BECOMING AN ECO FRIENDLY BRAND
How I do it:
When I started Dione Louise Homeware, I wanted to make it my mission to make my brand as sustainable as possible. In a world where pollution is seemingly unavoidable I wanted to make sure I was acting in an environmentally conscious way within my business, as well as my personal life. Over the last 6 months I have been researching ways to make sure I can do my bit and act in the best way possible. So, how do I do this?
I only use biodegradable bubble wrap (hoping to soon switch to paper bubble wrap)
I do not use any sellotape
All my stickers are printed on matt sticker paper
I use tacky brown paper tape instead of parcel tape
I buy recycled mailing bags and ones that can be reused and recycled
I try and package non-fabric items in cardboard
I only use paper bags at markets and fairs
I am constantly conscious about my waste and what I can do to reduce it
In my opinion, being sustainable is perhaps one of the most important things I can do as a business, and I am always researching ways I can be better at this. If everyone works together and makes changes, no matter how small, it can make the world a nicer place to live for everyone, and help protect the planet for future generations. It can also help preserve endangered species and protect wildlife.
