Our Enviro HangersApril 27th 2021
Here at Best&Less, we’re constantly looking for new ways to make sure we're doing everything we can to reduce our impact on the environment. We’re proud to introduce to you one of our newest initiatives, the enviro hanger. Made from recycled cardboard, these new clothing hangers are now being used across our Baby Berry organics range, and are already being rolled out into our stores across the country. Take a look at the new hangers, and keep a lookout for them in store! Read on for a little more information regarding how the enviro hangers are helping our planet.
Gold Medal at the Non-Toxic Awards 2020
The Australian Non-Toxic Awards strive to recognise and celebrate brands and products that are socially and environmentally responsible. Their core values, and judging criteria for awards, revolve around the safety, ethics, sustainability and responsibility of brands and their products, so when something has the Non-Toxic Awards approval, you can rest easy knowing that you’re purchasing a safe, high quality product. The enviro hangers won the gold award for the Home - Zero Waste category in 2020. This means that the hangers were scored by a panel of experts, named finalists, and achieved the top score in their category.
8 Million Tons of Plastic Enter the Ocean Every Year
It can sometimes be astonishing to realise how much plastic we use each and every day. It is estimated that 5 grams of microplastics are consumed per person, per week! Plastic is awful for our environment, specifically the ocean, where unfortunately over 8 million tons of plastic end up each and every year - this includes regular plastic hangers. The enviro hanger is made from recycled cardboard, and can be recycled once again after its use in Best&Less stores. This is essential to reducing the amount of plastic we use, and the amount of plastic that ends up in our seas, where it will affect 800 species of marine life world wide.
Best&Less is constantly working to ensure we’re taking care of our environment, making it easier for our customers to make socially responsible purchases. When you see the new enviro hangers in store, be sure to let us know what you think!
