As a company, we understand that environmental sustainability is not just a responsibility, but a passion. We recognize the importance of preserving the planet for future generations and are committed to doing our part in reducing our environmental impact.
One of the ways we work towards environmental sustainability is by implementing waste management practices. We are conscious of the fact that the retail fashion industry has the potential to generate an enormous amount of waste, and we are determined to minimize our impact on landfill. In our efforts to reduce waste, we take great care in separating all waste in-store and work with NT Recycling Services (NTRS) to responsibly manage our commercial waste. This has enabled us to reduce our general waste to negligible volumes, despite our sizable operations. We are also meticulous about separating recyclables into different categories, including soft plastics, paper and cardboard, compostables, and ‘other’ recyclables.
We collect drink containers that are eligible for the Container Deposits Scheme and give them to a neighbor to supplement their old-age pension. In addition, we voluntarily serve as a collection point for used Nespresso capsules, which are returned to Nespresso in bulk for processing. Our commitment to environmental sustainability extends beyond waste management to other areas of our operations. For instance, we have implemented energy-saving measures throughout our stores and offices, such as using LED lighting and installing motion sensors to ensure that lights are only on when needed. We have also reduced our water usage by implementing low-flow toilets and faucets.
Furthermore, we are committed to working with suppliers and manufacturers who share our values and have environmentally conscious practices. We believe that collaboration is key to creating a sustainable supply chain that supports both people and the planet.
At the core of our commitment to environmental sustainability is a belief in the power of small actions. We understand that every small action counts and are constantly seeking new ways to improve our practices and reduce our impact on the planet. Our goal is to inspire others to join us in creating a more sustainable future, where people and the planet thrive in harmony.
