Green Straw Hat
What do we do to contribute to make a greener planet? Read carefully.
The Animals Observatory has a global vision about sustainability. We make decisions to reduce the impact of the manufacturing but also to improve the relationships with our stakeholders. We locate the production mainly between Spain and Portugal to reduce the pollution generated by long distance transportation. We have long lasting relationships with the factories we work with, as one of our goals is to have stable and trustworthy relationships with our suppliers. The Animals Observatory collaborates with the Carbon Neutral UPS program. Throughout this program, we offset the CO2 emissions generated by the transport of packages. This collaboration has allowed us to mitigate 74.7 tones of CO2 between July and December of 2020. Other features include the Seaqual Initiative, a neighbouring organization that works with waste management and recycling industries to transform marine litter into upcycled marine plastic, so that leading brands and manufacturers can create sustainable products.
As for our deliveries, we use hang tag labels made with recycled paper. Our packaging is made with kraft paper bags (which uses less bleaching chemicals during the production process). We also have paper packing tape. The plastic bags that secure the clothes in the packaging are recycled and recyclable.
