Our Impact

Sustainability & Ethical business Practices are the core foundation of our business. We all have a role to play to be a powerful catalyst for change.

 

Fair Trader of Australia 

From inception, we have believed that a business can redefine success to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. While we knew we are doing steps in this direction, we wanted an external audit for this. As a result, we went through the process with Fair Trade Association of Australia and New Zealand.

In August 2021, we were endorsed as a Fair Trader of Australia by Fair Trade Association and we are super excited. This gives confidence, visibility and transparency to our customers, producers and partners that we would invest our effort, time and energy in accordance with 10 Fair Trade principles and would always keep our community and planet first.

 

Responsible production

We use renewable, or upcycled raw materials for making our beautiful homewares, jewellery and garden accessories. We try to select raw materials based on their suitability, practicality and end of life options. Thus we never use materials like plastic and encourage use of sustainable sourced materials like mango wood, cloths, scrap metal.

 

Lowering our packaging & shipping footprint

Reducing waste is important to us and it starts right from the manufacturing process until the product has reached its end of life. 

We along with our Fair Trade artisan groups take a number of steps in this direction. We have worked with our suppliers to ensure that products are not packed in individual soft plastic sleeves and are shipped to us via sea freight in cardboard boxes with either cardboard or shredded paper as space filler.

We keep minimal branding on our products and never use plastic tags or stickers.

We make use of compostable mailers that are certified home compostable and are making the switch to B-Corp certified The Better Packaging Co. in a bid to ensure that we continue to provide compostable mailers to our customer and we partner with a company which shares our beliefs and values.

We ship all orders via Australia Post which offsets carbon for all of the deliveries handled by them.

Our wood products are easily recyclable at the end of their life. Any metal products are also recyclable via local council programs.
