ILUSTORE reduces your footprint and helps fight climate change!
ILUSTORE ships with minimal packaging to reduce waste. ILUSTORE's signature butterfly mailers are the most sustainable in the online jewelry industry. ILUSTORE uses the United States Postal Service in almost all shipping (except where not available or special requirements). ILUSTORE has determined the United States Postal System's existing footprint is best leveraged for carbon reduction (versus Amazon for example).

ILU Carbon Positive FAQ
When we say orders will be “carbon neutral” (“net zero” is another term you’ll hear), that means that we will eliminate, capture, or otherwise mitigate all of the carbon emissions created from making your company's products and shipping them to your customer's door.
Carbon offsets are a practical and effective way to reduce the effects of climate change by funding wind, solar, and other renewable energy projects. You can see the projects we support here.
The best way to slow climate change is to not release carbon emissions in the first place. There are many ways to reduce your carbon footprint, but it's impossible to eliminate it completely. For reducing climate impact that can't be eliminated, high-quality carbon offsets are the most credible and impactful tool.
