Sustainability

As a brand that cares deeply for kindness and consideration, we pledge here to continuously better ourselves through our environmentally conscious actions.

We are daunted not by the magnitude of what is possible. Instead, our approach is one of making sure yet steady steps towards being far kinder to the planet, knowing that every progression is a sign of positive change.

On this page, we share with you our pledge for 2021. A small team we may be, but we believe this next step is one that shall result in a significant improvement to our carbon emissions and levels of waste.

Packaging must be our first focus. We made huge inroads in research towards the end of 2020, and now it’s a case of putting what we’ve found into action. This involves a deep review of how all of our items are currently dispatched to your homes so that we are able to refine the steps and use only packaging that is necessary to protect your chosen pieces – for the last thing we wish is for them to arrive in pieces. 

Not only a question of volume, but our packaging review encompasses also materials and provenance. We shall lead an audit to ensure our decision has considered the source, questioning which has the most ethical practices and which has the lowest carbon footprint so that we are choosing most wisely.

We pledge too to dedicate much time and much resource to finding in what ways we can make the most meaningful sustainable improvements to life at Rowen & Wren. As we write this, we’re working hard to map out a sustainability programme for 2021 that covers areas big and small. We’ll be sure to share more details very soon, but for now, know that our intentions are to be ever-more conscious of both people and planet.
