SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES // HEIDI FRANK


Here at Heidi Frank we are constantly trying to adopt more sustainable practices and strive to bring you beautiful clothing with minimal environmental impact - Here's a few ways we are implementing this:

NO. 1 - SMALL RUNS 

HERE AT HEIDI FRANK WE ONLY PRODUCE SMALL RUNS TO KEEP WASTE TO A MINIMUM. THIS MEANS WE DON'T HAVE EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF DEAD STOCK + YOUR HF PIECE IS ONE OF ONLY A FEW.

NO. 2 - REPAIRING GARMENTS

HAVING OUR MANUFACTURING ONSITE IN MARLBOROUGH MEANS ON THE ODD OCCASION WHEN WE HAVE A FAULTY GARMENT INSTEAD OF REPLACING IT WE ARE ABLE TO HAVE IT REPAIRED WITHIN IN THE DAY. THIS IN TURN REDUCES WASTAGE. 

NO. 3 - NATURAL FIBRES

WHERE POSSIBLE WE WILL ALWAYS USE NATURAL FIBRES. NOT ONLY DO THEY FEEL BETTER ON THE SKIN, THEY ARE ALSO LESS DAMAGING TO OUR PLANET AT THE END OF A GARMENTS LIFE. 

NO. 4 - RECYCLING 

WE CHOOSE TO RE-USE ALL OUR CARDBOARD BOXES UNTIL THE END OF THEIR LIFE WHEN THEY, ALONG SIDE ALL OUR OTHER CARDBOARD, GO ON TO GET RECYCLED AT OUR LOCAL RECYCLING CENTRE.

NO. 5 - RE-USING 

TO KEEP OUR GARMENTS SAFE THEY ARE STORED IN BAGS WHICH WE RE-USE TIME AND TIME AGAIN. WHILE THIS IS NOT OUR IDEAL SITUATION WE ARE WORKING TOWARDS A MORE SUSTAINABLE STORAGE OPTION AT THE MOMENT.

NO. 6 - DONATING FABRIC 

ANOTHER WAY WE REDUCE WASTAGE IS BY DONATING OFF CUTS OF FABRICS TO LOCAL PRE-SCHOOLS FOR THE CHILDREN TO USE IN ART + CRAFT PROJECTS. 

NO. 7 - R3PACK POST BAGS 

WHEN SHIPPING OUT OUR PARCELS THEY ARE ENCLOSED IN HOME COMPOSTABLE COURIER BAGS TO REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF PLASTIC WE ARE SENDING OUT INTO THE WORLD. 

NO. 8 - TIMELESS PIECES

WE PRIDE OURSELVES ON CREATING TIMELESS, HIGH QUALITY GARMENTS THAT WILL LAST YOU FOR YEARS TO COME. WE WANT YOU TO WEAR YOUR HF, LOVE IT AND THEN WEAR IT AGAIN + AGAIN. 

We hope you enjoyed this insight into how we are doing our bit for planet earth.

With love,
The HF Team x
