At Bourbon & Boots we believe that a life lived outdoors enjoying the lakes, streams, mountains, and rivers is a life well lived. As a Southern Brand raising our families in the Deep South we are blessed with a variety of magnificent outdoor landscapes from the low country of the Carolina, across the Smokey Mountains, the Ozarks, the Mississippi River, all the way to the Texas Hill Country. Because we love our part of the country so much and want to preserve our Southern Inspired lifestyle we're serious about our passion for the magnificent outdoors and are committed to doing our part to reduce our footprint through core practices around sustainability.
There are two core ways we practice a Sustainable Operations discipline:
#1: UpCycled Repurposed Merchandise
Our merchandising team works very closely with our suppliers to design and create a large majority of our products from materials that are being repurposed from their previous intent. Great examples of up cycling is reclaimed bourbon barrel, repurposed wine barrel, and the use of repurposed barnwood. These practices are illustrated in our bourbon barrel sunglasses, bourbon barrel pens, wine barrel frames, wine barrel pet beds, barn wood frames, as well as host of other products.
#2: Repurposed Shipping Materials
You won't find any plastic, bubble wrap, or peanuts in our packing material. We use boxes that contain a minimum of 30% recylcled kraft. Our packing materials are generated onsite by shredding old newspapers that we purchase in bulk from the oldest newspaper west of the Mississippi. Even the toner cartridges used in our printers to produce the packing list utilizes recycled toner cartridges.
The Bourbon & Boots family is thrilled to bring our Southern Inspired Merchandise and Lifestyle Stories to our friends and admirers and is doing our part to ensure our great outdoors is as sustainable as possible.
