We are eco friendly here at AEC!
Shortly after I started this business I switched to eco friendly options for all our packaging and mailers. There can be so much waste involved in ordering and shipping items online so you'll notice, when you order from AEC, that the packaging is very simple. I try to cut out the amount that you have to throw away. Even though packaging is simple, I can assure you that a lot of thought and care is behind that.
See below for detailed info on our sustainable measures taken at AEC.
