At Destira, we try our best to do our part to help by using sustainable packaging and practices while also continuing to research new practices to continue to be as sustainable as possible. 
  • Our polymailers from noissue are made of 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) material which gives waste a second life instead of further contributing to the already large amount of waste in circulation.
  • We are conscious and strategic about our choice in packaging for each order to minimize the use of excess material.
  • We are a part of the noissue eco-alliance program, which helps plant trees worldwide.
  • We practice carbon-neutral shipping. By shipping carbon neutral, we are reducing our carbon footprint which is a leading cause of climate change around the world. Learn more about shipping carbon-neutral here.
  • We use our excess fabric from leotards and unitards to create accessories such as grip bags, scrunchies, and doll leotards to minimize fabric waste

We would love any ideas you may have for us on how we can be more eco-friendly. Share your thoughts with us by emailing us at
