Our Philosophy on Shipping

  • We buy only 100% post consumer recycled packing materials.
  • We buy only 100% degradable packing materials.
  • We reuse the packing materials we incur as part of running our business. Every piece of bubble wrap and packing paper gets reused in our shipments across the nation.

Reducing our Impact

At Greenery NYC our mission is to increase awareness and appreciation of plant life everywhere, not just in Brooklyn, New York where we are headquartered. We feel that shipping high quality plants and plant-related products through out the U.S. will further our mission to connect people with nature, even in small doses.

We know that shipping has a big impact on our environment and we thought long and hard about how to reconcile our desire to share our passion nationwide with the inevitable environmental impact that comes with a fossil-fuel based shipping system like the one provided by our partners at Fed-Ex and the United States Postal Service.

We decided that until we can ship using renewable resources (and we hope that day comes soon!) we can focus on tracking our shipping impact each month with the goal of being more efficient and reducing our impact and also reusing each and every piece of packing material that comes our way. We use only 100% recycled cardboard and paper as well as bio-degradable cellophane and other packing materials to protect plants during shipping. We hope you'll join us in our commitment to reduce, reuse, and recycle all of your packaging materials.
