SUSTAINABILITY AT MY STORE
The origins and foundation of our business was built on a mission of helping people feel and look their best while providing jobs for people all over the world.
At MY STORE, we are on a journey to become a more sustainable business, by having both a positive social and environmental impact. We are continually developing and refining our approach to reflect our commitment to environmental, ethical and social issues, combined with an ongoing approach to circularity plus giving back to the community and the planet as a whole.
Our path includes working with ethical wholesalers and manufacturers who manage and ensure that their supply chain is ethical, and are committed to a sustainable future. We have an expectation that all our suppliers adhere to a strict code of conduct in relation to their terms of governance and ethics. This includes, but is not limited to adhering to all relevant local and national laws.
Through our supply chain, we have developed and maintained strong working relationships with our suppliers. We care deeply about the people in our community and make it a priority to support them.
We source our clothing from a variety of local and international suppliers from across Australia, Asia, America, Europe and the UK. In conjunction with our suppliers we are working on ways to reduce our carbon footprint and create a more sustainable business that is constantly evolving.
As we committed to working toward a more sustainable future, the concept of circularity requires us to be smarter about how our products and packaging are produced for their next phase & use. We select clothing that is appropriate for multi-year wear so that the customer can enjoy and utilise each item for the long term. In addition, we partner with the charitable organisation Dress For Success, to provide excess clothing to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing professional attire to help them thrive.
- We are always looking at packing your orders the most effective, beautiful but sustainable way possible! We recycle gift papers and will always have an ethical way of wrapping and packing!
- We are in the process of eliminating paper receipts as standard practice and we are encouraging our My Store Tribe to embrace this decision.
Recycled Cardboard Boxes
- We use recycled cardboard boxes for product storage and these are re-used on an ongoing basis.
