At Luxya Yoga we take sustainability very seriously. We knew we wanted to create a brand that held true to our personal beliefs and made sustainable development a key part of the business. We believe as a brand and as a company we have a responsibility to care for and preserve the environment. To leave our planet in a better state for our children.
Our brand values start with responsibility. Responsibility for our environment, our impact to the environment and how we interact with our suppliers. We have gone to great lengths to find suppliers we feel share the same values.
Locally, we are proud to be a QAS-Certified Carbon Neutral business. We strive to be a carbon neutral organization and actively offset our carbon footprint through the purchases of carbon credits from our partner Clear Offset. We wanted to take this a step further and give our customers the choice to offset the last mile carbon. We partnered with CarbonClick, a New Zealand based carbon offsetting company helping to create a greener planet by partnering with ecommerce companies like us and enabling us to offer fully traceable carbon offsets to our customers.
Wanting to be eco-friendly is one thing but without measuring your impact or making plans to change even the best intentions fail to deliver results. We took the step to document our environmental impact and targets in our environmental policy.
We are very proud that our suppliers all maintain Business Social Compliance Initiative(BSCI) audits enabling us to trade with purpose by improving social performance in our supply chain.
Amfori have a strong code of conduct has 11 principles. These range from fair remuneration to no child labour, along with a step-by-step approach that enables companies to monitor, engage, get empowered and receive support to put sustainable trade at the heart of their business.
Our yoga mats are made with 100% natural tree rubber from sustainable sources. Our microfiber mats are made with rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate, or recycled PET) reclaimed from plastic bottles. Reducing landfill and reusing plastics.
We understand that sustainability is a continuous journey and not a destination. As we learn more about the impact of certain products or materials we endeavor to make positive changes in our supply chain and products. We value feedback and insight into how we can improve our footprint. Together we will make a difference.
