- IMPACT AND COMMITMENT -
RECYCLABLE PACKAGING COMMITMENT TO U.N SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS 3
Töastie is focused in our commitment to UN Sustainable Development Goal 3: ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages. We recognise the importance of getting children excited, involved and engaged with nature both for their mental health and wellbeing and also to nurture the desire to cherish and protect our natural world. As a result, we have launched ‘Tiny Corners’, an initiative promoting the idea that anyone of any age can look after a tiny corner of nature in their own home. Every order comes with a lollipop, and the biodegradable stick is filled with seeds for planting. Customers also have the opportunity to purchase a second lollipop to donate to children in underprivileged areas, to bring a 'Tiny Corner' of nature into their lives.
Töastie now use 100% FSC-certified packing and 100% recycled and 100% recyclable garment bags.
We also encourage customers to give their packaging a second life: our boxes are lined with a drawing for children to colour in. The drawing is also a guide to foraging, with plants for children to look out for on their adventures, encouraging them to care for the environment around them.
RESPONSIBLE SOURCING AND CONSCIOUS DESIGN
Töastie is striving towards increased traceability of all materials within our supply chain. We also ensure all of our suppliers sign our code of conduct, we never use any PVCs or VOCs and we have committed to using only recycled down in own collections from 2021.
When designing garments, at Töastie we take extra effort to make the majority of items all-season appropriate and make design adjustments such as longer sleeves and elasticated hoods and waists giving room for growth and minimising the chance of waste. We have also recently innovated the raincoat, launching a design that uses 100% recycled plastic bottles for its shell.
For Töastie, activating purpose means making community investment and giving back to wider society an essential part of their business. The brand is a member of the non-profit organisation, 1% for the Planet. Their membership means that they commit to giving 1% of our revenue to non-profit partners dedicated to environmental causes.
