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 & videos of their purchases across social media.
Delivering savings & 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.
