Our biggest fundamental impact on sustainability is enabling designers to only produce the quantity that they think they can sell. Historically, brands had to produce minimum order quantities(MOQs) set by their manufactures. Coolulu’s network approach enables us to match each style with the best-fit manufacture based on quantity, complexity, time of year, etc.
Which we own or are partners with.Around the world that has a commitment to sustainability via:
1) Solar panels which feedback into the electrical requirement
2) Recycling of certain baths for washes which demand a large usage of water
3) A line dry system to cut down the use of high powered tumble dryers
4) A water treatment plant to ensure affluence meets environmental standards
5) Only LED lighting to reduce the overall carbon footprint
Economies of Scale.
As we grow our client base and the overall scale of our production volume we gain the leverage to require more from our manufacturing partners from a sustainability and social responsibility perspective. In a few years, cradle-to-grave sustainability will be the default for products produced via Coolulu vs. an optional track. Today it’s still more expensive to produce sustainably, so it’s really up to our clients to understand if their customers are willing to pay a premium.
