13. We will keep the WoolOvers family updated.
When a new member of the team starts with us, they receive a booklet explaining the benefits of our natural fibres, our heritage, and our environmentally friendly views. It’s a great, informative read with a good dose of our British sense of humour.
14. We will stop dispatching garments from suppliers in plastic bags.
All our garment bags are now compostable.
We are early adopters of this new compostable technology in the garment sector so the route to market has been slower than ideal. We are already using non-plastic in returns and our despatch bags are now paper.
15. We will stop repacking returns in plastic bags.
We only use FSA approved paper bags and these are reusable for you to return any garments to us.
16. We will deliver all our products in reusable paper bags.
We have gone one better! Our garments are packed in compostable bags, made from a mixture of PLA fermented plant starch (from either corn, cassava, sugarcane or sugar beet pulp) and fully biodegradable PBAT. These are then delivered to you in reusable paper bags that are biodegradable and FSA approved.
17. We will stop using plastic carrier bags in our shop.
Due to the huge pile up of plastic bags that we already had from way back, we have continued to use them in our shop so as to avoid them going in to landfill. We are close to having used them and can’t wait to introduce an environmentally friendly replacement.
