World Earth Day 2022
Since our beginning in 1790, we have prided ourselves on the long-lasting nature of our products. Despite growing over the years to include accessories, luggage and clothing, our environmental ethos has remained as steadfast as ever – product longevity before anything else.
New to our luggage collection this season is the wonderful Roka London, who not only create compact and stylish designs, but also use 12-15 recycled plastic bottles in each bag! In addition, they are constantly developing manufacturing methods to reduce their carbon footprint.
An exciting addition to our collection is Natural World Eco who are working to help tackle manufacturing waste by recycling all the offcuts, scraps and unused materials from their shoes, including their organic cotton and sustainably-sourced rubber. Their packaging is also crafted from 100% recycled material.
Birkenstock is a perfect example of sustainability done right. Committed to the protection of natural resources, with cork, jute and natural leather being among the most important, Birkenstock is using these materials in innovative ways to reduce our reliance on synthetic components.
Doing our bit
All our own online orders are packaged in a recyclable cardboard box or compostable paper bag, sealed with paper tape and each one with a handwritten note.
But it doesn’t stop there – all our in-store bags are made from certified recycled paper too, so you can be sure that no matter how you shop, your choices make a difference.
