How can you use your business to represent yourself as a person, as well as a store?
It’s now more possible than ever for your brand to help further your personal and philosophical goals. This includes everything from your choice of raw materials, to the type of dispatch you use, and even what messages you put out to the world.
To that end, it’s important to work with a partner who shares your passion and world view, and enables you to put that passion into your brand.
We offer clients the ability to choose sustainable garments that have been ethically sourced, and inclusive styles that embrace gender neutrality. We give you the opportunity to join schemes like Fair Wear Foundation and B1G1, which allow businesses to make positive contributions to great causes.
Now we’re offering clients the option of eco-friendly delivery packaging, in the form of Oxo-Biodegradable mailing bags.
These polythene bags are just as strong, lightweight and sealable as ordinary mailing bags, but they have a massive upside for the rest of the world. Thanks to an additive called 'Reverte’ these polythene bags become biodegradable in the environment.
'Reverte’ is an additive designed specifically to address the issue of plastic waste that is rife and cannot be realistically collected. Regular plastic bags can take up to 1000 years to decompose in a landfill. During that 1000 year timeline, plastic bags can find their way into our sewer systems and rivers, and it’s increasingly common for them to be eaten by wildlife. Animals who swallow plastic bags suffer from intestinal obstructions, which typically lead to a long, slow and painful death.
Reverte is introduced to plastic at the manufacturing stage. The complex formulation is dosed in at a very low level, and the carefully developed complex additive package within Reverte is now within the plastic.
When these Oxo-Biodegradable bags have finished their useful life and are exposed to a natural environment, a combination of sunlight, moisture and bacteria triggers the breakdown of the polythene and the bag begins to fall apart.
Over a few months these responsible mailing bags degrade in nature, in much the same way as grass cuttings and straw. At the end of the process the bags completely dissolve, and are converted into CO2, H2O and harmless organic matter.
If you’re passionate about ethical and organic clothes, Oxo-Biodegradable mailing bags send a clear message to your customers - that your brand cares about the environment and does everything possible to be responsible and sustainable.
