Transportation & Packaging
Packaging and transport make up two areas where we have a potential large adverse impact on especially the environment. The manufacture of various packaging materials and the transport from India to Denmark itself are potentially high-impact in terms of e.g., natural resources, water use, and not least CO2-emissions. We always choose the best packaging and transportation method for the environment.
We make use of multiple sorts of packaging materials to protect our goods in the best manner during many months of transport and storage. We strive to always choose the better option for our packaging materials, to decrease the general consumption as well as to find the better and more sustainable solution for the packaging materials that we cannot do without.
We use as little stuffing in our products as practically possible. Only hard/stiff bags are packed with stuffing, so the shape and functionality is not compromised during transport and storage. We use as little protection packaging as possible, however we are forced to use e.g., paper tissue and foam, so metal parts and handles do not damage the products during transport and storage.
All our products are equipped with hangtags and swingtags. We are currently working on changing the conventional paperboard with FSC-certified paperboard, or potentially recycled organic cotton from production leftovers. Furthermore, all our products are packed with Micro-Pak Dri Clay bags to counteract mould and mildew during transport – and our polybags are made of recycled plastic.
Additionally, we are working on exploring sustainable solutions within shipment cartons and tape.
In regards to transportation, we always aim to transport our goods from India to Denmark by sea freight as a starting point. Our collections are made up of predominantly NOOS styles and only two collections a year. We forecast and plan our procurement approx. every other month, thereby securing a steady flow of orders for production and transport. In the case of production delays we always support our suppliers in any way possible and only shift to air transport when it is urgently needed, as it is expensive and environmentally burdensome.
