2020 has undoubtedly been a crazy year so far! A year filled with experiences and challenges that none of us could have predicted or even anticipated. This has meant that many of us have taken a closer look at our lives and perhaps considered what we could be doing better.
Something we consider really important, as a brand, is the footprint that we leave behind on the world, and we’re continually looking at ways to be eco-friendlier. Below are some recent changes we’ve made to the business, to improve the way we engage with and impact on our planet.
- We’ve changed the supplier of our postage bags so that they're now made of 100% recycled materials
- We've also changed the packaging bags for our slippers and garments. They used to be a polythene bag which has now been replaced with a starch bag so it's 100% biodegradable. This means you can pop it into the compost or your food waste and over time it will break down, returning plant based nutrients to the earth.
- Like many businesses the current situation has meant that more of us are working from home. Now we know for many businesses it wasn’t necessarily a choice to move to mass home-working but consider for a minute the impact that’s had on cutting down the commute. For us at Bedroom Athletics it’s meant we've reduced our commuter miles by 26,000 a year! Like many businesses, we too are now considering when, how and if we ever return to the daily commute in the same way.
These are just some of the ways we’re trying to think more consciously as a business about the changes we can make to offer a more eco-friendly product and service. If we all make even just some small changes, collectively we can have a much bigger and more lasting impact.
