BENDY update

Happy Halloween BENDY supporters,

Everything is falling into place nicely in our production cycle. We ordered our made-in-the USA shoe boxes recently. They are recycled, recyclable and bio-degradable. Surprisingly, this combination was not so easy to find. To us, all packaging should be this way, right? That said, it is good to know we found it in the great state of Colorado :)

The other really cool thing is that most shoe companies would ship a shoe box and a shipping carton, so you would get two boxes when your shoes arrived. In our case, the BENDY will come in one box that serves as the shoe box and the shipping carton. So we are reducing packaging by 50%. We look at every piece of our business through the lens of reducing the impact on the environment.

Here is a peek at the box artwork. We chose white print against a kraft colored box. We think this color combo has a modern vibe.

Take care!

Mary Sue, Yvette and Caroline
