The plastic crisis facing the planet is causing untold environmental damage and we believe we have a responsibility to ourselves, our customers and the planet to make our packing as sustainable as possible. From the bags your clothing is stored and sent to you in, to the swing-tags and string we use to attach them, we take a holistic approach to create a complete sustainable packaging solution.
100% SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS
We use 100% FSC Certified Brown Paper Mailing Bags to send your orders to you, which utilises a water-based adhesive strip to close. The bags are made from 100% sustainable materials, are plant-based and plastic-Free. They are 100% reusable, recyclable and compostable and are made right here in the UK.
100% Biodegradable & Water Soluble
In October 2020 we introduced “LEAVE NO TRACE BAGS”, a hugely exciting moment for us as it helped solve the question of how we keep your products protected on their journey from our suppliers and factories, to our warehouse and ultimately to you in a sustainable way. These garment bags are not only biodegradable and water-soluble, but break down harmlessly to non-toxic biomass in soil and sea.
In 2021 we began rolling out our new 100% Biodegradable & Compostable garment bags, as part of our sustainable packaging solution. We hope you love them as much as we do.
All we ask is that you dispose of the all our sustaiunable package in the appropriate way and of course with Nature and the Beas in mind...We get a lot of questions about the science behind our "LEAVE NO TRACE" bags work, so have a read below, if you love a little chemistry...
HOW IT WORKS
Made from a specially formulated polymer resin using Polyvinylalcohol (PVOH). PVOH is still a polymer, but the major differentiator from traditional plastics is that the material is hydrophilic (i.e. it loves water). This means it breaks down quickly in the marine environment without attracting other toxins or forming microplastics, as traditional polymers would.
As the material degrades, smaller oxidized polymer chains are formed that eventually break down to carbon dioxide and water. The material does not form toxic microplastics or yield any harmful products at any stage of the breakdown and biodegradation process. The ink used is also non-toxic and food-safe, so there are no nasty chemicals produced as the bag breaks down. To know more
