We are super passionate about sustainability and are working hard to make our small business as low impact as we can.
The big question, what is sustainability?
First and foremost, sustainability is made up of three interconnected pillars: economic, social and environmental.
At The Dust Bros, we believe that sustainability means that people and the planet work together at equilibrium.
All our packaging is eco-friendly & 100% recyclable so we can give you an unboxing experience that isn’t tarnished by excessive amounts of non-recyclable plastic.
Recycled packaging is made from previously used plastic products, including single-use bags, bottles and other common plastic items. The plastic is processed at a recycling facility and put back into circulation, thus doubling its lifespan.
Recycling reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators - it conserves natural resources and prevents pollution by reducing the need to collect new raw materials. Basically, instead of making something new - we’re taking something already in circulation to give it a second life!
While operating and maintaining recycling plants can often be a bit more costly, you can support by choosing products made from recycled materials. When you're done with these products, make sure you recycle them in their appropriate categories e.g. plastics, aluminium, glass, paper etc. so it goes to the right plant and doesn't end up in the landfill.
