*Waste refers to materials that cannot be re-used and recycled- unusable byproducts that are landfill disposed. Waste can not be properly composted.
*Production refers to the actions taken as to create a customers order. Does not include shipping and receiving. Though gHwc's overall practices are generally zero waste, because other-party packaging materials can not be controlled, sometimes their materials have to be landfill disposed. gHwc advertises as zero waste production, and not 100% zero waste throughout as other-party practices are out of hands.
