REDUCING OUR FASHION FOOTPRINT
5 REASONS WHY SHOPPING WITH WOVEN DOESN'T COST THE EARTH...
As a small independent family-run business, we are 100% committed to do business in ways that are good for people and the planet, because we want our environment to be as nice as your new outfit!← Back To Store
#1 - ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING
When you shop with us online, we always put the environment first when it comes to packaging up your order.
First, we'll carefully wrap your order in tissue paper before using one of our cardboard mailing bags or cardboard boxes - all are fully recyclable, biodegradable, and made from recycled materials!
#2 - ZERO EMISSIONS DELIVERY
We've teamed up with local eco-friendly business, ZMOVE, who offer zero-emissions delivery to all local addresses (within 5 miles of our store).
Typically, ZMOVE will deliver your orders using an e-Bike. At Woven, we're covering the additional cost of this service for our customers so it's completely FREE for you!
This service is currently available on Tuesdays & Saturdays - Please order before 2pm on the day prior so we can get your prepare your order ready for the team at ZMOVE!
#3 - ECO-FRIENDLY PAPER BAGS
In our store, you won't find any plastic bags (or any hidden 5p/10p charges) - instead your items will be carefully wrapped in tissue paper before being placed in one of our eco-friendly paper bags - please remember to re-use or recycle these once you get home if you can!
Alternatively you could also bring your own re-usable bag with you, we'll happily wrap your purchases in tissue paper first so that it stays safe and clean during transport!
#4 - ECO-FRIENDLY MANUFACTURERS
We work alongside all of our manufacturers to help reduce the environmental impact of their manufacturing and supply process. One of our favourite brands, Van Gils, have recently launched their first sustainable collection, The Green Stitch Collection.
All the products within this collection are produced using sustainable fabrics and fibres, without sacrificing on quality and comfort.
Beside the products themselves, we are also working with our suppliers to discover other ways to think about sustainability. We regularly choose to transport deliveries via the sea or road, instead of by plane due to the higher CO2 emissions.
#5 - PLANTING TREES
We’ve teamed up with our packaging supplier in order to work with Eden Reforestation Projects and fund the planting of trees. So each time we restock our packaging supplies, we're funding a brand new tree!
By doing this we can help to add trees back to areas across the globe that have been deforested, helping to look after our environment and help people in the process.
