We here at Nimbus value healthy lifestyles and believe in conservation and sustainability. So naturally, as good Oregonians and conscious inhabitants of our planet Earth, we have a long history of recycling, reducing and reusing.
Maybe you have wondered what happens to all the merchandise packing materials, that come from our vendors, who ship us our goods for sale? For example, when we receive our Men’s shirts they go through a process of receiving, unpacking, unwrapping, unfolding, and distribution of packing materials to recycling. Then the shirts are put on hangars, steamed, and we hand write tags with information and pricing. A box of shirts contains several shirts that come in their own plastic bag. When opening the bag and starting to unfold the shirt, it has a hard plastic collar surround, a hard plastic front collar closure, metal pins, metal clips, plastic clips, cardboard in both the collar and as a back board for stability and tissue to separate the fabric layers. Needless to report, we receive a large number of shirts and we get buried in packing materials!
We just wanted you to know that we responsibly separate, recycle, reduce and reuse. Boxes are stored in our box room and saved for shipping orders or they are collapsed and recycled as corrugated cardboard. We reuse the metal pins by giving them to the tailor shop or we recycle the pins along with the metal clips. We reuse the tissue in our Gallery Department to wrap fragile items or use it as packing material. We take our soft plastic bags to the recycling center. And lastly, in conjunction with our recycling partner, Standing Stone Brewery, we bring our clear hard plastic to their receptacle, which in turn, they take to the recycling center.
