IVY & OAK - Inside Our Company

Our Practices

‘We believe in responsible business practices and strive to incorporate sustainability on all levels.’

    WE COMPENSATE CO2 EMISSIONS

    Running an e-commerce brand, we face challenges that need careful consideration. That’s why we decided to compensate not only the CO2 emissions produced through the shipping of our package deliveries and returns, but also the emissions produced through the operation and usage of our website.

      WE SUPPORT THE UN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

      To reach our offsetting goals, we’re partnering with the German NGO Klimakollekte. Through them we support a project that is dedicated to building domestic biogas units in South India, replacing the health – and environment threatening wood- and coal fired ovens with favourable biogas units, generating power through the fermentation of a natural, renewable and local resource: Cow dung. The project contributes to the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals through its social and environmental benefits.

        WE CHOOSE GREEN

        Operating responsibly as a company means that we’re always looking for the most sustainable option for everything we purchase and consume while running our business.

        From office supplies to cleaning products, we choose to use recycled, organic and biodegradable alternatives, preferably by brands that share our vision.

        Powered by green, renewable energy in our headquarters, we also work with recycled materials for our packaging, using recycled paper and plastic for all our shipping boxes, wrap bags and hang- and security tags.

          ‘We are not perfect yet but we have already achieved a lot and are working on getting more sustainable each day.’

            WE GIVE CLOTHES AN AFTER-SEASON LIFE

            Another fun way of incorporating sustainability into our business, is the repurposing of old garments. Take our bi-yearly sample sale for example, where we give our prototypes an after-season life, instead of sending them to landfills. We also donate clothes to local charities.
