Our vision of a better future begins with awareness of the habitat we impact with our actions. In the Planet & Climate field of action, we face up to our responsibility towards our planet.
As a result, we are aiming to save more resources and reduce emissions – from production and packaging right through to transport and logistics – because we care about our planet.
We avoid packaging during transport and in our production processes to save resources and minimise the impact on our environment. Where this is not possible, we opt for more sustainable alternatives, like in our retail stores and online shop. The paper used for the FSC-certified bags, boxes and shipping pouches is made from wood grown under responsible forestry conditions, while the handles of our shipping boxes are made from bioplastic created from renewable plants. In addition, the CO2 emissions generated during manufacture are calculated and offset through support for selected climate products.
We charge a fee of 20 cents per paper bag to generate awareness of more sustainable packaging options and encourage shoppers to use carrier bags multiple times. This leads to approximately 70 percent fewer bags being given out. As a further alternative to promote a conscious approach to packaging, we offer our durable reusable bags made from 100% recycled nylon in two sizes – which can be folded down and stashed in any handbag.
