We are very excited to announce that we will begin a transition to using 100% compostable mailer bags for single item orders* from No Issue Co. who are paving the way in plant-based packaging! We are in the process of using up the rest of our current recyclable packaging and expect to be fully transitioned to noissue.co's compostable bags for single item orders* by January 2020.
*For multiple item orders that do not fit in a mailer, we will use recycled cardboard cartons.
It's no secret that the fashion world has not been kind to our world, particularly with the rise of Fast Fashion generating short-lived items of low quality that cultivated a habit of buying, wearing and replacing items multiple times within a year.
DID YOU KNOW?
"The apparel and footwear industries account for a combined estimate of 8% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, and fashion is the third highest-polluting industry in the world. A 2016 McKinsey report revealed that three-fifths of all clothing items will end up in an incinerator or landfill within a year after being produced."
SAYING NO TO EXCESS TISSUE PAPER PACKAGING
We believe in Slow Fashion and doing our best to make our contribution (or rather less of a waste contribution to the fashion industry!). Before moving to the 100% compostable bags, we disliked the way most shoeboxes came with excess tissue paper that just ended up in the bin. So we had already found a way to significantly reduce tissue paper wastage by changing the way we package our shoes and removing almost all tissue paper. For those who have bought our shoes, you will know how our shoes come packaged - you'll only find a very minimal amount of tissue paper in the inner soles!

We love what No Issue Co. are doing with their innovation in all types of packaging, and apart from that they also plant a tree on our behalf. Ours is in Indonesia!
