A step towards a sustainable future

Plastic Free July® is a global movement that has gained immense momentum in recent years, and for all the right reasons. The initiative encourages individuals, communities, and businesses to reduce their plastic consumption and make a positive impact on the environment.
From single-use plastic bags and straws to disposable cutlery and packaging, our reliance on plastic has reached alarming levels. This movement encourages us to re-evaluate our consumption patterns and adopt more eco-friendly alternatives.We can start by saying no to single-use plastic items, opting for reusable alternatives instead. Bringing our own shopping bags, water bottles, and coffee cups not only reduces plastic waste but also inspires others to follow suit.
Furthermore, this initiative opens a dialogue about the importance of recycling and waste management. It encourages us to seek out local recycling programs and support businesses that prioritise sustainable practices. By raising awareness and fostering conversations, we can encourage systemic changes that address the plastic crisis at its root.

How are we participating?

At Nomads, we send all online orders out to our customers in Nomads-branded, brown paper packages, made from FSC sustainable sources. Our individual garment packaging is made from non-GMO cornstarch which is fully compostable and can be safely disposed of in your food waste or regular household bin.
Exterior packaging is cardboard and either reused or recycled. Our swing tags and biannual catalogues are all printed on uncoated FSC-certified materials using vegetable-based inks, which means they’ll biodegrade without leaching harmful substances into the environment.
In addition to this, over the course of July the Nomads Team will be educating ourselves further on plastic pollution and what we can do to help. Keep your eyes peeled on our social media for updates about how we’re getting on.
And don’t forget to let us know how you’re joining in!
