Kustom Clothing is committed to reducing its environmental impact and we continually monitor and improve our environmental performance wherever we can, as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods.
polythene bags & single use plastic
As one of our first major improvements, we have eliminated the procedure of individually packing and bagging items as part of bulk orders. We will now only use individual plastic packaging where a customer makes a specific request for it, or where necessary to protect the garment or print.
If your items absolutely have to be individually bagged, please let us know at the time of ordering.
100% of the cardboard that comes in to our business is either reused in-house or sent for recycling.
carbon emissions reduction
We have taken the decision to no longer automatically ship physical copies of our catalogue to all customers. Historically these were sent out in vast numbers and at no small cost, but they are big bulky items and this practice is extremely wasteful and harmful to the environment, so we have ended it. This is just the first step towards reducing our overall carbon footprint.
We do appreciate that these are only tiny steps, but they are going in the right direction and every little helps. We will strive to devise and incorporate as many other new environmentally friendly procedures as possible, and they will be added to this document as and when they come in to practice.
If you have any suggestions about how we might be able to improve performance in this area, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
