Here, you will find all the information about our sustainability objectives and how we are working towards a brighter future for people and planet Earth.
Products and Packaging
We are in the process of introducing more sustainable materials and plastic-free alternatives into our products and packaging. Each staff member has sustainability training to help improve our carbon footprint as a brand and as individuals.
We have swapped all plastic jewellery packaging to ECOPLAS, a cassava-based biodegradable material. We use recycled or biodegradable packaging for our orders.
We are aiming to have a full description on each product page of the materials used by the start of 2024. This information will include where all materials are sourced, to enable our customers to make more informed buying decisions.
We recycle our cardboard boxes wherever we can to reduce waste. This might mean your Pineapple Island parcels arrive in a box with a few odd labels or markings - but we can assure you that the products inside will be of our usual high standard.
Reducing our carbon footprint
Pineapple Island has a 'cycle or walk to work' scheme, to encourage staff to reduce their carbon footprint by eliminating their car/public transport commute.
We recycle cardboard, wood and plastic waste from our Head Office and Warehouse. We are always finding ways to improve our waste management.
We have now installed solar panels at our head office & warehouse.
Reducing single-use plastic
We encourage our staff to reduce their use of single-use plastic on breaks by providing kitchen utensils and crockery to use throughout the day.
We strive to maintain trustful relationships with our makers in Bali, and we have external audits to ensure that Ethical Trading standards are met. All employment is freely chosen and wages meet the national legal standard alongside fair working hours.
