At Primal we are built around the concept of saving the planet through fashion. This is a lofty goal that, we have found at every step costs us just a little bit more to achieve, but it is worth it.
Packaging is often the first place many businesses have difficulty, and the greatest opportunity, for their sustainability initiatives. Plastic is so cheap and easily sourced it is quite difficult giving up the addiction to plastic, but it is great to see so many major businesses trying now. At Primal we have eliminated plastic at every step, often to the consternation of our suppliers.
Our gift boxes
Our luxury boxes are made from Greyboard, which is 100% recycled material and 100% recyclable. We have eliminated plastic completely from our packaging and asked our suppliers to refrain from using plastic when packing our goods for shipping.
Our care cards
Our care cards are printed on 100% recycled paper using Eco-friendly inks.
Our silk masks
Silk is a 100% natural, renewable material with low environmental impact compared with other fibres. The silkworms feed on mulberry leaves, which do not warrant much application of pesticides or fertilizers to grow. And silk farming requires large groves of trees adding to the greening of our planet.
The current disposable mask situation is not getting much media attention, however COVID-19s impact has been disastrous in this regard, hundreds of millions of disposable masks are entering landfills on a daily basis, entering our water systems, the oceans and cluttering our streets.
