@JOYSofGLASS The definition for vegan is without the use of animal products, and although a lot of vegans may be doing it for environmental reasons and also try hard to be green, that is a separate thing. Something can be vegan and very bad for the planet, just as long as it hasn’t used animals in any way.
It does seem odd, but you’re imagining the sort of person who would be a vegan and putting their morals into what it should be, but for clear labelling you just have to think of the dictionary definition, because everyone’s idea of what should be vegan might be slightly different.
I hope those using compostable packaging are also informing their buyers of the best way to dispose of it, as apparently some of these take even longer to degrade in landfill than regular packaging, as it wasn’t designed for those conditions.
@Dosrodgerspottery bubble wrap that breaks down in either landfill or compost in 6 months sounds good though! I wouldn’t feel safe sending my paintings without some form of bubblewrap either, so I’ll have to look into that (although it’s going to be quite a while until I’m through with my current supply of bubble wrap, and I always think it’s best to use up and resuse what you’ve already got).
