Ethics & Sustainability

Here at Att Pynta we focus on making luxury styles affordable by carefully curating a range of homewares from ethical and sustainable designers to help people achieve the timeless look for less with a minimal impact to the planet. As our industry is heavily influenced by fast moving trends we can't claim to be a perfectly sustainable company. However we are fully responsible and proactive brand that is dedicated to lowering our impact on the environment, taking action with the following steps: 

Packaging:

  • Tape - 100% recyclable 
  • Cardboard - 100% recyclable
  • Foam Chips- 100% biodegradable and compostable. 
  • All orders come with a card with instructions on how to recycle the packaging. We please ask you recycle all our packaging where possible.

Products

  • We strive to not focus on seasonal designs with an aim to curate pieces that are timeless. With care, our styles can last a lifetime. Using natural materials such as rattan, wool and ceramic which are durable and healthier to have around the home. When buying for the home think about longevity of the item, buying less and buying better quality.
  • Many of the styles are made to order which avoids waste and holding onto stock that will then have to go into a sale. 

Our carbon footprint: 

  • We are aiming to become carbon neutral company by 2022. Currently we work with the charity Ecologi planting trees each month to offset the carbon emission the business makes. See our virtual forest and learn more here

The studio and showroom

  • Where possible we recycle any rubbish we can. We reuse packaging that is a suitable condition. 
  • Many of our staff walk or cycle to work. To avoid unnecessary travel staff work home when possible.  

 

Our suppliers 

  • Sika Design
  • Since 1942 rattan has been key in sustainable furniture production as it is the second fastest growing material which regenerates every 5-7 years. Sika design is the largest producer of rattan furniture and uses traditional crafting techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation. They create the furniture by bending and binding the natural material. This means that the use of toxic glues are not necessary and Sika design only uses toxin free varnishes. 

    Sika designs sustainability practices align with the UN’s 10 sustainable goals for more ethical production. One way they are meeting these goals is to make less but larger shipments via boat to reduce their carbon footprint. 

  • Bloomingville
  • Danish wholesaler Bloomingville makes sure that all supplier factories are inspected to ensure they are working with the highest standards regarding anti corruption, fair labour as well as environmental care. Sourcing agents assist them in choosing suppliers who are complying with the UN’s Global Ten principles.  

    Bloomingville has also curated a range called ‘founds’ which include pieces that are made from materials which have ended their life cycle, helping to reduce waste in the housewares industry. In addition to this, where possible their packaging is made from corn starch which is 100% biodegradable. 

  • Projektityyny
  • Nora Nilsson’s collections and ranges are an antidote to throw away fashion as she has taken time to design collections that will last a lifetime and create products that can be passed down through generations. 

    All of Nora’s collections are hand made in small batches in a factory that is socially and ethically approved by Sedex, the largest collaborative platform for sourcing data on supply chains.  This means that Nora has full visibility in every aspect of production. 

    The majority of Nora’s products are made with Chindi weave, recycled cotton strips which use up waste from the fashion industry but all of her products use natural fibres. 

    When you receive one of Nora’s products it will arrive in a fully biodegradable bag as well as a canvas bag that will last you a lifetime.
