Pushaoo is centered around using sustainable materials. Our packaging is minimal and recyclable. We use zero plastic, recycled boxes and paper (for our thank you cards), and even our tag will be in stamp-form - using soy ink! Soy inks are a renewable resource and leave no petroleum behind, so you can use it on compostable materials.
We believe that sustainable fashion must be true to its values from start to finish. Our aim is to be accountable and transparent in the ways in which we operate, and always strive to implement innovative ideas to ensure our business aligns with our philosophy.
