“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” We’ve all heard it before. But here at CheapHumidors.com, we live it. And in doing so, we’re able to pass the savings onto you!
You might be wondering why your humidor was shipped to you in a box from Aunt Margot’s Ketchup Factory or maybe a small container from Granny Smith’s Candy Apple Farm. It’s because we don’t let a cardboard box go to waste! We encourage our employees to bring in whatever leftover boxes they have lying around the house from their countless cat toy purchases on Amazon (speaking from experience). There’s no reason those cat toys have to be the last products that those boxes see! Believe it or not, boxes can hold just about anything. So instead of breaking them down and hauling them to the dump, we just recycle and reuse them!
Not to mention, our box supplier raised their rates and we now pay almost $2 a box for the large size! These poor, overvalued boxes live a sad life of approximately 72 hours. They’re born, pumped full of cool stuff, dropped at your door and discarded forever! And then that $2 is trash!
When it comes to enforcing our strict recycling protocols, there’s one person who is the General Patton of our recycling army: (Sergeant) Kelly Sabot. She has planted bins in every corner of the CheapHumidors.com warehouse to collect paper, plastic, and tin cans. With all the smoking and boozing we do during product testing, you can imagine how fast those tin bins fill up! If Kelly even senses that you may have thrown a recyclable into the trash can, she can and she will make you regret it. Legend has it that one time she made a warehouse worker dive head first into the dumpster to retrieve a straw wrapper.
But this is one of the main reasons why our prices are so low. We recycle. A lot. If it were somehow possible to physically rearrange the molecules in cigar ash, Kelly would figure it out and recycle cigars, which would then most likely be immediately smoked by our staff.
The point is, next time you get a package from us that has Pat’s Pet Supply logos all over it, just remember that it’s a small price to pay to get the lowest prices on cigars, humidors, and accessories!
