Country Attire is a celebration of luxury. We take pleasure in handpicking handcrafted heritage pieces and contemporary designs to add to our online collection, faithfully selecting bespoke items for you to enjoy. As people who appreciate the finer things in life, we devote ourselves to delivering an exceptional shopping experience from start to finish.
We are proud to be able to share our collection with so many people around the world but recognise the responsibility that we have to minimise any negative effects our company has on our planet. To reduce our impact, we have decided that our customers will receive 100% plastic-free, biodegradable, and widely recyclable packaging. This has eliminated over 14 tonnes of single-use plastic annually.
About our sustainable packaging
In addition, we have reduced the amount of packaging we use with our automated packaging machine. This innovative machine creates exact sized packages for our products, which has abolished the need for a further 90 lorry loads of packaging every year. Furthermore, the packaging we used in 2021 was 99.72% plastic free, made from 96.72% recycled content and 93.22% FSC Certified. Our void fill is 100% recycled paper, and the gum tape (made from natural resources) means that the complete package is recyclable and biodegradable.
Due to the opulence and quality of our product range, some orders will need increased protection, resulting in the use of plastic bubble wrap and the possibility of larger items still being delivered in a recycled plastic bag. We limit the quantity and types of less sustainable packaging our brands send to us, which caused our 2021 recycling rates to be as high as 84.92%. Often, the individual products are delivered to us in plastic polybags (which we are working on), meaning these will more than likely arrive inside our sustainable packaging. To solve this issue, we have developed the Plastic Cutback scheme, where we remove the polybag from the products before sending them to customers. When shopping with us, look out for the Plastic Cutback symbol to see what brands are signed up for the cause.
Furthering the lifespan of your packaging
Your doorstep should not be the end of your package’s journey. We encourage you to open your parcel with care, if you need to return an item, we have made it possible for you to use it again. You can extend its life even further by trying to reuse your packaging, and if not, all of our packaging is recyclable. If for any reason you cannot recycle, most of our packaging will biodegrade.
Our dedication to our discerning customers has spanned generations and we strive to continue providing the leading way to shop for premium goods. We are delighted with our decision to join the solution and we welcome you to be part of the next chapter in the Country Attire story.
