At VCCG we try our best to be eco-friendly and sustainable. In this statement we will outline how we plan to do this. We don’t like marketing fluff, so this statement will be short and practical.
First off we recycle as much packaging material as possible. This will mean you sometimes get your games delivered in weird looking packaging. Although we reuse boxes and other packing materials, we will always make sure your game will be well-protected and secured inside it’s packaging. So, no worries about getting dented or damaged goods!
We source our packaging materials locally. We have understandings with our closest neighbors, where they will “donate” boxes and other packing materials to our warehouse. This means that we won’t be contributing to pollution caused by delivery trucks bringing us stacks of cardboard.
If possible we would prefer having our stock delivered by electric vehicles, bike or other eco-friendly delivery service. Sadly this is currently not possible, which means we do contribute to pollution 🙁
Should the need arise to use new packaging materials we will opt for 100% recycled cardboard and eco-friendly padding materials to protect your games.
To offset the pollution we cause from doing business (which sadly is unpreventable) we try to invest in sustainable initiatives like these:
- Pallite – lightweight, strong & sustainable honeycomb paper pallets
- CCell – on a mission to protect beaches from erosion by using 100% renewable energy to grow beautiful artificial reefs far faster than in nature.
We are always on the lookout for new initiatives, should you happen to come across something, feel free to let us know!
Well, that’s it! If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, feel free to contact us!
