At Louenhide, our environment is dear to us. We are committed to introducing new sustainability measures to reduce our footprint. Our journey into sustainability is continuously changing; we are focusing on making small changes in considered steps to achieve our goals.
Our 2020 Goal
By the conclusion of 2020, Louenhide are aiming for all products to be packed into compostable bags and postage satchels.
So how are we going to get there?
Compostable Product Bag Packaging
Louenhide are transitioning to biodegradable & compostable product packaging on all products. Of our AW20 range, 80% of products are packaged in compostable bags. 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 and finalise our Home Compostable certifications.
This season, we have prevented at least 9800kg 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 are introducing 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 switching 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. We have plans with our neighbours at The Soul Pantry, a local florist/nursery, to dispose of your returned bags in their compost!
