What We Do To Become More Sustainable
“Sustainability focuses on meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.”
The mass-production industry and technological advances have done great harm to the environment, some of which is irreversible.
While these may be more convenient for us right now, we’re not leaving much for future generations.
s a sustainable brand, Samarali strives to be part of the change, relying solely on organic materials and environmentally friendly production practices.
And this is just a smidge of what we do to help protect the world that we live in. That said, what does sustainability mean for us at Samarali?
At Samarali, we are using sustainable production and always looking for ways to lower CO2 emissions during the entire process, including the point of delivery.
That said, we’re always on the lookout for producers near us, ensuring we reach our goal.
Additionally, with every company that we work with, we always ask for certifications and even do background checks to see whether workers are treated ethically.
Most companies that produce yoga equipment are constantly using materials that are harmful to the environment since they are much cheaper and more available.
While this is convenient and profitable for them, they’re doing a great deal of damage to the environment.
As we are striving to be more sustainable every step of the way, Samarali vows to do things differently.
– Products from Organic cotton
All of our fabric-made equipment is made from sustainable materials, specifically organic-grown and GOTS-certified cotton.
Moreover, all of the materials that enter our production centers go through extensive checks to ensure that they comply with our sustainability measures.
For instance, we fill the bolsters and meditation cushions in-house with ecological buckwheat, which is sourced from Poland.
– Products from Cork
On the other hand, all our cork-made products, like the blocks, massage accessories, and cork yoga mats, are biodegradable, meaning they should be recycled after their usage has worn off.
Speaking of cork, not only is it better for the environment, but it’s also beneficial for your overall health!
So, by choosing any of our sustainable yoga products, know that you are one step closer to a healthier (and happier!) you!
Furthermore, one of the reasons why mass production has made its mark on the planet is due to the usage of cheap materials, resulting in products that quickly wear out.
Consequently, said products are then disposed of unethically, causing even more damage.
Since we use eco-friendly materials, they are much more durable and high-quality, meaning that you’ll use them for quite a long time.
Just to be on the safe side though, we’ve also included instructions on how you can recycle them responsibly.
In addition to using sustainable materials, we are proud to say that our own packaging is plastic-free!
Your orders are wrapped in paper-based packaging, both renewable and easily recyclable.
Storage of products
When it comes to storage, our yoga products are stored in nearby fulfillment center powered by solar panels to lower the CO2 emissions that come with delivery and transport.
As we previously mentioned, we ensure that also each of our partners takes sustainability seriously.
Of course, you know that businesses like ours have a ton of paperwork. However, most of our documentation is stored digitally.
While it’s challenging to digitalize all the paperwork, we aim for our work to be completely paper-free in the future!
In addition to sustainability, Samarali also strives for diversity and fully supports female-owned businesses.
That said, before the war and even now, we have been collaborating with Ukrainian woman-led businesses.
To make sure that everybody tags along the sustainability train, we have created and submitted Waste Prevention And Eco-Design Approaches to the French government.
By doing so, we are paying contributions to French companies that are responsible for recycling textiles and packaging once they reach their end of life.
Now, you may be wondering why we are taking such steps towards sustainability and why we should be the sustainable brand you go for.
Simply put, we’re doing it all for you and the generations that will follow.
From the moment the materials enter our production centers, we double-check them to see whether they comply with our measures and EU regulations as well.
Once the products are finished, we wrap them up nicely in eco-friendly materials and pack them up in recycled cardboard.
We feel that progress is always to be made, so we assure you that we will do everything to keep up with the newest sustainable production and technology practices.
However, if you have any suggestions on how we can improve, feel free to leave us your comments.
We’re all in this together, so let’s unite to bring our children a better world! After all, it will always belong to them!
We want to thank you wholeheartedly for choosing to support our sustainable brand!
We promise to always produce high-quality products that do not harm the environment, bringing us one step closer to our mission!
