Sustainability doesn’t stop with the product. It is a core part of everything we do, and that includes the selection of our packaging materials and the transport we choose.
lowest possible footprint
Our guiding principle is to achieve the lowest environmental impact as possible with our transport and packaging choices while at the same time offering you a beautiful experience when receiving your Tripulse clothes.
What makes our transport sustainable?
Over-compensation of CO2 emissions
Transport has a big impact on our environment due to the CO2 emissions that are attached to it.
Our goal is to reduce the environmental impact of transporting our products as much as possible, while at the same time giving you a great delivery experience.
All shipping we do is over-climate-compensated.
This we achieve through the sustainability programs offered by our transport partners.
On top of these, our Climate Neutral Certification already covers CO2 emissions caused by shipping, meaning that we over-climate-compensate our transports.
Climate programs by our partners
Here a breakdown of the climate-compensation programs we use through our transport partners:
- DHL GoGreen: Before we'll send your package with DHL Express GoGreen, DHL calculates the emissions the transport causes and then compensates for this through subsidies to external parties' climate protection projects. This way, the transport's emissions are neutralized. For instance, if your shipment emits 20 kg of CO2 emissions, DHL will compensate with at least the same amount by purchasing emission reductions in external projects. The calculation and compensation of these emissions is checked annually by Société Générale de Surveillance S.A (SGS), an independent auditor.
- PostNord Klimatkompensation: We use this service when sending our packages within Sweden. PostNord is investing the full compensation in renewable energy production in developing countries. Fossil energy production is being replaced by renewables. This is done with the help of UN certified CDM (Clean Development Mechanism) projects via the company 2050.
Minimize return rates
Our goal is to minimize returns which heavily contribute to the environmental problems caused by transport.
Did you know that returned items oftentimes can’t be resold any more and end up as waste? That is something we strongly intend to avoid.
We do this by giving you a clear description and images of our products and a good sizing guide.
We also encourage you to contact us should there be any questions related to our products before you make the purchase.
What makes our packaging sustainable?
Recyclable & non-plastic
We want to avoid any virgin plastics in our packaging, and use materials that are recyclable and as much as possible made from recycled materials or are biodegradable.
In short, we want to avoid using new virgin resources for our packaging as much as possible, and instead use what has already existed before. And at the end of their life, they are easily recyclable.
We choose packaging that is reusable so you can use it for future shipments or returns.
No over-use of material
We believe less is more.
We aim to strike the right balance of giving you a beautiful experience when receiving our products and at the same not overloading your package with too many unnecessary extras and minimizing waste.
