Packaging for a B Corp fashion marketplace that’s better for their business and the planet
Thrift+ is a pre-loved fashion marketplace fighting waste by making secondhand seamless
How can we be more sustainable without increasing costs?
Thrift+ wanted to introduce more sustainable packaging solutions across their portfolio of mailer bags.
Plastic-free packaging made in the UK
Sourceful helped Thrift+ to reduce the amount of plastic from their packaging through two key solutions:
- Paper Mailers: FSC Certified, 100% kerbside recyclable and made in the UK
- 98% recycled LDPE mailer bags, recyclable at local collection points
Better for business and the planet: Sourceful optimised packaging sizes, boosting efficiency by making sure Thrift+ could ship anything from small to large bags of clothes.
The new paper & 98% LDPE mailer bags feature high-impact branding and messaging, building brand loyalty and encouraging customers to share images and videos of their purchases across social media.
Delivering savings and efficiency through improved packaging supply chain
The packaging project helped Thrift+ reduce packaging costs -11% (paper mailers vs previous plastic solution), showing that brands can embrace more sustainable solutions while avoiding increased costs.
Thrift+ has also boosted supply chain efficiency with the help of Sourceful’s Auto-Stock platform, which allows them to manage their packaging in one simple online portal and reorder in a few clicks.
