Louenhide is a global fashion brand offering beautiful and functional handbags, that don’t break the bank, for modern women seeking distinctive style.
Our brand centres around the values: timeless, trusted and authentic. These values lay the foundation for our approach to sustainability, as we seek progress over perfection, with transparency.
Louenhide has committed to long term sustainability measures to reduce our impact and generate positive change for our community. We are focussing our efforts on key changes across fabrications and supply chain, packaging and internal procedures to make meaningful progress.
Compostable Product Bag Packaging
Louenhide uses biodegradable & compostable product packaging. They are designed to breakdown in a home compost in 90 days. We are working in partnership with our manufacturers to implement our bio bags across all products.
Each year, we prevent at least 19,600kg of plastic from entering our supply chain and environment. We still have a long road of refinement ahead, but it is a major step forward in reducing our plastic waste.
Compostable Post Satchels
In February 2020, we introduced certified AS5810 home compostable post satchels by The Better Packaging Co for all online orders. Made from 100% biodegradable and compostable materials: corn starch, PLA and PBAT, these satchels are designed to breakdown in 90 days in a home compost. Please note, the postage label is also compostable. We estimate by making this switch to compostable satchels, approximately 1600kg of plastic (1.6metric tonnes) will avoid entering landfill per year.
Please reuse your satchel if you have a return. Repack your item in the satchel using the second seal and affix a new label over the top. *If you don’t have a compost at home you can find a local compost location with Planet Ark or Share Waste
