KIRR means keeping it real and raw.
The way some companies do it? No. The way we do it? Yes! The truth is, most online retailers rely on expedited shipping practices delivered in boxes overflowing with plastic and styrofoam to ensure the product doesn’t get damaged when dashing to your door.
But we’re doing online shopping differently. Each order comes packaged using recycled and reused cardboard boxes with paper-fill–not foam peanuts, styrofoam or bubble plastic wrap. The boxes annd packaging our brands send us, we lovingly repurpose to send back to you. These are just some of the ways the ways we’re changing the impact of online shopping!
We totally support vegan products, and vegan lifestyles, but you’ll find that not all products on KIRR are vegan. We aim to offer sustainable solutions for all of us eco-warriors, and some of these solutions include using natural ingredients like sustainably sourced beeswax or ethically sourced, non-mulesed wool.
Having said that, we do carry a large range of vegan products that support your lifestyle! Look for the Sustainability Logos on each product page, or simply type “Vegan” in the search bar!
Brace yourselves–there’s no such thing as “100% sustainable”. We’ve found that “sustainability” means different things to different people, and we’d be hard-pressed to find any product that does it all 100% perfectly (though we try!). We admire eco-warriors of all backgrounds, beliefs, and practices – after all, we’re all on the same path of to make the world a better place.
Every product requires energy and resources, but we search for brands that are doing their best to take responsibility for these impacts. Whether that means using natural and biodegradable materials, utilizing recycled waste, or working with companies that give back to the planet, we’re confident that any product you buy on KIRR has a lower impact than traditional “stuff”. We search for those pioneering the sustainable movement.
If there is something you are looking for in particular and it’s not on our platform, send us an e-mail! We can try our best to help source for them.
