How We Craft Sustainably

At Fable, we’re dedicated to becoming a zero-waste company, and we take that goal into account every step of the way.

Not only do we partner with makers who share our commitment to sustainable craft, responsible design, and ethical employment practices, we also ensure that eco-friendly packaging lands at your front door. We want you to feel as good about buying Fable products as we do about making them.

Our Packaging

We aren’t interested in adding to landfills. That’s why all of our packaging is 100% recyclable and plastic-free, the dyes on our boxes are non-petroleum, and we only use paper that comes from FSC-certified forests.

Paper is one of the most easily recycled materials in North America, and that’s why we package up Fable products in it. It’s simple, really.

How to Recycle of our packaging

All you need to do is flatten the boxes and packing paper, then place them curbside or wherever you put other recyclable products like cans, bottles, and cartons.

If your box included packing peanuts, they are biodegradable. Just place them in the sink and immerse them in water—they’ll easily break down and dissolve.

Our Sustainability

Just as we consider the long “shelf life” of our aesthetically timeless tableware, so too do we consider the longevity of our planet and our impact upon it. We believe that companies should always work together in the best interests our environment.

That’s why we’re proudly carbon neutral, which means that Fable’s total carbon emissions are offset by funding an equivalent amount of carbon savings elsewhere in the world. It’s also why we’re actively working to minimize our carbon intensity by reducing the Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHGs) that occur when shipping products from our global suppliers to our Canadian distribution center. And, with our Certified Pending B Corp designation, we’ve solidified our ongoing commitment to the balance of purpose and profit.

As we work toward our zero-waste goal, we ask that our vendors—as experts in their fields—work with us on innovative ways to help. That includes crafting pieces with intention, so that they last for years to come, and so much more.
