Re: recycled packaging?
I think it's awesome, but maybe other people wouldn't? I think most wahms try to make their packaging as professional looking as possible, and then, byy using special bottles and jars, they have standard sizes and weights for their products.
When I first opened my etsy, I wanted to package my items in a plastic bag, and then ship in cereal boxes and pasta boxes- whatever empty boxes I had around. I was advised against it. :shrugs:
