Brooklyn, NY, May 22, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Returnity has announced their partnership with Silfir as the sustainable clothing retailer goes live with their crowdfunding campaign. Silfir will utilize Returnity’s reusable packaging solutions to provide customers with a reusable shipping bag made from recycled plastic bottles. The partnership is a considerable step toward achieving a zero-waste lifestyle and contributing to the new self-sustainable circular economy.
Silfir is making the switch to zero-waste lifestyle more accessible. Customers can send garments back for repairs, re-dying and recycling, making it possible to extend the life of each garment and have a profound impact on the environment. At the end of the garment’s life, Silfir recycles the fabric as yarn to be integrated into new sweaters. Their service experience makes this important step towards true sustainable consumption as effortless as possible. Silfir has found that if customers wear clothes just three times longer than usual, their water, carbon dioxide and waste impact decreases by around 60 percent.

“Consumers aren’t inherently bad, but they are overwhelmed with the task of organizing themselves into living a truly sustainable lifestyle. Silfir aims to make responsible consumption easier for consumers,” said Founder, Hannah Kromminga. “We offer our customers an end-to-end care service covering the entire lifecycle of their clothes to extend their lifespan, because keeping things for longer is the most sustainable way of consuming.”
“Returnity is delighted to partner with Silfir to design and create the shipping packaging that will contribute to a truly zero-waste lifestyle for their customers, from shipment to return,” said Mike Newman, CEO of Returnity. “We pride ourselves on solving for the increased focus on circular shipping models, consumer attention to sustainability, and brand sensitivity to a differentiated customer experience.”
