Transparency and sustainability are qualities that we value highly here at Lahana. We think it is vital that our customer base is informed and included in the processes, research and development of our product.
Gone are the days where businesses are not held accountable for their decisions, values and impact, and rightly so. The world is changing, and business methods must change alongside that. When you are buying from a business, you are investing your money, and we want to make sure you are investing wisely. The product we make and sell we are incredibly proud of, and that is something that we want to continue to feel.
In the past two years, Lahana has made a conscious change to improve upon our carbon footprint and reduce our environmental impact. These changes have been prompted from the simple, but profound question:
How can we do better?
We started this journey by firstly making HQ plastic-free and vegetarian/vegan, provided our team with reusable coffee, smoothie cups, alongside investing back into both local and international communities and charities.
We have supported charities such as Thryft GC, Pay a Sack Forward, The Globals Women's Project, Wires, RFS, Treading Lightly Inc., The Bail Project, Black Vision Collective, Black Rainbow Aus and more.
However, this is just the start of our journey that we hope you will join us on, with 2020 being our year to set and achieve goals towards greater transparency and sustainability. The year to go deeper and explore, how we can do better?
Our 2020 Goals include:
- Work alongside our manufacturer to encourage sustainable practises throughout our supply chain
- Introduce Recycled fabric into minimal and luxe range
- Introducing Bio-degradable inner packaging and compostable outer bags
Sustainability is a word or topic that gets thrown around quite often in business these days. It's an important topic, but also complex in defining and achieving. Transparency and honesty are important to us because of that reason. While we always endeavour to explore and improve our methods and practises, there is always going to be something that we can improve. We are meeting that challenge head-on, taking active steps towards sustainability.
We will always endeavour to reduce our overall carbon footprint. Our team is excited to research, trial, implement and share this process with you.
