Our Journey Toward Sustainable Business Practices at The Blackmarket Lingerie.

As we celebrate Earth Day this year, I find myself reflecting on the journey The Blackmarket Lingerie, has taken towards embracing sustainability. From renewable solar energy to innovative packaging solutions, let me share how we are integrating eco-conscious practices into every aspect of our business model.
  1. Harnessing Renewable Solar Energy: We’ve made a conscious decision to reduce our carbon footprint by investing in renewable energy sources. Through the installation of solar panels, we've been able to significantly decrease our reliance on non-renewable energy, contributing to a cleaner environment.
  2. Efficient Eco-Friendly Delivery :In our commitment to minimizing carbon emissions, we've adopted the use of electric bikes to transport orders from our warehouse to our local Australia Post drop off We have also deliberately chosen to use Australia Post as our delivery partner due to their commitment to carbon neutral deliveries.
  3. Biodegradable Packaging and Minimalism: Our dedication to sustainability is evident in our packaging choices. Individual items are wrapped in tissue paper from recycled sources and coloured using acid free dyes. Boxes and swing tags are also made from recycled resources. Our biodegradable stickers, post labels and ecomailer bags are from Australian Owned Heaps Good made from a combination of cornstarch, PLA (vegetable-based plastic material) and PBAT (composting co-polymer). Compostable mailers break down within 180 days in home compost, and 90 days in commercial compost. Additionally, we advocate for minimalism, opting for streamlined packaging designs to minimize waste. This may mean we may not always be the prettiest of packaging – but you can be assured it’s costing you and the environment much less!
  4. Recycling and Reusing: Recycling and reusing are core principles at The Blackmarket Lingerie. We actively recycle or repurpose stock packaging materials to minimize waste generation. Moreover, we embrace second-hand furnishings within our workspace, promoting sustainability both internally and externally.
  5. Fabric Recycling and Waste Reduction: We're committed to minimizing fabric waste by recycling and repurposing materials. Faulty items are carefully salvaged, and usable fabrics are recycled or repurposed for new products, contributing to a circular economy and reducing landfill waste.
  6. Remote Work Culture: Embracing a remote work culture has been instrumental in reducing our environmental impact. By enabling our employees to work from home, we contribute to a decrease in carbon emissions associated with commuting while promoting a healthier work-life balance.

As we mark Earth Day, I'm proud of the strides we've made towards sustainability at The Blackmarket Lingerie. I hope our journey inspires others to join us in creating a greener, more sustainable future for generations to come.
