We love our planet, that’s why we thought we’d share some of the things we’re doing (with your help) to look after it and minimise our impact on the environment.
PILLOW SLIPS ARE BIODEGRADABLE Biodegradable means our pillow cases breaks down over time and won't sit in our landfills taking up space - BUT biodegradable materials need a specific environment to actually be able to biodegrade. This means it's super important that you dispose of all biodegradable materials (including our pillow slips) in the right way.
You should check your council’s rubbish rules, each local council specifies the best place for biodegradable waste to go to ensure it can degrade properly without filling up space in a landfill.
WE PLANT TREES Yep, we plant trees for you and for us - for everyone really. We have partnered with our epic friends over at Carbon Neutral, and we plant a tree every time we sell a 3 month or 6 month pack of Kovrd Pillow Slips.
Botanicals play a major role in our products, we love working with natural elements like essentials oils and understand how important it is to protect the bio-diversity of our Australian lands. By planting trees we not only restore rich plant life back to areas in need, we restore habitats for our wildlife, and we help to sequester carbon, plus there's many more amazing benefits to investing back into our environment. Carbon Neutral works on large scale revegetation, basically they turn sad, bare lands into lush fields of native Australian plant life.
OUR PILLOW SLIPS ARE REUSABLE Re-use your kovrd pillow slips as handy little helpers around the home with some of these great ideas:
BIN LINERS > As our slips are biodegradable they are perfect to be your new bin liners that smell wonderful and you know will break down. Make sure you check that your local council wants biodegradable plastics in the general waste stream.
SHOE BAGS > Soft cases to protect your shoes when you travel.
