First we need to practice what we preach. What steps do we take internally to make our operations as sustainable (and inexpensive) as possible?


  1. We focus on stock management to reduce the likelihood of special orders or high freight costs per item.

  2. We choose items that are either sustainably manufactured or locally sourced to reduce the impact of the product. This may include organic products, use of recycled materials, fair trade suppliers, sustainable agricultural or manufacturing practices or limited edition and seasonal products.

  3. Our operations only buy or consume inputs that we really need to avoid excess consumption

  4. Instead of warehouses and offices, we use space at our homes (until we really need to move) to store stock and do office work (and support local cafes for meetings!) 

  5. Of course we recycle and minimise waste to landfill by avoiding packaging waste where possible and separating for recycling

  6. We use the local community owned energy company and our head office is actually off the grid!!

  7. One of Earthtown’s objectives is to actively support the preservation of our natural environments and their biodiversity. We will soon have an established fund which will help our customers contribute to that cause with maximum effect.​
