Online orders are a blessing - we certainly think so, anyway. You have the convenience of buying your favourite pieces and must-have items from the comfort of your couch. But online stores can be both a blessing and a (waste)curse, because with orders and deliveries come the inevitable waste from packaging.
Billions of packages are sent every year and alongside that comes waste from plastic bags and packaging. And, like you (I'm sure), we have been affected by articles, reports and Attenborough-type documentaries on the impact of plastic waste on our oceans and wildlife.
"...by the year 2025, there will be 1 tonne (a metric ton) of plastic for every 3 tonnes of fish in the ocean" (source)
So, at Maxted, we have made an important step we're extremely proud of to keep our packaging as sustainable as possible so our deliveries don't harm the environment and our customers can rest assured that they're ordering from a fashion brand that cares about the future of our oceans and our planet.
Maxted sends all of its deliveries in packaging from The Better Packaging Company from 100% biodegradable and compostable material. The packaging is gone in 90 days* not 900 years. You can even throw them in with your food waste and compost as they completely biodegrade!
