March Journal Post

At Troubadour, we’re driven to leave the earth a little greener than we found it. This B Corp month, we're excited to celebrate the sustainable spirit that keeps us motivated. 

Our mission is to enhance the environment through every action we make. We continue to pursue the creation of sustainable products while minimising our ecological footprint. Therefore we are proud to be a certified B Corp brand -  a group of certified companies using business to help solve social and environmental problems.

One of our many proud achievements is our Orbis Circular Collection, a collection of bags that are fully circular products. Our collection is the first zero waste bags that can be recycled over and over again to eventually make something new.  

Our commitment to sustainability is very important to our company. To this end, we have implemented several key initiatives. Firstly, we are carbon neutral, offsetting 10% of our carbon emissions throughout our entire business. Furthermore, we have eliminated the use of fluorocarbons, opting instead for materials that are more environmentally friendly, with a focus on utilising recycled materials. In fact, our goal is for 95% of our products to be crafted from recycled materials, and we have already achieved 100% recycled content in all our packaging boxes. Looking ahead, we are determined to ensure that all our products are 100% recyclable by the year 2026.

By incorporating various materials into a bag, recycling becomes difficult. To overcome this challenge, we collaborated with labs and academics to innovate our fabrics, linings, zippers, and trim all sourced from a single material PET/polyester. This material can be recycled without any loss of quality, ensuring sustainability throughout the bag's lifecycle.

We take pride in our affiliation with the B Corp movement, allowing our business to be a catalyst for positive change. B Corps are distinguished by their adherence to rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability, and we are committed to upholding these values.

At Troubadour we are excited for the future and what it holds for our brand, we continue to look forward to the future and further minimise our environmental footprint.
