Packaging, you sweet thing!
Packaging is a tricky topic that keeps the sustainability scene busy. We’d love to completely do without it. But, to ensure that our eco-fair TT pieces can be stored and shipped without damage, they have to be packaged cleverly.
Everything in plastic?
No way! Finding real alternatives is not that easy though. One alternative are so-called bioplastics that are oxo-degradable. Which means, they decompose under the influence of sunlight, oxygen and humidity. So far, so good. Until it became clear, that oxo-degradable doesn’t mean 100% degradable. What happens is: the material fragments into microplastics that remain in the environment, ouch! Our partner had already produced a larger quantity of these bags. Throwing them away directly didn’t seem sustainable either so we decided to take them.
Many eyes see more than one
On some bags you’ll still find the info 100% biodegradable that we missed to adjust accordingly which we realized thanks to one of our customers who recently pointed that ou to us. Through your feedback, you, dear customers, bring out the best in us: many eyes see more the one.
The good thing is: soon we can completely turn our backs on oxo-degradable plastic!
For the upcoming Spring/Summer collection, we are introducing bags based on cornstarch that are completely compostable, yeah!
Additionally, we are working on multipacks for 3 packs T-shirts etc. to save packaging material.
Several of our sweaters are wrapped in beautiful gym bags made of organic cotton: the perfect sporty accessory for multiple occasions.
The same applies to the packaging of our innovative Kapok Jackets: gym bags made of high-quality nylon, recycled e.g. from worn-out fishing nets.
Our organic 3 and 5 pack socks are held together by a beautiful paper banderole. More paper packaging, e.g. for T-shirts are coming: stay tuned!
Together with our production partner in the south of India, we created very special paper products, namely hangtags, envelopes and underwear packaging. All made of environmentally friendly and fairly manufactured paper recycled from cotton leftovers!
