Eco-design integrates the environmental impact of a product from the initial design concept, taking into consideration the whole lifecycle of the product.
Integrating environmental impact means producing goods with minimized environmental impact starting from the design process.
A product that is designed (or redesigned) with this approach fulfills the same qualities of use while providing benefits to the environment.
“Since July 2020, all of our in-store blue bags have been switched to 100% recycled plastic bottles (or PET bottles).
This effectively reduces 35% of our CO2 emissions as compared to our previous reusable blue bags.
In order to reduce our plastic usage, we started using mesh bags instead of the old plastic poly mailers to deliver your 2h Click & Collect orders. Today, we are finally using our very own customised blue bags for all your Click & Collect orders!Since then, we have fulfilled a total of 47,108 orders across 7 Click & Collect stores. That’s both 47,108 plastic poly mailers, and a total of $17,500 saved from the removal of plastic poly mailers in our Click & Collect operations.
We use 10,000 hangers alone on the daily.
In 2020, we partnered with hanger company, Mainetti, to give our hangers a second life with project Hang’Up. In extending the project to Southeast Asia, we were able to save:
659,700 pieces hangers (13 models)
= 8436.3 kg in C02 emission saving
That’s equivalent to 47 trees planted!
Throughout 2020, we brought about sustainable changes to our logistics operations. We invested in a LED lighting system in our logistic centre that was both electricity and cost-saving to reduce the ecological impact of our activity.
We also increased our cross border truck size to optimise transportation and reduce the frequency of trips needed from SEA to Singapore!Total CO2 saved = 2454.73 kg!
