Employing sustainable practises does not stop with the fabrics we choose.
We follow our Common Good ethos all the way through to the delivery of your items and the packaging they arrive in.
These are some of the small steps that we are making towards a better future, let’s walk together.
Working with NoIssue Co ensures all TCGCo items come wrapped in custom FSC Certified Tissue paper and are sent out to you in a reusable and compostable bag. We are pleased to be a part of the Eco Packaging Alliance.
Shipping and Transport
At TCGCo we strive to reduce our Carbon Emissions by:
• Selecting less carbon intensive modes of transport (Fact: Sea transport uses 26 times less carbon than Air Freight.)
• Domestically we use Sendle, a certified BCorp who operate Australia's first 100% Carbon neutral delivery service.
• Where we can not avoid Air Transport, we adopt environmental policies, investing in Carbon Offsetting programs such as our friends at One Tree Planted.
"Everytime you make a purchasing decision, you are casting a vote for the kind of world you want to live in."
- Anna Lappe
That is why at TCGCo we use the following services for ‘The Common Good’...
Living off the grid (by the coast and in a treehouse) is the pipeline dream... in the interim we use Powershop - Australia’s greenest power company who offset all carbon emissions required to power the TCGCo Home/Office.
We bank with Bank Australia who put people before profit and ensure that money is never loaned to industries (e.g coal, nuclear weapons, gambling, tobacco, live animal export) that do harm.
What is better than high speed internet? An internet provider that gives a shit, that is why we use START Broadband - a BCorp who fund home internet connection for disadvantaged Aussie families. Not only that, the owner lives in our neighbourhood so we know we're contributing to our local community and keeping the funds within our economy.
Speaking of shit....
When we do have a spare a minute to wipe our bums we do so with Who Gives a Crap - another local BCorp who uses recycled paper and bamboo fibres to make Toilet Paper. These legends donate 50% of profits to help build toilets for the 2.3 billion people (almost 40% of population) who currently live without them.
And while we're in the bathroom it would remiss of us not to mention the team over at Big Little Brush who clean our teeth whilst directing 100% of their profits towards funding primary health programs in remote Indigenous communities throughout Australia.
