REOPENING FOR INSTORE SHOPPING MONDAY 12th APRIL

Sustainability Policy

Environmental Policy

 

Karavan eco was established to sell products which promote a greener lifestyle.

Our high street shop has been open for 25 years, originally selling fairly traded goods and arts. We fully committed to our eco ethic in 2009 and have gone from strength to strength since then thanks to the wonderful reaction of our customers.

 

Our commitment is to a sustainable model and covers all aspects of our business including products, electricity supply and packaging to our recycling.

  • Packaging is reused in house and / or recycled – target zero waste to landfill

  • All service providers, i.e. electricity , phones – are chosen on the basis of their commitment to sustainability – annual review

  • Energy consumption – only low energy LED lighting and electric heating is used in our shop – target maintain low level of energy consumption - Electricity provided by renewable energy supplier - annual review

 

While the products we sell may not look immediately green each one has a story. They are chosen primarily with sustainability in mind. During the buying process we always consider the following aspects -

 

  • recycled materials – creating a market for all the waste we are producing and recycling

  • materials which are renewable – bamboo, wood, etc.

  • products which promote a green lifestyle- making the green choice easier

  • good design and quality manufacture – being green does not mean lack of taste or style. With more and more designers factoring a green ethos into their goods it's never been easier to look good while staying green.

  • Sourcing locally where possible and appropriate – UK produced goods make sense but are not always available. We source from around the world if the product is worthwhile. We adhere to fair trade principles
