The environment and sustainability are a focus for so many people and businesses as it becomes apparent that we all need to do our part to protect our planet, and that’s certainly true for us here at Lund London. As we grow and evolve as a company we continue to review the ways in which we can become more sustainable and reduce our impact on the planet.
The issues with plastic waste in our oceans are widely reported and according to some reports, plastic could outweigh fish in the oceans by 2050, which is a truly terrifying thought. At Lund London, we are committed to doing what we can to contribute to the reduction of single use plastic waste. Our best selling re-useable water bottles and straws are a stylish and convenient way to choose to re-use and reduce your plastic waste.
Since launching our first collection in 2016, our team has been committed to ensuring our packaging is not only fit for purpose and beautiful, but also takes our environmental impact into consideration. Our most recent change to the packaging for our re-usable water bottles has meant that not only is the packaging made with recycled materials and fully recyclable, but we have reduced the amount of card used by 50%. This is something we’re really proud of as it will mean an average annual saving of more than 2 tonnes of card across our Skittle Bottle collection.
If you’ve been watching the new ‘Perfect Planet’ TV series (or any of the incredible nature series available), you can’t help but be aware of how our actions impact the world around us. As part of our mission to reduce our impact on the planet, we have recently signed up to the Ecologi climate positive workforce scheme. In our first 3 months we have planted 442 trees and contributed to a number of climate change projects, achieving a 35.21 ton carbon reduction – the equivalent of 87 thousand miles driven in a car or 27 long haul flights! We are excited to watch our forest grow and to see the impact of the climate change projects we are supporting through our Ecologi membership. Full details can be found our our Lund London Ecologi page.
We know there is always more we can do and one of our resolutions for 2021 is to continue to improve our sustainability credentials. We’ll keep you updated on our progress!
