We are not there yet, but we are doing our best to offset our impact on the environment. We are continually trying to reduce our footprint so we can enjoy journeys near and far for years to come.
In March 2021 we partnered with Verdn, pledging to plant a tree or collect plastic from the ocean for every order received.
As a proud member of the European Outdoor Conservation Association we give our support towards their conservation projects. They are committed to giving something back to the environment and so is Gumbies. We are working together to make a difference.
We take our commitment to sustainability seriously. Where we can, we use as much recycled material as possible. We choose the right material to create the best possible product, which is lasting, fit for purpose and has the least environmental impact.
We are always looking at finding ways to reduce the impact of single use plastic. In our eyes, single use is no use!
All Gumbies products come in resealable/reusable bags which are also 100% recyclable.
We choose to use bags over boxes which reduces shipping volumes by 50%, meaning less impact on the environment.
Every order received is posted in a courier pack made from 100% recycled post consumer waste.
We are committed to operate under Fairtrade regulations and ensure all our factories are BSCI compliant. Each of our factories are continuously audited by the Amfori network.
We recycle 95% of all our waste. Not bad, but not quite good enough! Therefore, each day we aim to improve and are always looking to get closer to 100%.
Although we’re proud of what we’ve achieved, we are not done yet - our journey continues! We will continue to strive to do more to reduce our footprint.
