What is Kay Inay?
Kay Inay is a Tagalog phrase which could mean “mom’s”, “to mom”, “for mom”.
It is a woman-of-color/mom-owned gift company. We offer curated gift boxes designed to pamper, inspired by moms. We have gifts for a variety of occasions and they are for anyone who you want to show some love to, at least through gifts, including yourself.
Kay Inay gift boxes feature Canadian brands and businesses. We believe in the power of supporting local businesses and the positive impact it has to the community we live in.
SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY
We aim to highlight natural, organic and sustainable local Canadian products in every gift box.
We always intend to be mindful of our packaging to be environmentally friendly.
Our packaging currently includes:
▪️Reusable and recyclable corrugated kraft mailer box
▪️Paper Gift Boxes made with recycled content
▪️Easily reusable rigid gift boxes
▪️Locally-sourced wooden box made from pine and birch wood
▪️100% Recycled Paper Bags
▪️Tissue paper made with recycled content
▪️Inserts are natural-feel paper stock made with 100% recycled materials
▪️Parchment shred used as filler is made with recycled content
▪️Biodegradable kraft wrapping paper made from 100% recycled material
▪️All natural biodegradable jute twine
▪️Reinforced gummed kraft paper tape
▪️Reusable satin ribbon
▪️Some of our sticker labels are made of 100% recycled material, processed chlorine-free and are printed using soy-based inks.
We do our best to be as minimal as possible in our packaging, while also keeping your gift box presentable. For shipping, we reuse the boxes and fillers (i.e. kraft paper and bubble wrap) from our suppliers’ packages so nothing goes to waste unnecessarily.
We still have a long way to go when it comes to sustainability, but we will continue to improve on our ways to make it better for you and most especially, better for the environment.
FEATURED CHARITY, ONE CAUSE AT A TIME
A portion of our sales is donated to a featured charity close to our hearts. We dedicated a page for this to discuss a little about it. Let’s make this world a better place by supporting one cause at a time.
We care deeply about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature. That’s why we’re thrilled to share that we’re partnering with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every purchase made.
To start with, and to commemorate our launch, we planted 40 trees in the Amazon Rainforest.
Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and well-being, and create jobs for social impact. We’re honored to have reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of our business model.
