Our value of sustainability

Joyn's worker using her hands to help reduce the impact of manufacturing on her environment
We are here to let you know that being ethical and eco friendly does matter; it matters a lot! It is at our very core. Sustaining the planet, maintaining people's communities and operating sustainably in business are things we value.

How do these values impact our day to day operations here in Australia and with our producers?

Here are just a few examples:

🌴  The fashion and homeware items created from new raw materials are responsibly sourced and natural ( and not plastic) like soy wax, jute, coconut, bamboo, cotton and wool. 

♻️  We stock beautiful products made from repurposed and recycled materials like leather, fabric and metals. Our for Dignity brand uses recycled paper for all our printed materials, and even our branded round sticky labels are compostable! We are currently working on the package labelling with Better Packing Co to have compostable delivery labels too.

🤲🏼  Our producers use handcrafting techniques like hand spinning cotton, block printing with non-toxic dyes, hand stitching, hand made pottery, hand-poured candles, hand knotting and handwoven basket. Why is this more sustainable? It uses fewer energy resources and supports the craftsmanship that has sustained communities for generations.

👨‍👩‍👧‍👦  Our producers have liveable wages, work in fair and safe environments and have their communities supported through various community programs. The backbone of our business, the women, the families and the community come first.

These are just a few of our sustainable values and practices. It is an area we continue to develop as we learn and understand more. We are far from experts, but we are working on walking the talk.
