Our MINUS1ONE Package: We're Not Just Hanging Up—We're Greening Up
Here’s something you probably didn’t know about YOUHANGIT… but we’re pretty darn proud of it and decided we should let the world know about our insanely ecofriendly packaging. Made of the world's most recyclable plastic, PETE#1, the MINUS1ONE is reusable, so you can store your YHI products in it over and over again.
Probably our biggest boasting point outside of its deep greenness (we’re just as proud as we can be of our baby!) is how easy YOUHANGIT products are to open. The package doesn't have to be ripped apart by way of chain saw like other lesser packaging options that can actually result in serious cutting injuries to the hands with the edges of sharp plastic or as the user struggles with the packaging and scissors or knife. Seriously, have you purchased batteries or a set of kitchen utensils recently? It’s like a jousting match with an inanimate object, which makes you look and feel frustrated (yes, your face is red and those wrinkles are not getting any smaller—neither is that one vein on the side of your forehead.)
Our MINUS1ONE package is so easy to open and durable—requiring no fumbling, fussing, or throwing in the trash. The package spells commitment to consumer safety and addresses YOUR personal concerns about the environment on an individual and global level. It isn’t every day that you get the chance to make a difference when choosing how ecologically sound a product or its packaging is, and we think that’s a shame. For us at YOUHANGIT, the world is not just as pretty as the things you hang in it. It’s our responsibility as consumers and as manufacturers to make conscious decisions that will make changes, no matter how slight, to keep our collective environmental footprint as small as possible.
We truly hope you’ll enjoy using and reusing the MINUS1ONE packaging. We also hope it will spur us all to be more mindful of other ways we can be making a difference. Getting into DIY projects with reused and upcycled goodies and keeping a home garden even if we live in urban areas are awesome places to start.
Making the choice to teach the next generation that their voices are decisions in progress and that they have the ability to make manufacturers rethink and retool their operations—that’s real change in motion, and we’re proud to offer green options for hanging anything right the first time for any consumer from any walk of life!
