GLYNIT is committed to contribute to a more sustainable environment. In order to manage our efforts and track our progress we have decided to focus on three main areas of influence:
At GLYNIT we strive to be open and transparent in regards to our commitment to sustainability and social responsibility. The heart of our business is the product we create. How and where our product is made matters to us. As a company with manufacturing activities, we know that we have a responsibility. We’re focused on becoming the most responsible version of ourselves and this started with the commitment to become a vegan brand. GLYNIT carefully select vegan, non-leather, eco-friendly materials to create collections. We want to challenge both its design and production development to become greener. We are seeking to integrate new processes into each collection to mitigate our impact on the environment season after season. The next step in contributing to a positive change is working with recycled materials. Soon we want to introduce a new collection of bags made from a new material; rPET. Better known as Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate.
As a start-up brand, it is one of our duties to take care of the planet. GLYNIT tries to limit its footprint as much as possible. We are aware of the major impact that the shipping industry has on our planet. Considering that fact, we strive to choose environmental-friendly shipping options. We attempt to ship as much as possible in bulk - mostly by sea or train rather than airfreight. These are the most environmentally friendly modes of shipping and that reduce polluting emissions. GLYNIT choses minimal packaging when shipping and delivering our Molly bag. We have eliminated polybags to minimize waste. We think before we print, but when we really have to, we only use recycled paper. In the final step of the production cycle, each product is packed in left-over boxes from cardboard packaging companies. GLYNIT understands, that as a commercial business, we will never be perfect. We are nevertheless committed to mitigating the adverse effects on our planet as much as possible.
GLYNIT believes that we have many, wide-spanning obligations. It is not only the environment, that we must care for, but also the people who create our products from scratch. We believe that it is our job to amplify a healthy and socially responsible conduct. We want to ensure safe, healthy, and fair working conditions based on the suppliers we chose. GLYNIT does not own any factories. However, we choose our suppliers and production countries carefully. We bear in mind to only work with suppliers who are SA8000 certified. This means that they must provide decent working conditions for everyone who is involved in the production process. GLYNIT made a promise to itself and their customers that our products are always crafted in a responsible, human manner.
