Our Commitment to Sustainability
NAMILIA is committed to reorienting our production and distribution practices to be as sustainable as possible. Some of the steps we’ve taken recently to lessen our carbon footprint:
- We’ve switched our vegan leather to a water-based polyurethane, a choice that’s not only better for the environment but also for the people producing the fabrics.
- We’ve begun working with a shipping warehouse in the United States to reduce travel distances for our American customers ordering from our webshop.
- Our shipping materials are all zero waste, like biodegradable poly bags and shipping bags made of 100% recycled paper.
- All our domestic shipments are climate neutral, meaning we pay to offset the carbon dioxide produced in shipping each order.
Compostable Packaging inspired by Nature
An estimated 180 billion polybags are used every year for fashion, apparel, and accessories. At Namilia we offer a waste-free solution to pack our products.
We use compostable polybags and mailers and provide a replacement for single-use plastic packaging in the fashion and apparel industry. NAMILIA’s home compostable packaging is made from fully biodegradable materials that will completely disintegrate in home compost within 180 days
Namilia abides by standards of compostability EN 13432 and TÜV OK Compost Home. Our products are certified by TÜV Austria, Din Certco, BPI and ABA for industrial composting, or certified as home compostable by TÜV Austria and ABA.
When you’re finished with your home compostable NAMILIA packaging, place it in your home composter with other organic waste.
If you’re new to home composting:
Composting is one of the world’s most natural recycling systems. It describes a process where living micro-organisms break down organic matter (fruit, vegetables, branches, leaves, compostable packaging, etc.) into compost, or rich soil.
The temperature and humidity of your home compost will vary. Standard home compost temperatures tend to hover at 25 ± 5 ᵒC, with a target humidity of around 50%. Under normal composting conditions, your packaging will disintegrate within 6 months, and fully degrade within a year.
