Curvy Community, our plans to help save the environment!
As most of you know, there is a major focus on individuals and companies to reduce the amount of waste that we use.
Here at Pablo & Kat, we take our responsibilities seriously and as such, have created an environmental strategy that we want to share with you.
Some changes have are already been implemented and other changes will be introduced over the coming months.
What we have already actioned.
We have stopped adding a hard copy of your packing list to the parcels that we send out.
We do this to reduce the amount of paper used at our 3rd Party Distribution Centre. We know that when you place your order, you receive an automated email with your order summary. You can use the electronic copy of the order to check your delivery when it arrives.
We have stopped adding a ‘Thankyou’ card to the parcels that we send out.
Whilst this is a nice to have, we believe that contributing to the improvement of our environment is a much better option for future generations.
The Pablo & Kat team is currently working on other ways to say thankyou to the Curvy Community for their support.
What is coming!
We are changing our Mailer Bags
From now on you will start to see the phasing out of the plain white poly satchels and phasing in of the 100% home compostable Ecomailer Bags. These bags have been tested and certified to Australian Standards.
Simply remove any labels or stickers & place them in your compost bin.
You can also check in with your local council if they allow the disposal of compostable packaging in green bins. Some councils do & some don’t.
For more information on these bags, head over to the HEAPSGOOD website. https://heapsgoodpackaging.com.au/
We are commencing the rollout with the larger bags, so for those Curvy Women who purchase multiple items, you will start to receive your parcels in these new bags. Be on the look out for them.
In The Future
If you are asking yourself, why do Pablo & Kat place their garments in Poly bags. Here’s why!
To protect the item. You spend your hard earned money on purchasing our products and we want to make sure they are in the best possible condition, when you receive them.
We are currently working towards replacing our current Poly bags with a new compostable bag, we hope to have this part of our strategy rolled out by the early part of 2021.
As our new bag starts to roll out, we will stop wrapping your items in tissue, we will remove it completely. It is another reduction.
We know that all you Curvy Shoppers, will understand the significant changes we have introduced that will positively impact the environment.
Whilst we all love to receive a beautifully wrapped gift in the mail, we believe that doing our bit to save the planet for future generations, would truly be a more beautiful gift.
Love Lives Here!
