Bella Vino Gift Baskets, LLC is an online service dba as Bella Vino Gifts in Corvallis, Oregon. Specializing in custom personal & corporate Oregon made gifts featuring small women and family owned businesses.
We care about how our business effects the earth. While it is currently not possible to make a 100% green basket, we are committed to providing all that we can to make them earth friendlier. We do this in the following ways:
Besides being more sustainable and supporting our community, we choose local so as to decrease our shipping and therefore our carbon footprint
We use recycled and biodegradable tissues and paper shreds
We use natural shaved aspen wood, also known as excelsior
We re-purpose the cardboard boxes our products come in for our basket supports, as well as collect scrap cardboard and paper from local businesses
We choose tulle fabric wrap as our first choice over plastics for the wrapping of our baskets
We now have biodegradable, compost-able cello made from wood, with the look of plastic, to wrap our baskets, without the environmental impact
While we do use baskets, we also try to use alternative containers that might be more useful and less likely to be thrown out, for example magazine holders, organizational bins and reusable shopping bags
In our efforts to be mindful of how our business effects the earth, we do more than use earth friendlier materials in the construction of our gift baskets. We are always looking for ways and ideas on how to repurpose or reuse the packaging or items in our baskets. We have many practical and grand ideas for upcycling on Pinterest and our Blog.
