Q: Why is the name of the store "Bring Your Own?"
A: Our name originated from the desire to help people get in the "bring your own" mindset. We like to encourage people to always think about carrying their own water bottle, coffee mug, reusable shopping bag, etc. when they leave the house.
Q: Why was my online order shipped in plastic packaging, if part of your mission is to reduce plastic waste?
A: We reuse shipping supplies that we have saved over the years from personal online orders, as well as shipping materials that friends have donated. We are happy to reuse shipping materials, even if they are plastic. It's better than throwing them in the trash after one use!
All tape used is either brown paper tape, or a plant-derived cellulose tape. Both types of tape are 100% compostable.
Q: Do you do festivals and other events?
A: Yes! If you are interested in having us as a vendor at your event, please reach out. We'd be happy to set up a table/booth with our products.
Q: Are you hiring?
A: Not at the moment, but feel free to fill out an application (click here for application) and either drop it off at the shop or email it to us. We will keep it on file and review it when positions open up.
