The Spoonflower brand provides the option of recycled canvas fabric, Repreve, positively impacting the environment by participating in the Circular Economy, an industrial system that is restorative or regenerative by intention and design. In 2021, Spoonflower supported the recycling of more than 3,000 bottles through the sales of Repreve fabric.
Shutterfly’s production sites engage in regular preventive maintenance on high-demand equipment to ensure that they are functioning efficiently.
To reduce the electricity used for lighting, Shutterfly uses motion-sensors where feasible and has several facilities retrofitted with LED lighting.
Many production sites participate in supplier consumable take-back programs, such as the HP Planet Program, Xerox Green World Alliance, Konica Minolta cartridge recycling.
All locations practice responsible e-waste recycling efforts, which have resulted in more than 36,000 pounds of waste diverted from the landfill. The BorrowLenses brand minimizes waste and extends product end of life by renting photography equipment until it becomes older, when it is sold at a discount. To add to the environmental benefits of this business model, BorrowLenses re-uses the cardboard shipping boxes and filler which significantly reduces packaging waste.
Shutterfly recognizes the impacts tied to increased Greenhouse Gas emissions and has several initiatives in place to reduce the emissions tied to purchased electricity.
All sites encourage emissions reductions by randomly selecting employees who work from home, carpooling, biking or taking public transit to receive prizes quarterly.
We donate obsolete inventory or material review to national nonprofits. In 2021 alone, we donated 24 tons - or 48,000 pounds - of material.
We currently have two national partners, Habitat for Humanity and Kids in Need Foundation, and work with a number of smaller local non-profit organizations to repurpose this material.
