LEONELLE X ONE TREE PLANTED
We have decided to partner with One Tree Planted in order to give back to our planet. Through our partnership with One Tree Planted a tree will be planted for each order on our website. It's that simple!
Not only are you purchasing beautiful, sustainable swimwear - You guys are helping to make this planet a better place with every order. Leonelle will donate $1 USD ($1.60 AUD) from every order to One Tree Planted, which is a non profit organisation that partners with reforestation organisations in 5 regions around the world: North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia and Australia.
Working with One Tree Planted allows us to offset carbon emissions from shipping your orders all over the globe.
Why plant trees?
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
Aside from planting trees, we are also committed to reducing our impact on the planet in other ways. You may notice your order came in a parcel bag that is 100% compostable! That's right, these bags are home compostable. We use mailers by Hero Packaging.
WHAT EXACTLY ARE THEY MADE FROM?
HEROPACKS are made from home-compostable materials, mainly corn starch and PBAT (a compostable ingredient which bonds the renewable ingredients together).
HOW DO WE COMPOST THEM?
To compost them at home, it’s best to remove any labels, cut them up and place in your compost bin as “brown” materials. These will completely break down within 90-120 days in a home-compostable environment - sometimes even sooner!
These can also be sent to composting facilities to be properly broken down and composted. If you are in Australia, please CLICK HERE to find a composter near you. You can also ask your local council if they can provide a composting green bin for you. Another great option is to visit https://sharewaste.com/ to find a local home-composting enthusiast near you!
