OUR ENVIRONMENTAL PROMISE

At Japan Stationery we are passionate about the environment and our footprint on Earth.  We make sure our stationery respects the local environment.  We also ship all our orders using 100% recycled packaging and don't print invoices or packing notes unless required, to help reduce our waste.  We try our hardest to make sure we don't over use or waste resources as a business.  All our deliveries are also now CARBON NEUTRAL and we are working on making our imported Japanese stationery the same in the immediate future.  While this isn't the solution to our carbon footprint, we believe it is an important step on our journey to having as light a footprint on the planet as we can.
All of our Japanese stationery is as environmentally friendly as we can source.  By the fact a lot of Japanese papers are handmade, makes them much more sustainable with less waste, water and energy used in their manufacture.  Where we buy from people using machine made papers & card, that use wood pulp, this is always FSC approved with a robust sustainability plan in place.  This means the wood pulp comes from managed and sustainable forest, usually locally to the mill in Japan.   They often have additional projects to help reduce their footprint on the planet like waste and water recapture.
The website we run is also carbon neutral.  All the energy used to service the  data and servers is renewable energy.  This is usually a hidden side to the internet with lots of power used to run the computers needed for the website.  We have worked to make sure we are only using renewable energy to meet our needs.
We try our upmost to make our Japanese stationery as environmentally sustainable as possible, with current technology.  There is no end point to efforts to source more and more environmentally sustainable stationery.  This is a journey we strive to constantly improve on, giving you the confidence to buy knowing we looking after the planet as much as possible.
