Sustainable Packaging: Put Your Best Legs Forward

Sustainable Packaging: Put Your Best Legs Forward

Not just a pretty box: That's a wrap!

When it comes to sportswear, comfort is always of top priority, as well as good quality. Whether you’re running trails or working on your headstands on the yoga mat, any aspiring outdoorsy women deserve high-quality sportswear that helps put their best legs forward. And as we continue building a more circular future for the planet, another aspect that’s of equal importance is sustainability! Eco-consciousness and circularity have been on the rise in all areas of fashion, and there’s no reason that our packaging should be left out of the movement.

Supply Chain Transparency

We're on a slow-fashion mission to make a change in our industry, particularly in promoting transparency on the manufacturing process that goes behind each piece of activewear sewn. As a final touch, we choose to pack our pieces in packaging that’s just as circular and high-quality as our production, with the help of a local lavender grower, recycled box manufacturer and noissue Mailers, Stickers!

We offer two eco-friendly packaging options for you to choose from at checkout; a recyclable gift-box with helpful care information printed inside, great for new customers, or a plant-derived compostable mailer.

Besides using recycled plastic bottles for our fabric, we regularly partner with other sustainably-minded companies to continue reducing our carbon footprint. We opt to use local delivery services to consolidate those transfers from our factory 71km from HQ.


Environmental and Social Initiatives

It's essential that we minimize and offset our supply chain and shipping emissions as well, which is why use recycled polyester and support Greenstory's projects for renewable wind turbine energy, forest protection and solar panel cook stoves in developing communities. 

To go even further with our mission, Bewildher's also joined the Eco-Alliance community at noissue, where Nadine and team are able to contribute to climate action initiatives with every order that benefit areas of need. By joining the Eco-Alliance, Bewildher stands alongside other small brands that share the same focus on circularity, and are doing their part for the planet one step at a time.

Eco-friendly Packaging

To wrap it all up, we offer two eco-friendly packaging options for you to choose from at checkout; a recyclable gift-box with helpful care information printed inside, great for new customers, or a plant-derived compostable mailer. 

Our recyclable gift box has care information printed on the inside that you can follow for ALL activewear. Cut out the bottom and tack it up in your laundry room - inspirational art on the reverse for when you've got your T.L.C dialled in.

The tissue paper your leggings come beautifully wrapped in is also recyclable, as well as the brown outer kraft paper. To top it all off, we've even sourced recycled tape with which to secure your parcel on it's journey and even the white postage sticker is recyclable too! Phew.
