Sustainable and responsible business practices are very important to Van Asch and as part of that commitment, we are launching our Organic ranges this year (2018). We will be phasing out all our textiles and replacing them with 100% organic cotton instead. We are also limiting our production to within the EU, so that we can cut down on emissions from transporting goods and be to be certain that the factories we work with have the highest standards for their workers.
All cardboard, paper and plastic that comes into our studio gets recycled.
We use recycled and FSC certified packaging materials from climate neutral companies where possible and we keep our own packaging and printing to a minimum.
Also from 2018 we have partnered with DHL GOGREEN for all our European deliveries outside Sweden. GOGREEN is a climate neutral service. DHL do not only offset carbon but other greenhouse gases like methane or nitrous oxid as well. Based on the new product standard “Greenhouse Gas Product Lifecycle Accounting and Reporting” from the well-known Greenhouse Gas Protocol they also include upstream emissions from the production of fuels and energy. Thus DHL increase the environmental benefit of all their climate neutral GOGREEN services. That means you don't need to worry about the environmental impact of delivering your order, it's carbon neutral.
