Our Packaging

If you are a regular Auswrap customer, you may have noticed that we ship in all sorts of different boxes. Sometimes weird, sometimes wonderful! You may have asked yourself "Why am I getting my order in a coffee cup box?"

Against all the advice of the experts who tell us an online order delivery is all about the un-boxing experience where everything should be branded and pristine we have taken another approach. 

After stalking the local area for clean strong boxes we could re-use, we identified and approached several local businesses including cafe's, a gift shop and a hairdresser supplies business to see if we can alleviate them of boxes on a regular basis. They happily obliged as recycling is an added expense for their business. 

It's not just a win/win for Auswrap and these businesses. Its also a win for the environment. These boxes get another life before going through the recycling process and contributing to our carbon footprint. And last but not least our customers - we can keep our shipping costs down by using mostly recycled packaging. Now if you ask me would I like cheap shipping or a pretty box and I know what my answer would be!
