Little Regal Apparel is committed to social responsibility and reducing its environmental impact. Rather than shipping in plastics, boxes and other materials that so often end up in the landfill, we have sourced environmentally sustainable packaging and are proud to say that our items are packaged in 100% compostable mailers.
Made from corn-based biopolymers, these mailers are certified for both residential and commercial compost. You can dispose of the mailers directly in your green bin or composter, and they will completely break down within 6 months. The use of plant materials in the manufacturing of these mailers makes up less than 0.05% of the annual global corn crop, and they are certified by TUV Austria, BPI and Dincerto to meet international compost standards, and leave no harmful residues after fully degrading.
We use tissue paper to wrap items inside our mailers, which are completely acid-free, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the ink is soy-based.
Little Regal Apparel is also a member of the Eco Packaging Alliance, certifying our packaging as environmentally sustainable, while planting trees in areas of need, to help offset the environmental impact.
We work with designers who share our core values, particularly when it comes to the quality and manufacturing process of the clothes we carry. Many of our designers use 100% organic cotton, grown without the use of harmful pesticides and fertilizers. Organic cotton uses less water while maintaining healthy soils. One of these is Peruvian Pima cotton, which not only feels soft and silky, but it allows a little one’s skin to breathe naturally, which helps regulate body temperature.
Another type of organic cotton involves a certified fair-trade cotton project called Chetna Organic. Its mission is to ensure farming is more sustainable, as well as profitable, for small farmers and manufacturers, giving them equity stake, a living wage, and healthcare and education benefits, all while ensuring farms and factories are free from chemicals, GMOs and child labour.
