discarded.  This increases waste in many ways, not only because of the energy, resources and materials used to create the packaging itself is wasted, but the additional weight, production and transport adds additional waste in many different ways.  With this in mind, we use the most minimal packaging possible, which not only minimized weight during transport, but also reduces the waste our products produce.

Even though we pack and ship our products with minimal packaging to help reduce our environmental impact, we wanted to go ever further in reducing our environmental impact.  We realized that shipping products from manufacturers to additional warehouses globally, that we could reduct our carbon footprint significantly if we could ship our products directly to our customers from the suppliers directly.  This means that our products have fewer "hops" from one location to another, which dramatically reduces the environmental impact from shipping, but also from the activities of stocking the product, and then picking it again from shelves in order to be shipped yet again to our customers.

We like to say - Eco, Not Ego

Today, we strive to ship as many of our products as possible directly from our suppliers to reduce the environmental impact of our products - less travel time per package, and less energy wasted on re-warehousing and re-shipping.

At Effentii we are continually looking for new and innovative ways to conduct our business in order to provide the best quality products and service to our valued customers, while ensuring we stay true to our goals of being excellent stewards of the environment, and leading by example in all the markets we serve.

We are proud of the solutions we deliver in support of our planet, and continue to live by our principle of Eco, Not Ego.
