Shipping and Delivery
Our preferred shipping partner is UPS, who is a founding member of the SmartWay Transport Partnership program. This program was launched in 2004 by the EPA to reduce transportation-related emissions by creating incentives to improve supply chain fuel efficiency. Their environmental commitment is important to us as we try to be mindful of the impact that shipping our goods has on both people and planet.
Shipping Schedule (non-holiday)
Our goal is to process and ship your order within 2 - 5 business days of receipt. Our default shipment method is UPS Ground. When shipping UPS Ground please allow for 5 - 7 business days for your delivery to arrive as transit time depends upon your geographic location within the continental United States. Please refer to the map here for the average nationwide transit times for UPS ground shipments.
Expedited shipping options are also available at the point of check out for orders that require a faster delivery at an additional charge. Orders selected for next-day shipping that are placed before 1pm ET will ship the same day, those placed after will ship the following day. If you select next day on a Friday, please be advised that your package will not be delivered until Monday.

Our Warehouse and its Environmental Impact
We are constantly working to have the least environmental impact in our business and part of this is done through our development of mindful distribution. We are committed to supporting and assisting in the expansion of options for environmentally friendly and energy-efficient shipping options and this starts with our warehouse. Our packaging also plays a part as our goods are shipped in boxes and envelopes made of 100% recycled content, with the envelopes also being biodegradable. The consumer also plays a valuable role here in the shipment choices made and the impact that they have as we recommend shipping non-expedited if at all possible as ground deliveries are much more fuel-efficient than overnight. Also we encourage customers to combine orders whenever possible and reuse, repurpose or recycle the boxes their order ships in.
