LET’S TALK ABOUT PACKAGING
By Steven Potter, 3 April 2021
So, let us (and by ‘us’, we mean our Senior Creative, Jess), show you exactly what we’ve changed and what we’re working towards. Keep scrolling for a two-part special on our packaging, the plastic we use and what we’re changing.
'Why are we still using plastic packaging?' is a question we hear a lot. That's why part two of our packaging story is all about just that. Just for ref though, you can find the deets here too.
- Our plastic mailer bags have a lower carbon footprint than paper bags (almost four times lower) and as carbon is measured by weight, that's the same as 10 giant sequoia trees!
- The bags are 100% recyclable and you can recycle them at any supermarket carrier bag collection point.
- We can do that for you, though, just send any old packaging back with your returns and we'll recycle it for you!
- Your old packaging will then go on to become new packaging – that's circularity in action, peeps.
Our sustainability experts are always researching and developing more and more ways to make ASOS and our processes more sustainable so, watch this space!
