Responsible Post-Purchase Logistics

Responsible Post-Purchase Logistics

Charlie Bradley Ross Saturday, 1 October 2022

What happens after your customers have bought your clothing is, in many ways, as important as what happens before, as far as environmental impact is concerned. How your garments are cared for, how long they last, and what happens at the end of their usable life can all affect the impact they cause. Of course, it is not always easy to control what your customers do with your products once they have bought them. However, there are some steps you, as a business, can take to encourage them to engage with them in the most sustainable way possible. 

In this lesson, we talk you through the things you can do to help your customers use your products sustainably.
