Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now. – Alan Lakein, writer
I’m at a point in my business where I don’t go through much packaging for shipping, but I want to be prepared for the future that I want. Of course I’d like to sell more frequently in my Etsy Shop, so I am trying to plan for that. So, I purchased a case of 250 bubble mailers.
This many may last me quite a long time and right now I am searching for a place to keep them. However, just like I went through the initial 2 packs of 25 faster than expected, I imagine that I will be buying more before I know it. Bring on the sales… I’m ready for it!
Another goal is for my business to be one where I’m taking less and giving more, environmentally. So what I’m really excited about is that my new packaging is compostable, biodegradable and recyclable. I also recently started purchasing from suppliers that sell recycled silver as well.
What do you foresee in your future? How will you plan today? How do you reduce your carbon footprint?
