Our underwear is made to last, our packaging isn’t.
The last thing we wanted to do was create more waste with our packaging. That’s why we only use vegan friendly packaging that is made from natural or waste materials and with the ability to be fully circular. No plastic here.
Our Mailer Bags are made from a strong, sustainable substrate containing Calcium Carbonate (approx. 80%) sourced from waste products and approximately 20% of non-toxic resin. They are proudly Halogen free and produced in a carbon neutral, zero waste, solar generated factory in China.
All inks used on our bags are soy or water based inks, eco-friendly and non-toxic.
Whilst the bags themselves are waterproof, tear resistant, durable, tough and antibacterial, they are also photodegradable and will begin to break down in direct sunlight after 12-18 months. So if they don’t make it into the recycling stream and end up in nature, they revert back to calcium carbonate when left out in sunshine and natural conditions.
There is one part of our packaging made to last, and that’s our RENUE cotton bag. A gift from us to you to keep your NUE favourite underwear safe from harm.
They are ethically made in a SEDEX & SA8000 accredited factory in India and the entire process from material, dying and printing is GOTS approved, using pigment water based inks.
Our RENUE branded labels sewn onto the bags are made from recycled polyester.
Everything that touches our product is sustainable, and that includes our branded flyers that are printed on FSC recycled paper here in London, as well as our swing tags. Even the string is recycled polyester.
