Broomball.com cares deeply about the environment and reducing waste. We recycle! We recycle boxes and packaging and if possible we will ship a product in the box that the product came in. A few good examples would be that we will ship a pair of shoes in the shoe box. Or, when a customer orders a broom and a pair of shoes, we will take the shoes out of the box and ship in a longer box that will fit the broom and shoes. Or, if you put together a group order with multiple items, Broomball.com will condense your order to ship it in a smaller box to save your group on shipping. We understand that you may want a clean box if it is a gift. You can request that we ship the order in a new box if you would like. All you have to do is make a note in the instruction/comment box at check out or email or text us. If not requested, we will ship in the best way possible to reduce waste and shipping costs.
