Sustainable packaging is something we take very seriously. Our goal is to protect our products while minimizing waste. Coyuchi items are made all over the world, with each location presenting its own unique challenges, from sub-zero winters to hundred-degree monsoon seasons. Additionally, much of our product travels by container, still the most cost- and energy-efficient way to ship. These containers can reach temperatures over 200 degrees as they make their way from Turkey and India across the Pacific to California. While protecting your items from extreme conditions and temperatures, we also strive to minimize the impact our packaging has on the planet. Below is a list of the elements used in our packaging and our reason for choosing them:
Most textiles you buy are shipped in thick PVC packaging. As we search for ways to completely eliminate plastic from our packaging while still protecting our products and making them visible on the store shelf, we have sourced a degradable plastic that breaks down into basic elements after just three years.

Paper Inserts & Hangtags
Our paper inserts and hangtags are made from 100% recycled paper. For all items made beginning in 2013, we have modified the inserts to use 75% less paper than before.
Our bedding inserts, duvet covers and shams are packaged in organic cotton bags. As demand for organic cotton has leveled off, there is little incentive for farmers to convert more of their conventional cotton to organic cotton and less need for weavers to maintain facilities dedicated to organic cotton. By using organic cotton whenever possible, we can increase the demand for organic cotton while producing packaging that can be reused for years to come instead of being discarded.
All note cards are made from 100% recycled kraft paper and printed using soy-based inks.
All of our shipping boxes are made from 100% recycled cardboard, using the highest post-consumer content available in the industry.
Please reuse or recycle all of our packaging.
