Here at Rainbow Cupboard, we use all recycled materials to handmake the perfect shipping container for your purchase. This will include boxes that we have created from used shipping boxes, shredded paper for padding, and hand-dyed fabrics to wrap your order. This means that we are doing our best for the earth, but also doing our best to keep your shipping costs LOW. Some items may cost more than $3.25 to ship due to their weight, please know we will still keep shipping as affordable and as fair as possible. We cherish our customers and cherish the environment as well.
