  • Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plans
    As part of our NPD (New Product Development) and product re-ordering we question whether there are more sustainable options or whether a product can be improved making it more eco-friendly.
    Sustainability initiatives
    Improving our packaging has been our priority and in 2022 we have achieved the following, where possible: Replaced inner polyester bag packaging with compostable, biodegradable or recycled packaging. Replaced plastic gimbals with natural alternatives such as cotton strings or jute. Removed white card tags with added silk finish - the silk finish rendered the card unrecyclable. Sourced FSC Kraft board tags and headers. Removed plastic napkin hangers and replaced with kraft board hangers. Removed plastic hanging tags and replaced with kraft board headers. Removed plastic bag consumer packaging from throws, tablecloths, aprons, runners, napkins, placemats
    Pledges for the year
    Extend our use of recycled materials, making throws, cushion covers and rugs from RPET. We are continuing to source products in jute, sea grass, rattan, water hyacinth and pandanus, all naturally occuring and eco friendly.
