A warm welcome 👋

Hello! I'm Alexandra, the founder of Vérité and before I show you around, I want to say thank you for joining us on this mission of collective climate action. We couldn't do this without your support.

How did I start Vérité Packaging?

I love the comfort of ordering something online, but I would always get plastic packaging no matter what I ordered. As consumers, we want to unpack our orders as soon as we get them and don't think of the packaging it comes in. It sort of dissapears as soon as we put it in the trash. But the reality is that it really doesn't. Looking around, I was concerned with the amount of plastic packaging surrounding us everywhere, and that made me think "Where is all this plastic going after we use it?". Seeing pictures and videos of animals, birds and fish stuck and choked by plastic bags made me extremely sad and I decided to do all I can to change this.

Doing a lot of research on sustainable plastic alternatives I happily realized that there are materials that work just as well as plastic! They offered the same protection, same purpose, but so much better for the environment. How cool would it be to live in a circular economy, where everything produced is reused, repurposed, recycled or, even better, goes back to nature in the form of compost?

At Vérité, we understand the need to evolve and make a continuous, conscious effort to eliminate harmful plastic use in any way we can. In our current market when businesses are actively seeking to stand out, a company’s branding and image are one of the most crucial to their success, along with their values and beliefs. We want to do our part to contribute to and influence sustainable measures through the packaging industry, from small to big. That's our Promise Promise.

What does our name mean?

Vérité (accent on last e) in translation from french: Verity (eng.) - a true principle or belief, especially one of fundamental importance.
