  • Sustainable Supply Solutions

    Ethical sourcing is embedded at the heart of our supply chain management. Many of our products are made from non-recyclable material, for having to be durable and resistant in their operational environments. However, our supply partners have taken initiatives in giving them a second chance, to be made into other meaningful products, such as waste bins, anti-scratch paints, airplane plastic media blast and even colorful flowerpots.

  • Sustainable Flagship Store

    Our biggest flagship store in Alexandria, Sydney has a number of energy and water-saving features including rain-water and natural lighting harvesting. The rain water tanks that are displayed and also hidden capture the water off the roof and feed the 1200 plus plants, plumb the water play area and display points, apart from being used for our working toilets. We also have a number of light panels in the roof that provide natural light all day long that allow us to consume less electricity in the space. What’s more, we actually upcycle products in-house too, to make product displays!

  • Sustainable Packaging

    We are proud of our Partner Membership with the Australian Packaging Convent (APCO) who guides the recyclability of our packaging options. We have also adopted the Australian Packaging Recycling Label (ARL) principles throughout our new product ranges across Australia and New Zealand. In 2019, we commenced a program to reduce the volume of cardboard use by reviewing pack sizes, reducing board grade thickness and downsizing where appropriate. Since then we have reduced a significant amount of polyfoam from packaging within a number of our core product ranges.
