Showing interest in sustainability and ethics is the first step to creating change. As a small business, it has never sat well watching the amount of plastic waste created by packaging orders. From the plastic poly-bags that the suppliers send the products in, to the delivery postage bags, to the labels. It's frightening!
Everyone can do their small part in helping reduce the amount of plastic we use, so I felt obligated to make this change on behalf of my business and also help you feel better about knowing you are buying from a small brand that cares about our environment.
GO GREEN CARBON NEUTRAL SHIPPING
We ship all International orders with DHL's GOGREEN worldwide environmental protection programme. It's main goal is to reduce and avoid the emissions of greenhouse gasses and local air pollutants. They have a commitment to a zero-emissions target.
Our humble office runs on minimal energy. We are conscious to save energy wherever we can in whatever we do. We compost all our food waste. We are always on the lookout for ways to lessen our impact on the environment and understand how important composting and recycling is.
We have just made the change to using sustainable packaging with betterpackaging.co. Their plant-based courier satchels are 100% biodegradable and compostable! They feel and behave exactly like plastic sans the toxic residues. We encourage reusing them after you receive your order, but if you have no further use for them, these compostable bags can simple be added into your compost bin or garden waste at home.
Another thing we have been doing since the very beginning of our business is shipping every order in a reusable, un-bleached calico drawstring bag, saving huge amounts of wasted cardboard and plastic each year.
We are currently endeavouring to work out the most ethical and less harmful way to manufacture our shoes for the future. It is an area that requires more extensive research, but we are asking the questions now and working towards the best way.
We believe that sustainability is a journey and we are so happy to be on this path. We have started creating non-leather shoes and are working to continually strive towards this road. Click here to shop our vegan shoes.
Thank you so much for your unwavering support! We wouldn’t have made it this far without you.
