We are by no means a plastic free business but we are trying to do our own little bit to help counter the vast volume of plastic waste. All our carrier bags are now paper, we use our own branded wooden hangers and those of you who came to our Spring Fashion Week will have taken away our complimentary Bamboo drinking cup.
My mission for this buying season is to work on those brands to get them to help reduce plastic waste. We are a small fish in a very big pond but at least if I initiate the conversation, it may get them thinking of alternative ways in which to package their clothing. Some are already doing it and send items boxed and not hung which reduces plastic wrapping which is great. As individuals I think we can all do our own little bit because each little contribution we make, will make a difference globally.
