Affirm Your Joy is committed to being as sustainable as possible with all its offerings! Every sheet of paper sourced is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified to protect forests, its inhabitants, and the indigenous communities that manage them. Check out FSC to learn more.
We are proud to announce that the Affirm Your Joy Gratitude Journal is made of 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper! I'm so excited that no new trees have to be cut down in order to make these journals. That's the cover, the inside paper, AND the inside library pocket - all recycled! And just in case you don't want to hold onto the journal, it can be recycled with mixed paper waste when you're done. To my knowledge, there is not a significant enough amount of glue on the spine to pose an issue in recycling. However if you're questioning, you could trim the spine off as you see fit before recycling.
The materials used in the Peace Deck Affirmation Cards originate from well-managed forests and support source tracking via the Forest Stewardship Council. Decks are individually shrink-wrapped by the manufacturer for product protection.
Because stickers may be sourced from different manufacturers, some stickers in the shop are made with PVC-free materials, while others contain PVC materials.
The primary mailers used are 100% recycled kraft, and are recyclable with mixed papers when done. Shipping labels are both recycled and recyclable (including the liner they came on). Paper merchandise bags used inside of mailers are also 100% recycled + recyclable. Occasionally, mailers and packaging supplies (think tissue paper or bubble wrap) will be reused on my end to reduce waste. Thank you in advance for helping me care for our home (Earth)!
As more products are added to the shop, I'll be updating this page to keep you in the know of AYJ's practices. If you have any questions or suggestions for better practice, please contact us!
