How we Pack & Ship
Eco Pack and Carbon Free Shipping
Instruction manual is made of recycled paper. We have minimal text and images on our packaging. The more “naked” the packaging, the more sustainable it is.
Since we started Orikomi, making the move to eco packaging has been on top of our agenda. And the day to take the next step has already arrived.

We are a Carbonfree® Shipping Partner of Cabonfund.org. They offset the Orikomi shipping carbon footprint by supporting projects of reforestation or energy efficiency that reduce carbon dioxide emissions and the threat of climate change. Find out more about these projects like forest conservation in Amazonia or treatment of contaminated drinking water in Kenya. We believe that we should reduce what we can and offset what we can’t.
