At ästrid, we are committed to sustainability and strive to minimize our environmental impact in every aspect of our business.
One way we do this is by offering candles without pots, which reduces our material usage and allows for easier recycling. All our candles come in a variety of scents to choose from.
In addition to our candles without pots, we also reuse candle pots whenever possible. These candles are just as high-quality as our other products, but because we are able to reduce our material costs by reusing pots, we are able to offer them at a lower price point. We use eco-friendly packaging materials and make an effort to reduce waste in our workshop.
We are proud to donate 1% of every purchase plus from our own funds to organizations that support local communities and the environment. At the end of each year, we will share the specific organizations and amounts that we have donated, to ensure transparency in our giving.
We hope that by offering sustainable options and being mindful of our impact on the environment, we can do our part in creating a better future for all. Thank you for choosing ästrid and for supporting our sustainability efforts.
There are many factors to consider when determining which fabric is the most eco-friendly, as the sustainability of a fabric depends on how it is produced, used, and disposed of.
Some fabrics are more sustainable than others based on their raw materials and how they are produced, such as natural fibers like organic cotton, linen, and hemp, which are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. Other sustainable fabrics include recycled materials like recycled polyester, which reduces the demand for virgin resources and reduces waste.
It's also important to consider the durability and lifespan of a fabric, as well as how it is cared for and disposed of. Fabrics that are more durable and can be easily repaired or repurposed tend to have a lower environmental impact over their lifespan. Fabrics that can be recycled or composted at the end of their lifespan are also more sustainable.
Ultimately, the most eco-friendly fabric will depend on the specific context and the sustainability goals of the product or project. It may be helpful to consider the full lifecycle of a fabric, including its raw materials, production methods, use, care, and disposal, when evaluating its sustainability.
Pillow Inlets: We are always looking for ways to be more sustainable in our business practices. One way we do this is by creating our own pillow inserts, using high-quality materials that are eco-friendly and long-lasting.
Our pillow inserts are handmade with care, using soft, natural kapok filling and durable cotton fabric.
Kapok is a sustainable fiber that comes from the seed pods of the kapok tree and is known for its soft, lightweight, and hypoallergenic properties. It is also biodegradable and naturally resistant to pests and mold, making it a great alternative to synthetic fibers.
The soft, natural kapok filling is sourced from a farm in Ireland called Apple Oak that is committed to eco-conscious practices, ensuring that it is grown without the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers.
By creating our own pillow inserts, we are able to control the materials used and ensure that they align with our values of sustainability. We hope you'll enjoy the comfort and eco-friendliness of our self-made pillow inserts.
